Jacky Connell-w50w50A Note From Your Pastor – February 10, 2017

Hello Eden Westside Church Family,

What another great Sunday God blessed us with! Sunday morning was absolutely INCREDIBLE. The music was beautiful. Hats off to all the people who work so hard on our Music and Media Ministry to make our worship a beautiful experience. I really thank God for those people that give beyond the call of duty. Sunday morning the altars filled up in both services as we concluded the series “Let Me Introduce You To Your Friend, The Holy Spirit”. We were in that, can you believe it, for five weeks. What a wonderful teaching series it was as God spoke to us through that. I hope that all of you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed it. I want to welcome, Shanda Adamson, our newest member. Sunday night was a GREAT night as well. For those that were here, you realize I was struggling with coughing and congestion. Thank you for praying for me. Sunday turned out to be a great day. Praise the Lord! Paul writes in 1 Corinthians that His strength is made perfect in our weakness. I want to thank God that Sunday, God’s strength was made perfect in my weakness. To God be the glory, great things He did on Sunday.

What a busy week we have had, as we celebrated the Home Going service for our dear friend and fellow servant, Ray Martin. Thank God for all of you that expressed your love and prayers to the family. It was such a beautiful picture once again of the body of Christ working together to show the heart of Jesus to a family that needed encouragement. We know where Brother Ray is and we will see him again real soon.

As we look forward, there are a lot of great things coming up at Eden Westside. Many, many, many special things. I encourage you to get involved and bring a friend with you. This month is “I Love Life Discovery!”. Life Discovery is where you build relationships and are able to grow spiritually together. We encourage you to bring a friend with you to Life Discovery. I know when we do that we will see Life Discovery growth, church growth, souls saved and lives changed. Let’s all pull together in accomplishing the goal of seeing our Life Discovery reach new heights. So I challenge you, if you are coming, remain faithful and bring a friend, if your are not coming, we encourage you to find a small group on Sunday morning and get plugged in. I believe God is ready and willing to bless us if we will put our hand to the plow.

COMING SOON, a new teaching series on Sunday mornings! Stay tuned for more information! You are not going to want to miss this NEW teaching series!

Be praying for me this week. God bless you and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

God is at work at Eden Westside Baptist Church.

God bless you,
Bro. Jacky
