P.R.A.Y.

Day: Sunday

Start Date: 01/15/2017
Location: E-108
Leader: Jerry & Tammy Ledgerwood
Childcare: Yes
The P.R.A.Y. connect group is for anyone desiring an in-depth, interactive study on the life of Jesus as recorded in the book of Luke. We are not as concerned about getting through the gospel of Luke as we are the gospel of Luke getting through us. We are always looking for ways to challenge our understanding of Jesus and how to best apply new revelation to our current walk with Him. We are also a group who care deeply for each other in prayer. Most of us are sandwiched between concerns for aging parents and the joys and challenges of young grandchildren.

Many people say that the symbolism and visions concerning the "End of the Age" are too complicated and difficult to understand. Therefore, why try? It is important to understand what God is communicating in His Word. It is written for a purpose and the purpose is not to be ignored because it seems too complicated. Come join us this winter as we begin to achieve some clarity to what is written about the future. It will be a fun and informative time in the Word as we gain new insights and discover the scriptures in a new way.

Romans clearly explains God's grace and justification by faith through the completed work of Christ on the Cross and teaches us to be led by the Holy Spirit. In studying and searching these scriptures, we will surely find and experience more of Him whom we love!

This study will be followed by John Piper’s six-week video study God Is the Gospel. The Bible tells us the gospel is good news not because of its many peripheral blessings, but because it brings us to God and to utter delight in him.
