For several weeks now, God has put it in my heart to lead the church in a Renewal Weekend. One of the greatest spiritual experiences of my life happened in a renewal weekend in our church here at Wilmer 37 years ago. That weekend, in June of 1980, was used of God to strengthen the fellowship of our church for decades to come. Those who are still in our church could testify to how the Holy Spirit moved on our church and in our lives that awesome weekend.
I am praying and trusting God that the wonderful reality of His presence will be our experience this Renewal Weekend. The weekend will begin on Friday evening March 31st and continue throughout the weekend of April 1st and 2nd. We are asking all of our church members and families to make the commitment to give this weekend to the Lord. When we sacrifice to be with Him and truly desire to have Him touch our lives and our church, then we can anticipate that God will move in His time and in a wonderful way. God tells us that when we draw close to Him, He will draw close to us.
A word of warning! Satan, our adversary, does not want you or your family to be involved in this weekend. He understands the potential this weekend has to impact the lives of our church family for decades to come. He will attempt to put obstacles in your path to keep you and your family from the spiritual experience Renewal Weekend holds for you. I pray you will recognize his attempts to hinder your involvement and that you will triumph over these obstacles and have a mountain-top experience with God. It’s going to be great, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us during this weekend. Be in prayer for the weekend, be part of the weekend, and be prepared for an awesome time shared with God and the church family.
