Draw the Circle– I invite you to join Dave and I in prayer for the forty days of Lent. I would ask that you would purchase one book, Draw the Circle, by Mark Batterson. You can purchase it online or Pastor will get you a copy. You will be asked to read one chapter a day, about three pages, but you will want to read more. It will be a blessing for you to start or end your day this way. Find out how circling prayer can enhance your life and grow our church. If you only take on one discipline this Lent have it be this! Sign up today to take on this challenge with us!
God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think! Ephes 3:20
