2-Way Prayer: Communication with God

Date: Saturday, July 27th
Time:  8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Description: God has saved us so that we can have a relationship with Him.  How do we have that relationship if we can't see, hear, or feel the One we are in relationship with?  The Bible is filled with accounts of men and women interacting with a living God. In this seminar, participants will explore the biblical principles for how God interacts with us today, how to be assured that they are interacting with God, and how they can develop an intentional relationship to interact regularly with God in intimate, profound ways.
