HRF Weekly Update - Oct 7, 2018

NEW CITY CATECHISM #40
Question: What should we pray??
Answer: The whole Word of God directs and inspires us in what we should pray, including the prayer Jesus himself taught us.
Scripture Memory Verse: Ephesians 3:14–21
WEEKLY DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES
Here are a few discipleship resources our elders recommend checking out this week.
- Tips for Teaching Kids About Marriage - Children need to understand that marriage isn’t what we think it should be. Marriage is what God says it is.
- You Can Improve Your Relationship with God - If today you feel far from God, do not despair. Like a swimmer in the waves of the sea, reach down by faith and feel the solid ground of your union with God beneath your feet. It will always be there. And then redouble your efforts to pursue the joy of communion with God.
- The Problem of Prayerlessness - A church’s commitment to prayer is one of the greatest determiners of its effectiveness in ministry.
Please read them and use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another. You can also view an archive of recommended discipleship resources here.
