Men's and Women's Bible Study returns in September on September 18 at 7PM.
This fall our congregation is focussing on our prayer life individually and collectively and "Praying the Prayers of the Bible" by James Banks, published by Discovery House Publishers [Our daily Bread] is a great tool to look at:
- Prayer to praise and honour God
- Prayers to say thank you
- Prayers to strengthen faith and give ourselves to God
- Prayers about everyday needs
- Prayers to confess sins and humble ourselves
- Prayers for guidance and direction
- Prayers for help and protection
- Wrestling prayers
- Blessing prayers
The first Bible Study will be on Wednesday September 18th at 7 p.m. and will be facilitated by both Laurie and Anne Morris. It is open to both men and women and we hope that everyone will come out to the first session. We aim to wrap up around 8:20pm each week.
At the first session, we will take a vote on how we will proceed - either completely co-ed or whether we will have a 25 minute teaching time, followed by splitting into two smaller discussion groups - one for the women who wish to be with women [facilitated by Anne Morris] and the other for men and women [facilitated by Laurie Morris]
We will have enough of the books for everyone which we have been able to get from Day of Discovery/Our Daily Bread Canadian office for $5 each! They are easily read [large print] and each chapter should function as a great discussion starter.
