Sunday Morning Prayer Group
What does a prayer group do? Well, the obvious answer is that it prays. Why are so many people uncomfortable with the idea? Probably because we feel that we will be judged by our expertise in praying, or that people might get the idea that we think ourselves a little more holy than our fellow Christians. Many people are comfortable talking to God in private, but doing it out loud in a group can be very intimidating. What if we run out of words before we have prayed a respectable length prayer? What if we become tongue-tied?
We are "two gathered in His name" and that's stronger than one. That is one of the benefits of the church meeting for the express purpose of prayer, but breaking the ice can be very hard to do. Be strong and courageous! It's really not as hard as it seems. The Sunday morning prayer group meets in the parlor at 9:30 AM.
Our prayers are simply prayers, not speeches to impress. It is God to whom we speak. We encourage you to please take some time on Sunday morning to pray with us that our worship would be pleasing to God, that we would come together being aware that we are coming into the presence of God, that he would be the center of our praise and adoration.

Evening Study - First
Tuesday of the month (except July & August) at
7:15 PM in the church Parlor.
Evening Bible Study meets at 7:15PM the first Tuesday of the month in the Parlor. There is always good discussion, good fellowship and enrichment of our knowledge of the Bible. We invite you to join us this month and see how group study can open your understanding of God's Word.
We come to the conclusion of Jesus' great Sermon on the Mount. He has described the structure we are to build. It is the Christian life, and it is an intimidating assignment. Is it strange, now that we have seen the details of the blueprint and have learned what is expected of us, only now Jesus tells us how to find the land on which we will build and how the foundation must be laid? It is true, and it looks like we may be building in Taborton, not Manhattan. It is also true that though he mentions it last, the foundation is extremely important. The people to whom he preached the sermon learn that many who start out to build, people we might consider good candidates for the task, may not be successful. They are astonished at his teaching. We extend a sincere welcome to you to join us in our study. Our study passage is Matthew 7:13-28. Jesus' words are still astonishing if we open our hearts and receive them as he spoke them.
