Adult Bible Workshop Weekend 2019

After hosting a Youth Bible Workshop Weekend for many years,
Fairview  announces our first Adult Bible Workshop Weekend.

Devoted to Prayer
October 12, 2019

Workshop and lecture sessions dedicated to prayer.

praying hands on Bible The early disciples "with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer"(Acts 1:14) and the apostles committed that "we will devote ourselves to prayer and the ministry of the word"(Acts 6:4).

Growing in our communication with God takes commitment and resolve. Yet we often have questions and concerns about prayer: how to do it, how to get better at it, and why it sometimes doesn't seem to work.

Three breakout sessions will examine the Bible's teaching on prayer to answer some of those difficulties:

– How to build prayer habits by looking at Jesus, David, and the habits families can build.
– A look at Paul's prayers to think about making our prayers deeper.
– Answers to some of the tough questions about prayer.

Two general sessions - "What is the point of prayer?" and "Does prayer make a difference?" - will give direction to our studies and a better appreciation for the blessing of prayer.

Workshop will be held at the Fairview building.
