On August 14 we will begin a 4-week sermon series about prayer. We will talk about what prayer is and isn’t, why it’s important to pray, how to grow in our prayer lives, and we will talk about the purpose of prayer.


Do we pray just so we can tell God what we want and need, or is there more to it than that? During this sermon series you will be encouraged to spend time praying. Soon there will be a prayer wall going up and at some point you will be invited to take part in a prayer walk.

In connection with the sermon series on prayer there will be two small groups that will meet in September to focus on learning more about prayer. One group, led by Tom Cordeal ((will meet on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (location TBA) on September 3, 10, 17, and 24.

Another group, led by Kathy Schmid (314-503-1101) will meet in the lower level of the Education Wing on Wednesday afternoons in September from 4:30 until 5:30. The conversation will continue (or begin for those who want to come later) over dinner at a nearby restaurant, “When We Pray….” ending at 6:45.

Look for sign up sheets for these small groups in the back of the church.
