The Lord’s Prayer: it’s prayed in multiple languages, by millions of Christians, around the world each week. We start by praying the famous words that Jesus taught us to pray, saying: “Our Father, who art in heaven…” Yet these well-rehearsed words, that were perhaps memorized in our childhood, are not just sentences to gloss over. They have deep meaning, and profound impact upon our lives, neighbors, and communities. Join us this season of Lent, as we dig deeper into the meaning and purpose of The Lord’s Prayer.
You’re invited to worship, study and serve throughout Lent and Holy Week. In-Person Worship every Sunday at 9:30 am (Brighton and Whitmore Lake) and 11 am (Brighton). Worship online Sundays at 9:30 am through Facebook or YouTube.
You are invited to join a church-wide Lenten study on The Lord’s Pray, the Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught by Rev. Adam Hamilton. The book dives into the familiar prayer and helps us explore each of its rich lines and their meaning. Through this study we hope to better understand what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves through its words.
Join a small group study, or read the book independently. Copies of the book are available in the church office. Digital copies are also available for purchase through Cokesbury.com and other retailers. A video component complements the study, which may be viewed on Amplify Media.
