August 17th, 7 - 8:30 pm, Upper Room Night
The upper room is a place where Jesus showed His disciples His love. On the eve of Passover, he washed their feet, broke bread with them, and prepared them for the days ahead. After His resurrection, He met them there. And on Pentecost, as they prayed, He sent them the “Promise of the Father”—the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Upper Room Night is a time set aside for fellowship with Jesus, teaching in an interactive setting, and receiving and expressing the Holy Spirit. Both adults and students, church members and guests, are welcome. Join us and let Jesus reveal His love to you, through the Holy Spirit!
