Morning Devotion
Each day, except Sunday, Pastor Jason shares a brief 4-7 minute scripture reading, reflection, response, and prayer. During the season of Lent, Pastor Jason is sharing the gospel of Mark, which will be read through by Easter. We encourage you to read this gospel. The associated devotion is posted to Prairie Avenue's Facebook page.
You may also access it on the church website: prairieavenuechristianchurch.org/daily-devotional. It is posted around 8:20 to 8:30 each morning.
Use Your Gifts by sharing five acts of love and kindness each week
Amanda Butterick is our first member to begin exploring Christian caregiving through Stephen minister training! This training is led by Pastor Jason, a trained Stephen Leader, and includes a variety of topics such as listening, Christian assertiveness, maintaining boundaries in caregiving, and grief.

The training lasts about an hour and a half, with a brief 15-minute break. If you would like to check out a session, you can! To qualify as a Stephen minister, you will need to complete all 18 sessions.
