Intergenerational Study: Pray Like This


Steve Gaines, author of Pray Like THIS DVD series, states that prayer is the most dynamic discipline in the life of a believer. Yet it may be the most misunderstood, and the least taught.

In this study:

  • you'll see the significance of starting your prayers by acknowledging God as Father.

  • You'll learn what it means for His name to be recognized as holy.

  • You'll discover what you're asking God to do when you pray for His kingdom to come and His will to be done.

  • You'll see what Jesus meant when He told us to ask God for daily bread.

  • You'll understand the importance of asking for forgiveness in your prayers.

  • The study ends by emphasizing the need to ask God to deliver us from the evil one.

Intergenerational Wednesday Study: The Real God, by Chip Ingram


There is a deep sense of unease in our rapidly changing world.  We all know something has been lost but don’t know why or where it all leads. Popular culture says it’s all about me – but the way back, the path of hope, starts with knowing God for who He really is.

Join Chip Ingram in this in-depth study of seven attributes of God – His goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love, and faithfulness. It will change the way you think about God, yourself, and others.

The Real God study is:

  • an eight-session small-group study;

  • video based, and,
