The New Prospect Christian Education Ministry
invites you to participate in a new learning
series based on Max Lucado’s book

“GRACE: 
More than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine”

Over the course of several weeks we will attempt to unpack an important theological construct known as Grace and try to come to a deeper understanding of what it means in our life with Christ. During our time together we will intentionally explore just how amazing God’s Grace really is.

Please join us on Sundays in the New Prospect Library during the Christian Education hour (9:30am) to learn more about God’s Amazing Grace.

Come join us for Special Monday Night Prayer at 6:00pm
on October 8, 2018 in the WRJ Chapel

We are Praying for “Healing and Peace”
We are praying for “The Future of our Church”
We are praying for “Renewed Passion for Ministry”
