Event Cancelled Due to Weather

Due to the snow, and concern about worsening weather conditions tonight, we have decided to cancel our prayer meeting, Learning to Pray. The good news is, it has been rescheduled for February 20 at 7:00 pm, and we hope that you can attend! Please email info@sjvan.org if you have any further questions.


Many Christians often don’t find prayer ‘easy’. We have a general sense that we should pray, and pray more. We are embarrassed, even ashamed of how we pray. The idea of praying aloud in a group fills us with all kinds of self-focused worries.

God loves every one of our prayers and every movement in our hearts to pray: he put the desire there in the first place. And we can help each other.

This year we are holding four quarterly prayer meetings. These gatherings are not for the well-trained expert at public prayer. Instead, we will try to learn to pray. Each night we will learn a simple, practical method of praying, then practice it together. Our first meeting will be at 7:00 pm on February 6 in the Church Fellowship Hall, and we hope that you will join us.
