Posted in Fanning the Flame, Adult Ministry
Fanning the Flame is to Nappanee Missionary Church, what March Madness is to college basketball. This is a critical event for our church and we look forward to these four days every year. The adult track this year is shaping up to be “can’t miss” event. Pastor Dave has invited four of his friends, whom he refers to as “sages”, to teach us each night. These men are full of wisdom and they are looking forward to investing in our lives.
I recently asked Pastor Dave why Fanning the Flame was so important to our congregation. He says, “Everyone needs a fresh touch of God’s spirit and a big dose of God’s wisdom. Fanning the Flame gives us four great days of reigniting our fire for today’s challenges.” Block out your family calendar now and plan to join us March 15-18. Here is quick glimpse of the men who will be sharing with us.
