Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.

Discipleship Series ~ Our everyday “Yes” to God

Each Sunday this fall we will be walking together through a series called, “Discipleship – Our everyday ‘Yes’ to God.” All throughout Scripture, meals offer powerful imagery for who God is, who we are, and what life is really about. In the gospels, the tables that Jesus shares with others often prompt invitations for them to follow him. We will be exploring some of these “eating stories” as a way of encouraging one another in our everyday “Yes” to God.

All are welcome to join us at the table each week!
