Coming in August: WORKSHOPS ON VISITATION AND PRAYER – Beginning August 5th Pastor Nikki will be offering a series of Equipping Workshops for people who wish to deepen their life of faith, spiritually strengthen relationships, and develop a compassionate posture to all God’s children. All workshops will be offered at 6:30 on Thursday evenings via Zoom:
August 5th: The Art and Skill of Home and Hospital Visitation
Our time will be dedicated to tips and suggestions for making in-house visits, and providing resources for those desiring to visit the hurting and lonely. We will examine the healing spiritual gifts that every person brings to the table in challenging situations. This workshop is recommended for Deacons, Elders, and those who feel called to a ministry of visitation. 

August 12th: Prayer Workshop #1
August 19th: Prayer Workshop #2
August 26th: Prayer Workshop #3- Guest Speaker
Each week participants will be introduced to a different prayer technique, and we will hear what Jesus, Thomas Merton, Richard Rohr, and C.S. Lewis, among others, have to say about prayer. On August 26th, Laraine Thulin will be our guest facilitator. Laraine is the Leader for the Prayer Ministry Team at Excelsior Covenant Church in Minnesota.
