AC2016 videos on spiritual revival available for local church use

movement003“Glory sightings” was the term used by Bishop Gary Mueller during the June 19-22 Arkansas Annual Conference gathering in Hot Springs to describe people and places where spiritual revival had been witnessed in Arkansas over the past year.

A series of six short videos, produced by the Center for Technology, were shown for the first time during the three-day event. Each highlighted a different glory sighting, from the community garden at Trumann UMC to a Sunday school class that realized they wanted to connect with one another and their neighbors in a more meaningful way.

The Trumann UMC video includes an interview with church’s pastor, the Rev. Jeff Weaver, who described the transformation adding a community garden has made in the life of the community as well as in the congregation. He shares that almost overnight, the city donated a plot of land, community and church members joined forces to till and plant the garden and that thousands of pounds of fresh produce has been donated to those in need. The garden has energized the church, brought inactive members back and added new faces to the congregation.

The entire series of videos is available in one album on the Arkansas Conference Vimeo channel.
