ESSENCE: A Soul Nourishing Experience 


     ‘The heart of God longs for our presence. He invites us to come home to where we belong, to come home to that for which we were created. His arms are stretched out wide to receive us.

     He welcomes us home to serenity, peace, and joy; home to friendship, fellowship, and openness; home to intimacy, acceptance, and affirmation. The key to this home, this heart of God, is prayer. The Father’s heart is open wide—you are welcome to come in.’

~From “Coming Home: An Invitation to Prayer” by Richard Foster~

   Throughout time, people have engaged in four essential elements of connecting with the heart of God:

  • Recognizing & worshiping the characteristics God has revealed to us through ADORATION
  • Addressing whatever causes brokenness in our relationship with God through CONFESSION
  • Taking time to reflect, remember, and express gratitude to God through times of THANKSGIVING
  • Identifying & daring to boldly ask God for the things on our hearts through SUPPLICATION

     In our time together, we will explore the ESSENCE of communicating with God in these four areas through Bible teaching, soul-interactive experiences, and times of reflection.
