As Avenue Church studies the prayer that Jesus taught his followers to pray over this season of Lent, let us remember that Lord's Prayer is more than instruction - it's an invitation from Jesus to pray to his Father who is "Our Father". Therefore, I'd like to invite you to join me in praying the Lord's Prayer daily during this season of Lent. It could be the prayer you begin your day with as you anticipate what God is up to, or it could the prayer you close your day with as you reflect on what God has done. Or it could serve as both! The main thing is to pray this prayer, thoughtfully, attentively and consistently, allowing the Holy Spirit to direct your thoughts, recognizing the opportunity to pray each line more in depth as he guides you. Because we often pray alone but are never lonely in prayer, I invite you to let someone else know if you have taken up this prayer invitation so that you may encourage one another. Let's see what God has in store for us as we journey together with Jesus in prayer!

Avenue Church recognizes that many people have been hurt by or have become disillusioned by the church. Many now question its relevance in our society. Avenue Church is imagining what the church could actually be like if we took Jesus at his word. As such, we are seeking to be a community to belong in and a community to serve with.
