Two Week Countdown!


Last winter I got to enjoy a wonderful time of Bible Study with some of the folks here at Laurel Hill.  Well, that time together has become a new book called More than Breathing: Pursuing Life in the Power of the Spirit. I received the “proof” copy of the book today and am giving it the final review before I say, “Yes!” to it being available for you.  We’re counting down the days but you don’t have to wait.  You can order your copy in advance.  Email me or call me and I’ll put a signed copy of the book in your hands as soon as it’s ready!  If I’ll see you at church this Sunday, just let me know you want a copy.

In More than Breathing, we follow the pathway of grace to reveal the way God transforms our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. Step by gracious step, More than Breathing describes how God wants to give you a life of joy that is appropriate, prayerful, backed up by God’s Spirit, and always at peace.

Do you need a way to think through and tackle the challenges of your life? Then discover a life that is More than Breathing. Do you need to change your way of doing things? Learn how to approach life as a new creation in Christ. Learn how to walk as a person of faith. Find out how Father Abraham can become your training partner in finding your second wind. Let the Apostle Paul mentor you in the way of love. Evaluate your progress in being led by the Spirit as you take the Love Test.

Discover the ancient paths of grace for yourself and share with others a life that is More than Breathing!

Jonathan Dow, Executive Director of Aldersgate Renewal says, “Thank you for sharing this resource. I appreciate the practicality of the book, the freedom to self-evaluate, and the invitation to grow in intimacy with God in the freedom of grace.”

About laurelhillumc

Laurel Hill United Methodist Church is rich in history as a church family committed to a life in Christ. We began in the heart of Varina almost 150 years ago; the church has grown through its existence as a church-hospital in the Civil War, as a circuit church, and survived a disastrous fire which destroyed the sanctuary about 50 years ago. Then, dedicated, Spirit-filled Christians worked hard together to build a new sanctuary. That hard work has continued with many new improvements including a new addition connecting the sanctuary and educational building, the installation of an elevator providing total accessibility throughout both buildings, remodeling the education building and the installation of 18 stained glass windows. Faithful clergy and laity ministering together have established a legacy of dedication and service which enables Laurel Hill to be a beacon of light in our community, in our world and to all who follow for generations to come. In response to the needs of the Varina community, Laurel Hill United Methodist Church also operates the Laurel Hill Weekday School. These programs are an active part of the life and ministry of Laurel Hill UMC. We accept the opportunity through our morning Preschool and After School child care to share our values of love, caring, cooperation and forgiveness. The Church and child care programs work together to enhance the spiritual, mental and physical growth of children in our community. Our worship services are held each Sunday with a contemporary service at 8:45am and a traditional service at 11:00am. Sunday School begins at 9:45am. Call our office (804) 795-2772 for Bible Study times and other ministry opportunities.
