Summit Woods Baptist Church: Lee's Summit, MO > Mid-Service Comments
February 14, 2017 by Brett Harris Please find below Brett Harris' notes from the Mid-service comments this past Sunday.

Books Available at Event While Supplies Last This Event is Free and Open to the Public Registration Encouraged, but Not Required (scroll down) Childcare NOT Available PRE-REGISTER BELOW We were created to know and enjoy God, and to depend on Him for our every need. Sadly, though, we often look to the things of this world to satisfy us, and we are constantly tempted to rely on ourselves rather than on God’s wisdom and power In Secret Church 19, we’ll see that all of Scripture invites us to pursue God, and we’ll see how crucial the role of prayer and fasting is in this pursuit.
