Lenten Studies

This Lent (March 1–April 15, 2017), we center ourselves around the prayers of God's beloved people throughout the corners of the world and here at our doorsteps in the city of Houston. To be a house of prayer for all nations is to be who we already are in Christ – continually being formed in faith, hospitable in the deepest sense, rooted in worship, sent out in mission. Won't you join us?

Find ways to connect in small groups this season through Spring 2017 Gatherings.
