Jacky Connell-w50w50A Note From Your Pastor – January 12, 2017

Hello Eden Westside Church Family,

Well, Christmas is behind us, the freeze is over and football has come to a close. Now we are ready to move forward. Last Sunday was an interesting Sunday as the frigid temperatures stagnated a lot of things in this area. I thank God for the travel graces He gave me and Denise to get here. As a result we were able to have both morning services and the evening services. Wouldn’t you know it, we were able have the first service and guess what, Anthony “Tony” Bunt gave his life to Jesus and joined our fellowship in the first morning service. Isn’t God WONDERFUL! Thank God for Tony’s decision to come into the family of God here at Eden Westside Baptist Church.

Sunday night, we had an INCREDIBLE night. Five adults were baptized! Then we had nine couples dedicate their children to the Lord.

We started the week on Tuesday and I am telling you, there were so many things going on here Tuesday and Tuesday night, the parking lot was packed. Our Upward ministry had basketball practice and games going on in the gym. Crossroads Community home school group was meeting in the fellowship hall and our ladies Bible study launched in Cornerstone Cafe. Ladies Bible study, WOW, 41 ladies gathered together on Tuesday night to commit to a chronological Bible study for the next 14 weeks. It is AMAZING! I know all the ladies are excited to study God’s word together.

Don’t forget Sunday is right around the corner. I am looking forward to seeing you and meeting your new friend. We are in a teaching series “Let Me Introduce You To Your Friend, The Holy Spirit”. This will be our second message. I am so looking forward to this Sunday, I believe we are going to be blessed as we study God’s word together.

Don’t forget Sunday night! What a wonderful time of worship we are going to have! We are excited about some adjustments that we are making! We hope and pray you will join us as we assemble together on Sunday nights to worship and learn together. We look forward to seeing you.
God is so good to us. 2017, here we come! Let’s come back and come closer!

God is at work at Eden Westside Baptist Church.

God bless you,
Bro. Jacky
