This Sunday, May 20
Seeking the Higher Gifts: 
What is Prophecy and How Can We Grow in this Gifting?

The Lord has been moving in some wonderful ways here at St. Giles of late. But we believe he has more for us - more of the Spirit's presence and power, and more opportunities to serve in the full gifting that comes with the Holy Spirit.
In fact, Paul encourages us to "seek the higher gifts,...especially that you may prophesy."  (1 Cor. 12:31, 14:1) Could we learn how we can grow in our confidence to hear from the Lord, and then to speak his words into various ministry situations and prayers? We believe we can! And that will be our pursuit at a seminar, here at  St. Giles on:

Saturday, May 19,  9:30 AM-12:30 PM  

All are welcome, as Keith leads us in this quest for ever more effective ministry in the Spirit's power.

Clothes Drive for Kazakhstan -- A Special May Project
May promises to bring flowers and the women of St.Giles hope May will also bring clothes(old or new) for Vicki Charbonneau's orphanage. Vicki will be here in early summer, and she hopes to take a lot of clothes back with her when she returns to the orphanage.The clothes needed are sizes 1-14. Please bring only CLEAN, FOLDED CLOTHING IN GOOD CONDITION.  A box is outside the office to place the clothes throughout the month of May. You can be a blessing and be blessed by helping with this worthwhile project, contact Karen Wild. 

Saving Our Youth is looking for volunteers to be Champions for our next Jobs for Life Class in June

We just graduated a class of 11 on April 17 and 9 are already employed. Lives are being transformed. Giving people food and clothes is great, but helping them become employed not only gives them the abiity to purchase those things on their own, but adds a sense of accomplishment. And with Jobs for LIfe, a Christian-based program, the students hear what it means to follow Jesus in the workplace.

We're asking for a 5-week commitment,  2 days a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:30-10:30 AM. 
For more information call Jo White (804) 937-6836.
