Special Guests in Worship (June Newsletter)
Who will join us in worship this month? Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett will preach God’s Word on June 23. Nate Burch Jr. will continue serving as our Interim Worship Leader. And we will continue welcoming both new guests and “regulars" in worship. The most important guest, however, is the Holy Spirit, who’s historic arrival (Acts 2:1-21) we will celebrate on Pentecost Sunday, June 9. Our celebration will also include a lunch that same day to honor Mrs. Paula Segrest for her 70th birthday and more than 18 years of ministry on staff with our church.
During the “Inheritance of God” worship series that follows Pentecost Sunday, we will discern how the presence of the Holy Spirit affects our life together (series schedule below). We need everyone's help discerning how to have transformational worship gatherings that produce spiritual fruit. Please join us by praying, completing the worship leader survey and engaging Council leaders in the conversation.
