  Sunday, March 3, 10, 17, 24...  9:00 a.m....  Conference Room A

Adult small group will continue their series based on the Max Lucado book, Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer.  Wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger?  With more fire, faith, and fervency?  The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance, too.  In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.  And Jesus gave them a prayer.  Not a lecture on prayer.  Not the doctrine of prayer.  He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer.  Couldn’t we use the same?  Join us in Conference Room A.


FOOD ADDICTS ANONYMOUS
