Potter coming to Mount Prospect

September 1st, 2012
David Engesath, of Master Potter Ministries
Where: Bible Baptist Church, 123 Busse S. Road, Mt. Prospect
When: September 5-9 with services at 7:00 p.m. each night.
David is a Master Potter that brings the potter’s house to churches and visually explains the 8 stage process of forming clay.  He forms clay vessels on the potter’s wheel while preaching .This parallels the 8 stage sanctification process of the believer found in II Peter 1:5-7.  Understanding this process will encourage Christians to yield, surrender and serve.  This is for both adults and children.
