- 1st , 3rd , & 5th Wednesday of month will be prayer meeting
- 2nd and 4th will be a class on Hearing the Voice of God* with Rev. Scott.
So many desire to hear God’s voice but struggle to know if it is really Him. We will discuss people who connected to God and the clues to hearing Him. A.W. Tozer wrote “The voice of God is a friendly voice. No one need fear to listen to it unless he has already made up his mind to resist it.”
Sunday School @9:00- 10:00am (starting September 19th) will have two options
- Leading a Quiet Life – Cecilia Lam
Paul urged the Thessalonians to make it their ambition to lead a quiet life; they should mind their own business and work with their hands (1 Thess. 4:11). When the norm is to strive for efficiency and a typical day is filled with endless interruptions and distractions, how do we lead a quiet life? Where do we draw the line of “my business”? Join us from Sep 19 to Dec 12 to explore how to unhurry, rhythms of daily office and sabbath, and boundaries.
- Life Together: a discussion & prayer time about last week’s sermon with Pastor Scott
