The Summer Sermon & Study Series entitled “Restoring God to the Center of Life Through Prayer is designed to smoothly dovetail into the previous series on worship. The goal of the series is to renew and recalibrate First Afrikan’s understanding of relationship with God through the intentional practice of prayer. Each Wednesday is Prayer Day at First Afrikan Church. Everyone is encouraged to pray every day but on Wednesdays the community is asked to pray at 7 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m. 2 p.m. 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Instead of the weekly Wednesday Bible Study, the preacher of the Sunday sermon will meet on Sundays after service for a one-hour discussion of the biblical text and prayer each week starting July 9th.  Wednesday Bible Study will resume August 16th.
