Rhema hosts Battle Plan for Prayer
The Battle Plan for Prayer begins with prayer’s core purpose, its biblical design, and its impact throughout history. Readers will be guided scripturally through the fundamentals of how effective prayer works, inspired towards a closer, more intimate relationship with God, and shown how to develop specific prayer strategies for each area of life. Prayer can accomplish what a willing God can accomplish. It should be your first plan of attack in all of life’s battles, not your last resort. If you want to experience the joy of mightily answered prayer, then it’s time to engage with God at another level. This study is designed for anyone who wants to become a powerful person of prayer. Join Katie and Dewey Beckett for this nine week study Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 27. To register and for more information visit TheRhemaLife.com.

Rhema Christian Center offers new class
A new growth group is coming to Rhema Christian Center. “Killin It” by Andy Stanley will be held on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. with facilitator Don Sibold from Sept. 20 through Oct. 4. There’s something that rises up in each of us. It keeps us from apologizing, admitting we’re wrong, or showing weakness. It keeps us from forgiving. It causes us to lie about our pasts, to cheat instead of lose, and to feel happy when someone else fails. It stands in the way not only of our relationships with other people, but our relationship with God. What is this thing and how do we kill it? You won’t want to miss the opportunity to learn how to kill this thing that holds us all back. “Pride is a prison. It locks you in and other people out.”
