“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:14 – 16, NIV)
“Prayer is the conversational part of the most important love relationship in our lives – with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” (Al VanderGriend)
At the Liberty Vineyard, we value prayer and reflection, and we seek to incorporate practices in our lives that allow us to live in the awareness of the presence of God in every moment, relationship, and situation. Here are some of the ways in which we live this out:
* we pray together each time we meet
* there are opportunities for personal ministry at each service
* monthly prayer newsletter to remind us to pray for one another and our community
* spiritual direction is available by trained spiritual directors (by appointment)
* regular prayer retreats
* contemplative photography days
We count it a privilege to pray for you, and to celebrate the good, holy, and beautiful work that God is doing in your life! We invite you to let us know how we can pray for you and how we can celebrate with you.

Ladies, we’d like to invite you to join us on Saturday, August 19th for our Liberty Vineyard daytime women’s prayer retreat ($10 includes lunch).
As in previous prayer retreats we’ve done, we want to grow in prayer and listening to what the Lord is speaking to us, using all manner of ways in which the Lord has endowed us . . . space, time, creativity, senses, gifts, gleanings from the body of Christ . . . we will begin at 9am and end at 4pm, and you are welcome to join us for all or part of it, as your schedule allows.
We aim to host two daytime women’s prayer retreats each year – Let us know if you’d like to be included on our email list to receive periodic invitations to women’s prayer retreats and Bible studies
