Have you registered for the retreat? You won’t want to miss the annual fun and fellowship of our annual Parish Retreat. One weekend together can accomplish more than dozens of occasional interactions with fellow Christ-Churchers. Come deepen friendships, establish new ones and be ready to laugh, learn and grow.
Our guest speaker, Fr. David Roseberry, will walk us through Lord’s Prayer. This short prayer of Jesus, a model for all his followers, is packed with depth and power. It touches on God’s forgiveness and provision, His sovereignty and reign, our temptation and deliverance–yet all this still does not exhaust the riches of Jesus’ prayer. As we dive into the deep end of Jesus’ prayer life, we will not only grow in our own life of prayer, but also in our knowledge of the magnificence and mercy of God. And as we become a people who cry from our hearts, “thy kingdom come, thy will be done,” He will shape us as a kingdom community.
