Some fathers are biological, some adoptive, and others are father figures. But there’s one thing we’re lacking: spiritual fathers. If you take a look around at the state of our world, it’s clear that we’re in desperate need of fathers in Christ—men who love God and His church. We need men who will boldly share the Father’s heart for His children and show us the way we should go. Join us for Dear Church, and hear from long-term fathers in the faith as they write their letter to the church in these current times.

Your Prayers Are Precious to God
by James Meeks
Prayer takes things out of our hands and puts them into the hands of God. It shows that we have faith in someone bigger than we are, that we are no longer leaning on our own understanding. If the devil wants to keep us from doing one thing, it’s praying. That’s how precious your prayers are to God! Every word you’ve ever prayed is in His hands. Your Father hears you. Don’t stop praying!

Social Justice vs. Biblical Justice
by Dennis Rouse
In the Bible, Jesus emphasizes that the number one way people will fall away from the faith is through deception. It can come in many packages, which is why it’s so important to know what the Word says to keep us anchored. Social justice is something we all tend to think of in a positive light, but we often don’t recognize that it isn’t rooted in God’s moral laws. When we agree with things that sound good but aren’t biblical, entire societies can be deceived. In part three of Dear Church, learn the differences between social and biblical justice and action steps to hold tightly to the truth of God’s Word!
