Matthew 6:5-15

Watch Live Sunday 10:30 AM

Thanksgiving Project | Qwanoes


Based on Matthew 6:5-15, Pastor Steve addresses the question "Can we change God's mind?" In order to understand the answer to this, Pastor Steve helps us first look at what prayer is, what the point of prayer is, and what happens when we pray. This is the fifth sermon in the "Ask Anything" series, and is in direct response to questions asked by the congregation and community.


To make the most of the live stream consider the following:

1. Sacred Time | PAUSE. Though you’re not in the church building, this can still be a time to stop everything else, focus solely on God and momentarily set aside the day-to-day issues and concerns.

2. Distraction Free | Remove anything that may distract such as turning off other devices, turning off notifications, and not trying to accomplish other tasks like eating or household chores.

3. Follow Sermon Notes | You can find the sermon notes that are usually handed out Sunday morning under the Sermon Notes above. On Monday, we will also post the sermon video, manuscript, and follow-up questions. 

4. Pray | Continually.  Over the phone.  In your families.  Use FaceTime, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or other social media platforms.
