Bible & Prayer Resources

We want to help you grow in your relationship with God. Reading the Bible is an important part of knowing God and growing in your relationship with Him. We need to be active learners of the Bible, which requires that we spend individual time in God's Word in addition to the time we spend listening to teaching and preaching from the Bible by another. We want to help you grow in this area! Here you'll find weekly resources to help you read, study and apply the Bible to real life.
