Tower Tidings - Week of March 11, 2018

"Teach us to Pray!" (Luke 11:1)


The disciples requested of Jesus: "Teach us to Pray!" (Luke 11:1). Jesus responded by teaching what we know as the Lord's Prayer. In our 8:30a Sunday Lenten Class, we are looking at how this model prayer introduces us to a variety of prayers. Join us this week as we learn from Jesus all the many ways we can pray!

Organ Recital Series
Thursdays in Lent, 11:30a-12p
