Wed lunch mtg W2033, Sat picnic, CCIH & GMHC conferences, and more!

Dear ones,

As Solomon begins his prayer at the consecration of the temple in Jerusalem, he asks: But will God indeed dwell with man on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you, how much less this house that I have built! (2 Chron 6:18) Isn't it amazing that God DOES dwell with us (Jesus our Emmanuel), and even IN us through the Holy Spirit? We pray this morning that you rest in wonder of how big and great our God is - and that the Spirit fills you with power to pursue the work that he has set before you. Be of good courage!

We will meet tomorrow (Wed) at lunchtime (12:15pm) in Room W2033 - come join us for fellowship and prayer! More announcements below!
