During the summer we're going to be experimenting with a variety of different Wednesday night opportunities. Starting tonight we're kicking off the month-long One Prayer series. One Prayer is a gathering of more than a thousand churches across the world coming together to worship, serve and grow. Last year our college ministry participated in One Prayer and I'm excited that we're expanding to include the entire church this year.
We're using the One Prayer teaching for a Wednesday night worship experience. It's going to be a great time for people of all ages to get together and learn more about who God is. In addition to music and outstanding teaching, we'll have group discussion time at our tables. If you've ever participated in Alpha it will be a similar conversational experience. There is a light dinner available at 5:30 or you can come for worship starting at 6:30. One Prayer is open to people of all ages, and there are children's ministry activities available through 5th grade.
John 17:20-23 - My
prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in
me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as
you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world
may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you
gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.
May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you
sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
