Wednesday morning bible study group will begin a new study this coming week. Here are the details:

The name of the study is: The 28-day Prayer Journey by Chrystal Evans Hurst

Description:

Bible teacher Chrystal Evans Hurst was struggling in her prayer life, and even in her understanding of prayer. She took 28 days and challenged herself to go to God, to spend specific time talking with Him from different postures and in different ways. This five-session study was born of that original challenge. Chrystal teaches through four postures of personal prayer called out in Scripture: thanksgiving and praise, repentance, requesting/asking and yielding. She looks at why a practice of prayer is worth the effort, how to cultivate a heart of gratitude, what repentance offers us, how to ask boldly and humbly, and what it means to surrender to God.

If you’ve ever desired to deepen your relationship with God by having more intimate conversations with him each day, multiple times a day, you’re not alone. Come join us each Wednesday from 10:00 am — 11:30 am as we experience a true prayer journey that will change your conversations with God, little by little, one day at a time!

We launched a new series!
