Join Us for the Upcoming All-Church Concert of Prayer!
If you have been with us at all this summer, you know that we are in the middle of a preaching series on prayer. Prayer has been integral to the Christian life since the very beginning, with rich, deep roots penetrating all the way back through the Old Testament to Adam and Eve’s conversations with God in the Garden of Eden. Jesus himself, in addition to his own well-attested prayer life, taught on prayer, modeled prayer and on more than one occasion called and outright commanded his disciples to pray. Prayer—communication with God, is what makes the Christian Faith a relationship.
Not that we need more reason than all of that to pray, but we have more reason. Here at First Free, we have vision to see individuals become Christ centered and Christ sent together, and prayer is crucial to that vision. Prayer provides direction for our mission, so that we ensure we can ensure that we are about God’s work, and not our own. Prayer provides the power—to make us more like Christ, to change hearts and transform lives, and ultimately to be obedient to God’s call. We can do none of that on our own.
On Wednesday, September 2, at 6:30pm, we want to invite and encourage everyone to join us for an all-church concert of prayer. We want to put into practice—together—what we have been hearing. We want to thank God—together—for what he has already done and will do through the ministry of First Free. We want to seek God’s leading and direction—together—as we kickoff another year of ministry. And finally, we want to intercede—together—for our neighborhood, for our friends, family and co-workers.
Please plan to join us, we would love to see you there!
