I hope you will join our brothers and sisters in the district at our Life in the Spirit Seminar on Friday evening and Saturday, September 20 and 21, 2019 at the Bellevue Heights UMC. The cost is $20, but only $15 if you register and send your check by August 20.
A devotional guide is offered for every day from August 2 through September 20 to help you get ready for the Life in the Spirit event. You may download it and refer to it every day from now until September 20 or visit the website, click on About, then Districts and go to the Crossroads District calendar.
The Life in the Spirit Event is an event designed to impart information regarding the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, and to lead the participants into the fullness of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
However, it is not just an event about the Holy Spirit. It is an event with the Holy Spirit where the Spirit comes not just as an observer, but as an active participant.
The material is designed to break down barriers, dispel myths and fears, and create a hunger for the fruit and gifts of God’s Spirit to be manifested in a new and vital way in the life of the believer and in the life of the church.
Our prayer is that the team members will be “living epistles” as they teach and share.
I’m looking forward to seeing you at the seminar. Registration Form here.
Grace and peace!
Nola Anderson
