Prayer Course 101

Jan 24-April 11, 6:00-7:30pm

This course will provide biblical and experiential teaching on prayer by a variety of instructors.  Together, we will unpack Scripture to form a theology on prayer; offer an active, dialogic learning environment; discovering what prayer is, Who created it, and why.  Outcomes will be:

  1. Biblical understanding of our identity in Christ and His desire to be with you.
  2. Greater enjoyment and practice of prayer—relating to and enjoying God.
  3. Personal spiritual growth.
