When it comes to encouragement it’s hard to know where to start. What are we to be like? What are we to do?
This Sunday I will teach about four things the Holy Spirit does through people He fills.
These four things are so easy to spot and put into practice you will be able to start encouraging immediately.
Please plan to be present since being beside others is a big part of practicing.
Bring some friends. I promise it will be encouraging!
Can’t wait to see you.
