Co-Leaders: Neeley Caldwell and Robin Ennis
September 10 – November 26, continuing in the Spring
The Retreat |  6:00 p.m.

There is no need we will face in parenting – or that our kids will confront in their lives - that God has not already thought of and provided for in his Word. And there can be no greater privilege than partnering with Him through our prayers to accomplish His best purposes in the lives of the people we love. Praying the Scriptures for Your Children teaches you how and what to pray for your child(ren) regarding their faith, character, safety, relationships, future, and more. In Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children, the author shares prayers designed with your adult children in mind, whether they're just leaving the nest, flying well on their own, or struggling to take off at all. Join us as mothers or grandmothers to pray for your children or grandchildren whether young or old. Purchase appropriate book online.

Led by Gayron and Rosemary Davis

August 16 – November 15  | 6:30 pm| Room 202

In this study we will examine Christ’s teachings on prayer so we’ll not only be encouraged to pray more, but we’ll be instructed to pray more correctly. Bible only. Study guides will be provided in class.

Explore will help you learn the main underlying theme that ties the Bible together, explore major religions and peoples of the world – a third of which (three billion) are unreached with no access to the gospel, and discover God’s purpose for your life: praying, mobilizing, welcoming, sending, and going.
