Spiritual Growth

Wednesdays and Sundays we are intentional about focusing on
God and offering opportunities to grow in our faith.  

However, what happens when you go home?  
God wants a daily relationship with us. 
Below are some resources to help you grow in your faith, in your own time.

Prayer

Figuring out how to pray can be tough! Here are a few ways to get started.

1. Start writing!  Start with a blank piece of paper and write a letter to God.  

2. Be Still...

Go somewhere away from distractions, set a timer for 5-10mins.

Sit still and focus on your breathing, the smallest movements.  When you get distracted, repeat Psalm 46:10 "Be Still and Know I am God" to bring yourself back.
