"HEART TO HEART"

Sermons from the Psalms • Summer 2017 • Pastor Peter Nelson

How well do you know God?  The Psalms call us into the Lord’s very presence.  And they encourage us to speak openly and honestly with God—all your fears and hopes and longings and questions; all your pain and all your joy:  heart to heart. This summer we’ll plumb the depths of these rich worship songs of Scripture!  Each week we’ll explore the stories behind the songs, pray in response to Scripture, and commit a verse to memory (see below for the Bible Memory Challenge, or click HERE to download the verses).  Here is the schedule:
