Lenten sermon series
A Season of Prayer will help us see prayer as the power we need to transform our lives, our relationships, our faith community and our world. Our prayers sometimes tend to be limited to petitions and intercessions for things we want. Deep prayer seeks what God wants. This series will focus on prayer for life change.

Pastor Jerry's Lenten Challenge
I invite you during the six weeks of Lent to join me in a two-meal fast one day each week. I will be skipping Friday breakfast and lunch and then eating Friday dinner but do what best fits your schedule. The purpose is not to prove anything to God but focus our hearts and minds on God instead of food. Use that extra time for prayer, reflection, reading of scripture or a great book. You will be surprised how a little hunger can bring you into the presence of God.
Pray the All-Church Initiative Prayer based on Joel 2:28 each day at 2:28pm beginning February 25. Imagine the power of our church united in prayer together! Find the prayer here ... www.NoblesvilleFirst.com/prayer
