PASTOR’S PERSPECTIVE Accelerated Shift

Spirit Church is in ‘high gear.’ God has blessed us with a season of accelerated shift. We are moving with great speed towards our purpose of connecting lives to the love, joy, and peace of Jesus Christ. During the summer, we will shift into a schedule that we believe will help us continue reaching people for Christ. On Sunday mornings, we will preach the Word! On Wednesday evenings, we will pray. New small groups will form for discipleship and fellowship. Of course, we will reach out to our community through the ‘Day of Hope!’ Fasten your seatbelts. This is going to be a great summer. In His Steps,

Dr. Darryl & Faith Wootton


SUMMER 2014 WORSHIP EXPERIENCES During the summer months, we will “shift” our Sunday worship experience times to 9:30 & 11am. As we have much more room in the Spirit Center, this will allow us to grow and give some of our leaders a much deserved rest from serving 3 times in a row on Sunday morning.

SMALL GROUPS Many have expressed their desire to continue in small groups during the summer. We want to accomodate this proven method of discipleship and fellowship. If you would like to lead a small group or be involved in a small group, join us on Sunday evening, June 1st for information and training. These groups will meet weekly throughout the summer. Bible-based, sermon-centered curriculum will be provided.

PRAYER EXPERIENCE

During the summer months, we will “shift” our prayer focus from Wednesday mornings to Wednesday evenings. This will be the most important experience of the week. Block out one hour of your week each Wednesday evening and experience the power of God. Could you not tarry just one hour?
