A Message from the R

We are well along on our teaming journey now and looking forward to the upcoming E-157, “Mighty to Save” weekend. Already we can sense that God is planning something special and we are excited to be His hands and feet. As part of our teaming, we’ve been studying the book, The Fruit of the Spirit, by Thomas Trask and Wayde Goodall. This book has centered us on becoming better servants by recognizing the fruits of the Holy Spirit as described in Galatians 5:22, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control”, and nurturing these fruits in our daily walk. The lessons have been many and I think all of us have felt the Spirit in our prayers and preparation. We covet your prayers and thank each of you for your support – it is only in community that we will truly experience the fullness that God has in store.

Grace & Peace,

Dave Downer
