Announcements, Jan. 8, 2016
If you stop and think about it for a moment, the idea of prayer is staggering. The Almighty Creator of the universe not only allows, but beckons his people to speak to him as Father. This is incredible! And, through Jesus, he has given us instruction on how to pray (and how not to pray). I'm really looking forward to diving into our text this week, Matthew 6:5–15. See you Sunday!
