We focus prayers on the needs of our community both as a congregation and outside our walls. Each week we ask you to pray for the ministries and health of a church in our city and a church on our district, as well as a group of people who are likely to need the extra prayer support.
Wichita Area Church: Greater St Mary Baptist Church
Kansas District Church: Emporia First Church of the Nazarene
Special focus: We remember those who are struggling right now—some in faith, some in their body, some in their relationships, some in the finances, some in their direction. We entrust these people and these situations to God.
We encourage you to find ways to engage your faith beyond Sundays. The things we focus on and the actions we take help form our faith, values and lives. We sometimes post suggested practices on social media on Mondays, but we also encourage you to:
Read through the bible in a year with The Story that Changes Everything. A brief, daily podcast to help you navigate each daily reading. More information here.
Do you like podcasts? Here are a couple that we listen or have listened too on things of faith. You may not always agree with them, they come from a variety of backgrounds, but they can help you grow and stretch your faith.
BEMA - The BEMA Podcast is a walk-through of the context of the Bible and the Text itself, as well as surrounding history. We deconstruct our common readings of the Bible and attempt to reconstruct them through the lens of historical context.
The Bible for Normal People - A weekly podcast talk show having serious talks about the sacred book. Hosted by Peter Enns and Jared Byas.
Bible Worm - A weekly look at the Narrative Lectionary text we look at in our worship gatherings. One host is a Christian pastor and one is a Jewish rabbi.
Spend time in prayer (private, out loud, journaling, whatever) about what new thing(s) you'd like God to do in your faith, life, church, community? What might it look like for you to work toward these things? What new things have you experienced in the recent past?
