“Lord, Teach Us To Pray”
The Lord’s prayer is used in some form in almost all branches of the church. Since the days of the early church, Christians have used this prayer in personal and communal worship. The Lord’s Prayer is so familiar to many of us that we do not remember when we learned to pray it. But what does the prayer mean? Join in worship as we consider together what the petitions of the Lord’s prayer mean for out life as Christians.
September 10: Our Father – Matthew 5.43-48
September 17: Hallowed Name – Matthew 18.21-35

Disciples Make Disciples
“19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. Look, I myself will be with you every day until the end of this present age.” Matthew 28:19-20
The purpose of our congregation is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Discipleship is an ongoing process of being shaped and mentored in our faith, while inviting others to be shaped and mentored by this faith. We believe disciples are formed through a process of CONNECTING with God and one another, GROWING in our knowledge and love of God and each other, and SERVING God and our neighbor.
Throughout the month of August we will explore the disciple making process that is the core of who we believe God is calling us to be at Inman Park Church. Join us as we explore:
August 6: Disciples Making Disciples
August 13: Connecting with Jesus and Others
August 20: Growing in our Faith
August 27: Serving One Another
