We're one week into the Renewal Project and I have been greatly encouraged by the things I'm hearing. I especially like that families are using the journal for family devotions and that we're doing this together as a church; reading the same text and praying the same requests each week binds us together even more as a family on mission together. Also, The weekly readings and prayer requests will be made available at the bottom of this post each week.
I want to remind and ask that corporate prayer be added to your weekly schedule on Sundays at 3:30pm. We can do everything else perfectly but if we forget to pray we do it on our own efforts. May God continue to strengthen us by his grace in the weeks and months to come this year. Soli Deo Gloria!

WEEK 2 EPIPHANY: Jan 6-13
Epiphany is concerned with the "manifestation" of Jesus as the light of the world and the bringing of God's reign. Our word epiphany comes from a Greek word meaning “manifestation or appearance,” and in church history this word has become closely associated with the revelation of Christ in connection with the visit of the Magi.
