Summer Sermon Series Begins July 21 - Daring Prayer: The Meaning of the Lord’s Prayer for Today
We strive to follow Jesus Christ by being… Attentive to the Word
Pastor Scott begins a 7-week summer sermon series focused on the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer for today. Jesus taught his disciples what is now the best-known prayer in Christianity as a result of a request from his disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.”
Prayer is one of the most basic and potentially most transformative spiritual practices of our faith. The seven-week series will examine the Lord’s Prayer line by line as we seek to understand the life of prayer for Christians. How does God answer prayer? How do we Presbyterians understand prayer? If we are reluctant pray-ers, can the Lord’s prayer teach how to pray? We’ll consider these and many other questions about the life of prayer.
Because of busy summer schedules, each sermon will stand on its own. If you miss a Sunday or two you can always catch up by listening to the sermon podcasts here. Copies of sermons are available electronically via a PDF file through Katie in the church office. Hard copies are also available outside the church office door in the narthex.
