The Bible knows nothing of a solitary religion.

-John Wesley

We grow in faith together. That's why we think it's important to create community and build relationships. Whether it's through Wednesday night dinners, Sunday School, a Small Group, or Youth Group, there's a way for you to connect and grow in love for God and others.

Power of a Whisper: Practice, Practice, Practice

September 18, 2017 - September 23, 2017

           

Destination:  To gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a deeply committed follower of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  To be able to recognize your experiences of God and to discover God in new and different ways.

 

Memory verse:  I encourage you to read this Scripture every day and by the end of the week have it memorized or to the point of where you can paraphrase the verse(s).  Try writing it down on post-it notes and place them in areas where you will see it daily, for example the bathroom mirror or the dashboard of your car.

 

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalm 42:2

 

Daily Prayer:  

 

 

“God, here I am again, anticipating your presence, your power and your personal input into my lives.  As I dive into this session’s material, please help me to corral my

thoughts, channel my energies, still my body and focus only on you—who you are and

what you want to say to me today.  I love you, I live to serve you and I dedicate this

time to you now.  Amen”

(Whisper by Bill Hybels)

 

 

This week as you spend time in your special place and practice listening to the whispers of God, read the Scriptures and write down what Jesus did as he withdrew to spend time with God on a regular basis.
