50 Day Spiritual Adventure

Each fall, my pastor (Trinity United Methodist, Albia, Iowa Trinity's website) organizes a 50 Day Spiritual Adventure.  There are special services—including guest speakers, and small groups start.  There is also a Scripture reading calendar starting September 1 and ending on October 20.  It’s a time to change our focus from the busy summer months.  And it’s a time for some to get back in to spending time in the Holy Bible.  Or for some, it might be the first time they've really gotten into the Word.  Whatever the case may be, it’s a time of spiritual renewal.  Speaking for myself, I've learned and grown from these special experiences. 

My plan is to share a bit about what’s going on; however, my focus will be on the Scriptures. (To be addressed in future posts…stay tuned.)  Services and special events (unless otherwise indicated) are at: at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1117 Benton Avenue East, Albia, Iowa. All are welcome!

Special services:
Enoch Fernando: Sunday, September 22, 2013 (both worship services 8:30 am and 10:50 am)
            Enoch uses the piano as his pulpit.  He travels the world sharing his gift of music, along with words of inspiration and encouragement.

David Hunter: Sunday, September 29-October 2, 2013, 7 pm:
David Hunter will be at Trinity sharing his knowledge.  It will be a time of powerful prayer, teaching, healing, and Holy Spirit impartations.  David has an amazing testimony.  God is using him mightily.   

Community Youth Rally with Joel Johnson and Christian band “We are Leo”: Saturday, October 12, 2013 held in the high school gym
            Joel will be speaking Sunday morning at both services at Trinity.

Vince Homan: Sunday, October 27, 7:00-8:30pm
Vince will be speaking on grief in losing a loved one.  He has written a book A Foot in Two Worlds: Facing Life After Tragic Losses.

Small groups will be starting in September, using the book, Devotional Life in the Wesleyan Tradition by Steve Harper.  There are a variety of days, times, locations, and host/leaders to choose from.  (I’ve already have started working my way through the book and find it to be interesting and informing.)

Everyone is welcome!  Hope to see you there!
