Hi Friends,

Prayer is one of the most essential things to a vibrant spiritual life.  Yet, it can often be one of the most challenging things for us to do.  This Sunday we are going to follow Jesus into His school of prayer as He teaches about the life giving nature of prayer.

See you on the best day of the week!

Pastor Jeff

Church Luncheon- Announce and mention Eagles game

Today, we will be providing a luncheon (pizza, hoagies, salad and chips) immediately following our worship service.  Not only will this be a great time to fellowship, but we will also be giving some important updates regarding our church.  All are welcome to attend.

New Members Class- Announce (need sign ups this week so we can plan accordingly for supplies)

Immediately following our worship services on October 6th and 13th we will be having a class for anyone who is interested in more information about the Biblical practice of church membership and how to get involved as a member with Christ Church.  Whether you’ve been a long time church attender, or if Christ Church is the first church you have ever come to, our hope is that this would be a good next step in your faith journey.  Lunch is provided and child care is available upon request. You can sign up by filling out the sign up card in your program, and dropping it in the bible rack in front of you or the cloth basket at the Info Table. You can also register online at: christchurchsouthphilly.org/card/new-members-class/

Personal Reflection

Sharing the Lord’s Supper

Responding to God’s word in Song

  1. When You Move
  2. Search Me, Know Me


For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:14-19
