    Celebration of Prayer Set for May 9
    The most powerful -- yet the least used -- force in the world is prayer.  Join us for a celebration of prayer.  We'll begin with a  discussion on different types and styles of prayer, then we'll put that into practice!  We'll have a light lunch of sloppy joes and other treats.  There will music and dancing.  And there will be time for individual prayer concerns to be lifted up.  Come join us for this wonderful time of celebration with our Lord.
    1 - 2:30 p.m.
    Saturday, May 9


    New Life offers a Biblical Greek course every Wednesday at 10 a.m.  New participants are welcome.

    Draw near to God and He will draw
    near to you.  James 4:8

    Get Connected

    4.4.40 Begins April 6
    Join other prayer warriors in this Duluth-wide initiative to pray, love and serve our city.  It's the hope and desire that through these 40 days, the Church will be tuned into what God is doing in Duluth and join Him in it! 
    Throughout the 40 day period, people are asked to spend 4 minutes a day at 4 p.m. praying for the city. They may elect to receive prayer reminders via phone, text or e-mail with a short verse and prayer focus for each day. 
    In addition, seek at least 4 different service opportunities over the course of the 40 days.  Choose to serve in your neighborhood with friends and family, or with the many non-profit organizations in Duluth.
    This year's initiative runs from Monday, April 6 through Friday, May 15. For more information, contact Ryan Underwood at 625-6200.
