Power Prayer

1/7/2019

Sometimes we feel like our prayers go unanswered. But in this passage, we are resented with a prayer so in sync with God’s will that it is always answered.

Our preacher this Sunday was Andrew Bryant, one of the deacons at Gateway Downtown.

Our guest preacher for this Sunday is a missionary to the nations here in Cleveland, OH. Due to the sensitivity of that work, we are not publishing his name online.

The Body and the Blood (1 Corinthians 11:17-34)

11/12/2018
More
Taking the Lord’s Supper is just about the most “Christian” thing one can do. How is it, then, we understand its importance so poorly? This passage shows us that because the Lord’s Supper marks us out as one, it must be directed toward oneness. And that fact says a lot about who, what, and how. Please accept our apologies for the low quality of the audio in this recording.
