Summer Sermon and Lecture Series 2019

Summer Series


Northside Drive Baptist Summer Series, June 2 - August 25, Fellowship Hall, 3100 Northside Drive, Atlanta 30305, during the Sunday School hour, 10 a.m. The Adult Education Ministry Team has planned a great series called Spiritual Biographies. "This summer the focus of our Church School series will be on the spiritual life stories of individuals of faith. Men and women like Dorothy Day, Elie Wiesel, Clarence Jordan, Addie Davis, and others who have lived lives of deep faith and commitment, and who have struggled with their own self-understanding and understanding God. When we hear another person’s spiritual life story, we are able to draw connections to our own spiritual formation."

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
