How well do you know The Lord’s Prayer?

Often we pray the Lord’s Prayer, words which we have memorized that take 30 seconds to say. But do we honestly know we are praying? Do we know what we are asking of God? Do we know why we are praising Him? Do we understand what it means to forgive?

Join us as we worship, pray, and dig deep into the Lord’s Prayer.  We will examine each of the phrases of this Prayer in-depth, and truly make them part of our hearts.

SUNDAY, JULY 10 • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
