Teach Us To Pray
Our community group series this winter will meet for six straight weeks February 19 through March 26. Our theme is prayer.
Granada Church small groups are the place where life happens. We can know what Jesus says, but real spiritual growth happens when we do what he says. We grow spiritually when we’re connected relationally.
What is unique about community groups?

Why Is Prayer Important?
Prayer is the means God has given us to enjoy him, to know him, to participate in what he is doing in the world, and to bring everything to our heavenly Father. God gives us the gift of communion with him through prayer. It is the way we come to God and maintain our relationship with him.
This community group series will be different in that we will do what we are talking about. We will pray. Each week you will set aside time to pray. You will be able to use the prayers of God’s people or pray on your own.
