SPIRITUAL GROWTH

WALKING WITH GOD

Each session of Walking With God will have three parts: 1) reflection on various scriptures to see how God operates and how we can interact with Him; 2) application discussions; and 3) a short prayer together asking God to cause that growth to happen in us. The goal of each session will be to foster a closer, more intimate walk with our God.
