Praying for a breakthrough is just one of the topics in our Lenten Study, “40 Days of Prayer”. This Rick Warren study and sermon series will start the first Sunday of Lent, February 18th and we will culminate on Easter Sunday, April 1st. As we build our prayer lives through worship on Sunday morning and small group studies throughout the week, we are certain that God WILL break through whatever barriers we might have and shine brightly through us. If you are not already in a small group but want to participate in this study, you can sign up here. In addition to other small groups, Randy will lead a study on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 and Debbie will lead one on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-10:30.
