Klamath Falls Series Brings In New Members
Eighteen new members made decisions to follow Jesus and join with the church, and several others are studying, following the Life Discovery evangelistic series held at the Klamath Falls (Ore.) Church from Oct. 24 through Dec. 6, 2003.
After many months of planning, the series began under the direction of Jim Reinking, a pastor from Spokane, Wash., who worked with local pastors Jim Osborne and David Smith.
Prior to the meetings, a prayer ministries group met weekly to pray for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of the church members, non-members attending Sabbath School and church, and the community. Bible studies were given, and a stop-smoking program was offered.
During the series, visitation teams called on those attending. Music for the meetings, coordinated by Shirley Gingery, was provided by church members. Guest artist Janice Renck presented a special weekend concert. Fellowship meals and Saturday evening refreshments offered a chance for people to get better acquainted.
A special pastor’s class has been implemented to help nurture those new to the Adventist faith.
