What’s Happening at First Church, by Pastor Bass

How to Talk with God

Last Sunday I started a two part sermon on the Lord’s Prayer. It’s entitled, “How to Talk with God.” Next Sunday (July 24) we will examine the remainder of the Lord’s Prayer. A printed guide will be given out in worship that can be used for daily devotions based on how Jesus taught us to pray. I use it and have found it most helpful.

See you Sunday in the Lord’s house!

18:22 Then Elijah said to the people, “I, even I only, am left a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets number four hundred fifty.
