Come Holy Spirit

Beginning on March 25 and continuing the last Tuesday of each month, Immanuel Anglican in Destin will host a new time with the Holy Spirit from 6:30-8:30 p.m. — a time to worship in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:24) There will be informal teachings and sharing on the release of the Spirit and how He is moving among His people. We are excited and expectant to see how the Spirit will move among us as we come together in unity and harmony with Him and one another. 

As the banner in the sanctuary says, we are coming together “expecting miracles” to happen. It is our prayer that all will come and see what God will be doing among His people. The praise band will lead us in worship and we have a great team of facilitators to lead us.

Childcare will be provided. As a kick off to the first evening, all are invited to bring a covered dish to share for dinner at 5:30 p.m. Immanuel is at 250 Indian Bayou Trail in Destin. Call 837-6324 or email Immanuel@gnt.net for more information.
