How the Holy Spirit Works

How the Holy Spirit Works
We look forward to having you join with others from our church family this Sunday morning as together we watch the 9:30 live stream service.  Every week – and this past week was no exception- we hear from some of you who relay to us how much you are appreciating the live stream services at this time.  Thanks for joining us!
This Sunday, Pastor Ray concludes his 3-week series called Holy Spirit:  Here and Now.  We’ve been looking at how the Holy Spirit works, and this week we’ll look at how:
  1.  The Holy Spirit leads us into the desert.  This desert is not a dry, arid place, but a time and a place of solitude.  It’s where the Holy Spirit leads us into a deeper encounter between God and ourselves.
  2. The Holy Spirit engages with us in our suffering and the suffering of others.  In the same way that Jesus – filled with the Spirit – engaged with the suffering of the world, the Holy Spirit draws you and me into opportunities to care for and minister to others in their pain.
Our main Scripture text will be Luke 3:21-4:19…so have God’s Word ready come 9:30 Sunday morning and we’ll see what He has for us!

Prior to the message, we will all come before God with songs of praise and worship!
All of my life, in every season, You are still God…I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship.
You are: Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the Darkness…My God, that is who You are.
This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise…the morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
Spirit, lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior.
As a staff, we are so encouraged to know that every Sunday morning as the live stream service is taking place here at the church, that hundreds of you are joining us to worship Jesus and learn from Him!  And so we look forward to gathering with you again this Sunday as we look to see what God wants to teach us about the work of His Spirit.
