As we wrap up our series on prayer, we consider how important it is to incorporate the truth of the Bible into our lives of prayer.
Asking God for things can be tricky. He knows the desires of our heart, he knows what we need, he is the omnipotent God of creation, and yet, we are taught that we lack things either because we do not ask for them or because we are asking with wrong motivations. This week we dig into how and why we ask for things in prayer.

This message unpacks the concept of finishing well as the year comes to an end and asks, How do you want to be remembered? When you started the race with Christ, you knew that somewhere out there was a finish line. What will your Departure, Legacy and Reward be.
The second half of Ephesians chapter two begins to teach us what it looks like to be unified as a group of people in Christ.
