Dear Friends in Christ,
As we get ready to welcome our children back to school, we are also getting ready for our lives to become even more busy. We need to make time to pray and give God time to speak to us. This is not always easy.
I invite you to join us on Wednesdays beginning August 31 at 7:00 for a series on prayer and how to pray with scripture. We will use the Lectio: Prayer series in FORMED. Please see the following link: https://watch.formed.org/lectio-prayer-with-dr-tim-gray
