Recently, the Hispanic Church in Kelso-Longview, WA. held a series of evangelistic meetings with the purpose to seek spiritual motivation. The week of evangelistic meetings was held with the sole purpose to establish a foundation of what our roadmap will be for the next several months.
These meetings were held in June, but for these meetings to take place we had a “preparation period” which included worships and meetings that made our event result in a tremendous blessing. This “preparation period” began about three weeks prior to the event with our Kelso Spanish members who met in 6 different locations in order to plan and get ready.
Thanks to our God, we had a good attendance with an average of 35-40 people per night, including children. Children were cared for by church leaders from Kelso-Longview and Woodland Spanish Churches. In total for children and music praises we had 16 volunteers.
“It’s Time to Revive” A call to members and their guests to reflect on the time we live…Christ is coming soon!
For the Spanish Church in Kelso-Longview, this was an opportunity to renew our vows with the Lord, since at the end of the campaign we celebrated a Communion Service and Lord’s Supper. For our closing on Sabbath, we had a beautiful feast and ended with two baptisms for the glory of God.
