UMCOR Sunday– (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) is March 11, 2018. Gifts to UMCOR Sunday lay the foundation for all United Methodist Committee on Relief work by covering the costs of doing business. This means all contributions designated to specific programs can go 100% to those programs because UMCOR’s basic expenses are covered.
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
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!)
Prayer Circle - will meet TODAY following Worship and will continue each Sunday. Please see Dianne Bayley-Clark for more information.
Draw the Circle– by Mark Batterson continues throughout Lent! I invite you to join Dave and me in prayer for the forty days. You are 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!
