Welcome to the first issue of The Enlightener, a periodic newsletter from the International Assembly of God (IAG), Michigan. Here, you'll find news and information about the IAG church and our various programs, including mission work, member-news, prayer requests and much more. The November 2019 issue of The Enlightener features articles on various events, including the youth team’s mission trip to New York and church retreat.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving
It’s the season of gratitude, finally. Time to pause and give thanks for all the good things in life. It’s also the season of crowded parking lots, long shopping lines and high stress levels, if you have kids. If only we could slow down and take a look around. There’s a chance we might find someone who needs our help, who is seeking a word of prayer, encouragement or even just a smile.
More than the holiday tradition itself, can we allow ourselves to be more mindful of God’s presence in our lives and be intentional in showing the love of Jesus to our friends and families? Through this newsletter, we aim to do just that—be intentional in reaching out and empowering our church community to continue their walk with God.
We hope you’ll enjoy reading the first issue of The Enlightener as much as we did creating it. A huge THANK YOU to all who contributed to this newsletter. Our next issue will have more updates and content. You can expect to find fresh perspectives on God’s word that’ll inspire you to live an enlightened life. Continue to subscribe here.
