God is faithful! We welcome Tim Hancock and his wife JoAnne as the new senior pastor of Lake Gibson Church of the Nazarene! Tim has a long list of ministry experience and we know God is going to use him nightly in our next chapter! Please be praying them! His first official Sunday will be September 16, so plan to attend and invite neighbors and friends to this important Sunday!
Until then, Pastor Ernie Lewis, from Clearwater Nazarene, will be preaching in the morning services on August 19th, September 2nd, and 9th. I have the privilege of preaching August 26th in the morning services and preaching in the evening services on all those Sundays (except September 2nd, which we will not have an evening service due to the holiday weekend). God is indeed up to something special and I hope you feel his sovereign hand leading us through this time... what a future we have in Christ!
Our Sunday evening series "Back to School With Jesus" will journey through the Gospel of Matthew and take a look at how Jesus taught his followers through the basics of subjects we all learned and are learning in school. Jesus is not just our Lord, but also our Teacher!
August 19th - A New Word, A New People (Matthew 5)
August 26th - Lord Over The Elements (Matthew 8 + 14:13-21)
Septemer 9th - His-Story (Matthew 17)
Community Outreach Event | September 8th @9am
Help us pass out bags of blessing to our neighbors starting at 9am! The bags include a DVD of the Jesus Film, a tract on "How to Know God Personally", and a flyer on all things LGC... including the arrival of our new pastor on September 16th! We will canvas the neighborhoods in teams of three or more! Bring water and sunscreen.
Donations for the Padgett Elementary Food Drive are still going on, so bring in those goods!
We're excited to tell you that our website is getting a "lift"! In the next coming weeks we'll be introducing it!
