Lenten Prayer Study: Do you value prayer as a Christian Practice, but you’re in a rut with your prayers? Does it seem difficult to know exactly how to pray? Wouldn’t it be great to discover expressions of prayer that draw you closer to God? Join us for four Wednesday night classes in March during Lent. Ruth Rucker and Doris Griffin would like to share some rich insights into prayer that they encountered during the Companions in Christ study, The way of Prayer. The class will Resume on April 19th.
