Greetings E-news Friends,  

This Sunday 
Psalm 51 was written by King David during a dark and broken time in his life. So, writing a prayer of repentance and restoration was an understandable next step. For some Christians, a life of consistent repentance seems unnecessary, especially if life seems to be going well. But repentance is more than starting life in Christ, it is drawing near and becoming more like Christ. Join us Sunday as we walk through the Psalm 51 and see the joy and freedom God has for people that walk in repentance and worship.  

To follow up on the message this Sunday, read Psalm 51 each day next week. Then use the prayer guide to focus on just one verse each day. Let it guide you to greater depths of praying. You can find the prayer guide here 

Worship Night
Mark your calendars for a night of worship on Sunday evening, June 9th at 6:00 PM. Our worship team will be joined by worship leader and musician John Brewer for a unique and unforgettable evening of worship, prayer and community as we walk out the teaching of Praying the Psalms.  Child care will be available for ages birth-3.  So that we can plan sufficiently, children must be registered by June 2.  To register, click HERE.

As the school year comes to an end, the excitement for being in a new grade begins. Briarcliff’s Next Generation Ministries will promote to the next grade on Sunday August 18th.

Greetings E-news Friends,  

This Sunday 
How do you pray when facing difficult times? What do you do when you feel like you have lost your way? This Sunday we will unpack David’s prayer in Psalm 25 when he faced some very uncertain days. It will be like looking into his prayer journal and seeing what he wrote as his prayer. You will find this very encouraging and helpful in guiding you in praying. If you missed last Sunday on Psalm 23, open it here.  

To follow up on the message this Sunday, read Psalm 25 each day next week. Then use the prayer guide to focus on just one verse each day. Let it guide you to greater depths of praying. You can find the prayer guide here.  

Mother’s Day
This Sunday is Mother’s Day. It’s a great day to honor the influence of our moms. In a recent survey, I noticed the overwhelming influence mothers have made on us. According to the survey, our moms are the major influence on our early understanding of God, the bible, the need for church, and prayer. Make every effort to join your mother in worship at Briarcliff this Sunday.  

Prayer Breakfast  
Our next prayer Breakfast will be May 18th. This is a critical part of our church and our lives. Here is why. E. Stanley Jones says it well. “In prayer you align yourselves to the purpose and power of God and He is able to do things through you that He couldn’t do otherwise. For this is an open universe, where some things are left open, contingent upon our doing them. If we do not do them, they will never be done. For God has left certain things open to prayer—things which will never be done except as we pray.”  Let’s not miss anything God has to say or do in our lives. Sign up here
