to Apr 22

Transforming Prayer Weekend

The Transforming Prayer weekend will be April 21 1-4pm (at Connections) & 22 1-4pm (at West side Church (at West side Church 6901 W. Summitview).

 

These two sessions will awaken your prayer life with simple, biblical patterns of prayer to help you overcome common barriers to praying effectively.  Learn to truly encounter God in prayer every day, as you worship Him through scripture and the Spirit. When you experience that profound difference of worship based prayer, your faith and prayer life will never be the same.

 In these practical sessions, you will gain valuable insights around these topics:

       Rethinking Prayer Lists

       Breaking Bad Prayer Habits

       More than a Five-Minute Prayer

       A Vision for Organic Revival

       Concluding Prayer Experience

Nothing to Prove

The visionary behind the million-strong IF:Gathering challenges Christian women to discover what it means to do life with God rather than always striving to impress him.
 
All too many of us struggle under the weight of life, convinced we need to work harder to prove to ourselves, to others, and to God that we are good enough, smart enough, and spiritual enough to do the things we believe we should.
Author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy.

Couples Life Group

The "Couple's Life group" will meet on Friday Nights at 6:30 PM and will run for 8 weeks.  We will be going through the book:  "The Meaning of Marriage." 

If you are interested in attending please contact Pastor Shane Del Vechio at: (509) 654-0257

               Click Image below to Purchase

Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious.
