Hello Redeemer Family!

Here are some things I want to share with you.

ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN GREEN LAKE, WISCONSIN, JUNE 23-27: Join Linda and me, our worship team, and others for six days together at the beautiful Green Lake Conference Center. Our speakers include Mike Hutchings of Global Awakening, and Larry Sparks who is editor of Destiny Image Publishing and was our main speaker at our Women's Conference. Mike is especially called to healing of PTSD. Plus, I will be one of the speakers (Thursday evening), and Tim Curry and I will present workshops as well.

KELLIE ROBINSON TEACHES ON "THE HEART AND PRACTICE OF PROPHECY": Thursday, June 6th + Thursday, June 13th, 6:30 PM. “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” -1 Cor. 14:1 ESV.  What is prophecy? Why do we desire it? And how do we do it? We’ll cover these questions, expose the needless fear surrounding prophecy and explore some easy ways to practice. Bring your questions and a notebook and a pen for exercises.

SPAGHETTI DINNER FUNDRAISER at REDEEMER, SUNDAY, JUNE 9, 1 PM: Francesca Ansel writes: "Hi Everybody! I am doing a spaghetti dinner fundraiser to raise money for my year at Bethel! I am asking for a donation of $5 or higher in exchange for a dinner ticket. During the dinner I will be selling my art and sharing more information about my trip. I can’t wait to hangout with everyone and share what God has been doing in my life. So come enjoy some food and bring a friend!! 

INVEST IN YOUR MARRIAGE! Linda and I invite Redeemer marital couples to invest in their marriages this spring and summer.
