Jesus taught in words and deeds that the greatest strengths anyone has available to them are prayer and faith. Prayer is a dialogue between us (humanity) and divinity. Faith is the resource within a person to face all things both seemingly and actual in impossibility through God. Putting these two together is at the center of the life of a believer.
During the month of September, we will focus as individuals and corporately on the practice of prayer, and the study of faith. These 4 sermons will help all of us, regardless of our level of faith, to circle (focus) on those elements that will glorify God and make us stronger and more complete for the role we have in this world.
Draw a circle around September in your calendar, draw a circle around the things you want to see happen in your life and world, and let’s learn and gain insights on how to employ this most powerful tool…PRAYER!
Join us for our traditional style worship at 9 am, Sunday school for all ages at 10 am, and contemporary style worship at 11 am.
40 Day Prayer Challenge:
With many new, exciting and growing elements of our church, now is the time to lift all to Jesus through prayer!
Ourvision to be a beacon of faith and service calls us to this season of prayer.
Our purpose of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ points to prayer as the source to see this happen.
Ourcore values of Knowing God, Loving God, and Serving God require we put into play the practice of prayer as one family. Our aim is to allow God to speak to us about what he is calling us to do, not what we want to do!
You are invited to join us for a 40-day prayer devotion. Each day, we will join hearts and minds around a brief scripture and a joint prayer. These devotions will invite us to consider how we are being called to pray for our church, our world, and the future in ways that will really make a difference in our lives. It is our intent to saturate every aspect of St. John’s in prayer.
We are encouraging everyone to sign up online to receive the email devotions or text 40PRAYER to the number22828. These daily devotions will be sent to you everyday at 7 am via email. You can also find the devotions on Facebook or Twitter, or pick up a hard copy on Sep. 6 at church. Join us, as we ask God to direct our dreams to action in joy and power. Engage with us in prayer! ~ Rev. Troy
