Worship - September 10, 2017 Sermon: “Teach Us to Pray” Rev. Kim Rodrigue

Sunday, September 10 we will begin a series of sermons on prayer. Today's sermon is about prayer and its importance in the life of Christian faith. In the next weeks, we will be exploring the different phrases in the Lord's Prayer. Our worship will be complemented by the singing and praying of some different versions of the Prayer.  If you, or someone you know, has been struggling with whether prayer is relevant in a turbulent time like our own, or how to pray in meaningful ways, or how to make a difference in the world, or what faith has to do with contemporary struggles, these sermons may speak to your concerns.


One of my commitments in my weekly work schedule is to have some set hours at a place outside the church building. Sometimes people are more comfortable talking with a pastor outside of the walls of a church. It may be a time for you to drop by or to bring a friend to visit. You don't have to have a particular need to stop by, but it is fine if you do.

It’s a time for conversation on anything from personal matters to church concerns to world peace – or anything else.

It is also a good way for me to meet people who aren't already in the church, but who may have interest in issues of spirituality and meaning. I will be your face in the community when I do this. You can join me for coffee Tuesday mornings or drinks Wednesday evenings.

Pastor Kim’s coffee & beer hours:

  • Tuesday, September 12 – 7-9am                    Rue De La Course(S. Carrollton & Oak St.)
  • Wednesday, September 13 – 5-7pm               Oak (8118 Oak Street)

I will continue to be at the church on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4 for anyone who wants to drop by. I'm glad to meet with you at another time, either at the church or someone else. Just call or email me at kim@fpcno.org
