August 10, 2014 • Sam Mahlstadt

Prayer makes us a people who always see that there’s more going on than meets the eye. To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world. So when we see poverty and disease, the lack of justice, hostility and hatred we bring these things to God and we ask that the rule and reign of God would break in.

Blessed to Be a Blessing • August 24, 2014 • Paul Stewart

The benediction is a prayer that God would bless and preserve His people as they leave the assembly and that He would reveal himself to them while granting them grace and peace. Therefore as they leave, the people of God carry this grace and peace out offering it to the world around them.
