Holy Spirit Weekend with the NE Alliance Saturday, Nov. 11 – 9 – 5 pm, Lowell, MA
“As a regional church, we need to have a proper instrument to introduce people into a personal relationship with the third Person of the Trinity in a Biblical way.” Pastor Roberto Miranda of Lion of Judah Church in Boston said this in a recent invitation to the Holy Spirit Weekend, scheduled for Saturdy Nov. 11. The Holy Spirit Weekend is designed precisely for that purpose. It will be an opportunity for churches and ministries to bring believers into an encounter and baptism of the Holy Spirit, to be ministered to, and released to engage in the life-long journey of growing in the Spirit filled life. It also will serve to equip local churches with Biblical teaching and a scriptural model. The cost is $10 in advance, $15 at the door (includes lunch, online registration coming soon!). It will be held at CCF Ministries of Lowell, 105 Princeton Blvd. Lowell, MA 01851. Visit newenglandalliance.net/holy-spirit-weekend for more information.
