When God’s Spirit Moves – Six-Session for Lent – Jim Cymbala explores the works of the Holy Spirit to bring a fresh sense of God’s power to the church and our lives.
What happens when the Holy Spirit moves powerfully within a church? Through this six-session study you will learn how:
- To make room for the Spirit’s action in your life and in your church
- God wants to work through your gifts and talents to enable you to do what only he can do
- To listen or the voice of the Spirit in prayer and how to apply God’s Word to your life
- The Spirit can bring healing to your body, your emotions, and your relationships; how a life lived in the presence of the Spirit can transform the church and the world
Draw the Circle– I invite you to join Dave and I in prayer for the forty days of Lent. I would ask that you would purchase one book, Draw the Circle, by Mark Batterson. You can purchase it online or Pastor will get you a copy. You will be asked to read one chapter a day, about three pages, but you will want to read more. It will be a blessing for you to start or end your day this way. Find out how circling prayer can enhance your life and grow our church. If you only take on one discipline this Lent have it be this! Sign up today to take on this challenge with us!
God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think! Ephes 3:20
Our church can become a place where people regularly experience God’s presence and God’s power. (but only if you share it!)
