Pastors Corner: Holy Spirit continues to be hard at work in our lives

By Stephen HammondJune 8, 2013 

The temperatures are getting higher and the Holy Spirit is going deeper in his work in our lives.

I am continually amazed lately at the depth of the work the God is doing in us and, in turn, through us into our community. What a faithful God we serve who loves us and knows exactly what we need. He cares for us so much that He desires to give us His very best.

His best often comes at a high price, but if we are willing to pay the price, He will do His best work in us. Sometimes it feels like we have to be stripped of everything in our lives, but what is happening in reality is that He is preparing us to receive His very best.

I believe that we are primed and ready for revival. Starting this Sunday, we will be in revival with Rev. Terry and Pam Sisney. I am looking forward to a great move of God. I encourage everyone to join with me in prayer for our revival and come ready to church on Sunday and receive a powerful word from God.

We invite everyone to come to revival with us at Bethel Community Church this Sunday at 10:15 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Monday through Wednesday at 7 p.m. God has something special for us so that we can truly win our city and reach our world for Christ.

If you are interested in working in our youth camps or sending kids to our youth camps, please let me know. It is not too late to get our applications in. It does not cost anything to work at camp and the campers only cost $150 per camper. Camps are the following dates: Junior Camp - ages 7-11 is July 15-19. High School Camp is July 19-23 and Junior High Camp is July 23-27. Camps are held at our districts Campgrounds in Posey, Ca.

God Bless and I hope to see you in church on Sunday.
