Community spiritual event this weekend at Oswego First United Methodist Church

The Oswego First United Methodist Church invites the community to a weekend of music, food and spiritual revival at 7 p.m. Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7 and at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 8.

 

There will be music by the FUMC Praise band, the FUMC Choir and refreshments. There will a picnic following the Sunday service on June 8. Come to one, two or all three parts of the event.

 

The speaker for the event will be the Rev. Timothy Kriebel, senior pastor at the Bethlehem UMC near West Chester, PA. Following college, Pastor Tim graduated magna cum laude from Wesley Theological Seminary with a master of divinity degree in 1981; a year later he was ordained an elder in the Eastern PA Conference of the United Methodist Church.

 

Pastor Tim has served five churches during his career. His favorite pastoral activity is teaching, his favorite fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) is joy, and his most fulfilling spiritual discipline is soaking prayer (ask him what it is!).

 

He likes sports but loves chocolate, he watches too much TV but also enjoys reading mystery, spy and thriller novels. His most fervent prayer is that the Holy Spirit would bring revival to the church he serves and that it would then spread to other churches and throughout the larger communities surrounding them!

Pastor Tim will speak on the Holy Spirit. Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • A Biblical Overview of the Person of the Holy Spirit and the Purpose of the Holy Spirit
  • The Fruit vs. the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
  • The Wesleyan theology and experience of the Holy Spirit
  • Baptism vs. the release of the Holy Spirit

For more information, call the First United Methodist Church at 343-6335.

The church is located at 7111 State Route 104 West across from Fruit Valley Vet Clinic.

Veterans say ‘Thanks’

The members of the Fulton Veterans Council wish to thank the students and facilitators of  “LOCY” (Leadership Oswego County Youth) and the Junior High and GRB High school lacrosse team and the Fulton 13-14 indoor and the travel soccer team, their parents and community volunteers for helping us place the veteran flags at Mt. Adnah and St. Mary’s cemeteries.

We were impressed with their willingness to help and the job they did was outstanding.

We also wish to express our gratitude to Sugar Funeral Home and Sugar and Scanlon Funeral Home staff for helping with organizing the students and providing the pizza and water, and Mr. Wes Dean with Red Baron Pizza for opening his shop.

The Fulton Veterans Council is comprised of our community veterans’ organizations and veteran support groups, the Elks Lodge and the Knights of Columbus.

The week before, the LOCY students also treated many veterans and their guests to a wonderful program and picnic. We thank you for your interest and willingness to learn about our veterans’ experiences while serving in the military. Our veterans and their guests enjoyed this very much.

We are proud of all of the students who chose to include our veterans in their programs and we wish you success in the future.

The Fulton Veterans Council
