What an awesome time we had this past weekend as we came together for our Renewal Weekend. We were trusting God for a great time of renewal and refreshing and a fresh encounter with God. God blessed us with beautiful weather and great attendance, and it was a very special time in the life of our church.
I enjoyed bringing the message that God had for us on Sunday morning about Elijah passing the mantle of leadership to Elisha. We have some wonderful adult leaders in our church; they have a great love for the church and wisdom to share with the younger adults who are emerging as the next generation leaders. We have a bright future here at Wilmer, and our older adults got to pray with and affirm the spiritual gifts of our young adults on Sunday night.
It was a very moving service Sunday evening, as we came together to reflect on the weekend and testify of God’s grace upon us. Renewal Weekend was a special time that will be remembered for the rest of our lives, and we trust God that the fresh touch we received from this encounter will continue to bear fruit for generations to come.
