The Oswego First United Methodist Church invites the community to a weekend of music, food and spiritual revival on June 6 at 7 p.m., June 7 at 7 p.m. and June 8 at 10 a.m.
There will be music by the FUMC Praise band, the FUMC Choir and refreshments.
There will a picnic following the Sunday service.
Come to one, two or all three parts of the event.
It will be a fun and informational time.
The speaker for the event will be Pastor Timothy Kriebel.
Pastor Kriebel is the senior pastor at the Bethlehem UMC near West Chester, Pa.
Following college, Pastor Kriebel graduated magna cum laude from Wesley Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree in 1981.
A year later, he was ordained an elder in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church.
He has served five churches during his career.
His favorite pastoral activity is teaching, his favorite fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) is joy, and his most fulfilling spiritual discipline is soaking prayer (ask him what it is!).
He likes sports but loves chocolate, he watches too much TV but also enjoys reading mystery, spy and thriller novels.
His most fervent prayer is that the Holy Spirit would bring revival to the church he serves and that it would then spread to other churches and throughout the larger communities surrounding them!
He will speak on the Holy Spirit.
Some of the topics to be covered include:
· A Biblical Overview of the Person of the Holy Spirit and the Purpose of the Holy Spirit
· The Fruit vs. the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
· The Wesleyan theology and experience of the Holy Spirit
· Baptism vs. the release of the Holy Spirit

The church is located at 7111 State Route 104 West across from Fruit Valley Vet Clinic.
