Message
Praying Up a Storm
Acts 2.1-41 (selected)

Where is the power of the Gospel?  We don’t need more
methods and techniques.  No!  We need the Lord Him
self to come down and lift us up.  Nothing else will do.
–Dr. Michael L. Brown

and
Saturday, June 16th 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

Everyone wants and needs to be loved because the God who is love made us for it. Just as our body never grows out of the need for food, water, rest and exercise, our soul never grows out of the need to be loved. God says through King David: “My love is better than life . . . and it satisfies your soul as with the richest of foods” (Ps. 63:3, 5). Join us for the First Loved to Love seminar and experience God love you in a deep, personal and soul-satisfying way.
Due to the structure of the seminar we needed to limit registration.
There are currently 28 spots open. To reserve yours, please visit:
