September 18th-19th

The Holy Spirit and the Means of Grace

2 Peter 3:18, But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

What happens when we read the Bible, prayer, fast, worship, partake in sacrament, and grow together with other believers? Not just what are we doing, but what is God doing? We are communing with the Holy Spirit and He is pouring out God’s grace. We want you to gather with us Friday, September 18th starting at 6:30pm and Saturday the 19th from 9am-4pm for a time of worship and to learn about what the Holy Spirit does as we engage in what Wesley called “the means of grace.” It will also be a time to grow in the grace of God as we seek Him as one body over this weekend.

Our speaker for the weekend will be Dr. Scott Kisker from United Theological Seminary. His interests and research include Pietism, Wesleyan theology and practice, Methodism, Holiness and Pentecostal movements, discipleship, small groups, missional theology and evangelism.

Dr. Kisker is an elder in the Iowa Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Prior to coming to United, he was Professor of History of Christianity at Wesley Theological Seminary and has served as the director of the Charles Wesley Heritage Centre in Bristol, UK and as associate pastor for the American Protestant Church in Bonn, Germany. Dr. Kisker is one of the hosts of “Plain Truth: A Holy-Spirited Podcast,” available on iTunes, Player F.M. and other podcast providers. He is the author of The Band Meeting: Rediscovering Relational Discipleship in Transformational Community, co-authored with Kevin M. Watson, Longing for Spring: A New Vision for Wesleyan Community, co-authored with Elaine Heath, Mainline or Methodist? Recovering Our Evangelistic Mission and Foundation for Revival: Anthony Horneck, the Religious Societies, and the Rise of an Anglican Pietism.

Scott is married to Roberta Willison Kisker and they have five children: Maria, Susanna, Isaac, Tabitha and Naomi.
