Series Description

When it comes to God, it's easy to feel like you’re on the outside looking in. God is up there, but I’m down here struggling. Maybe my prayers will make it up to heaven, but I’m not really sure. Maybe I’ve done enough good to get God’s attention, but I’m not very certain. In this series, we’ll explore Jesus’ invitation to come inside, the good news that we’ve been given free and full access to the living God! God may be the King of heaven, but you have permission to enter the throneroom with freedom and confidence. Using the Prayer Jesus taught, we’ll learn to call God “our Father,” who can receive everything from our anger to our adoration, and who is the answer to our deepest hopes and fears.
