Jacky Connell-w50w50A Note From Your Pastor – July 6, 2017

Hello, Eden Westside Baptist Church Family,

Sunday was another GREAT day in the house of God. I was excited about the crowd that was here in both services on July 4th weekend. We want to welcome our new members, Matt and Brittany Washington. It is exciting to see how God is moving and working in our young adults and our church as a whole. To God be the glory! Great things he is doing!

Looking at where we are as a church, one of the things that I really want share with you is a reminder to each and every one of our members of how blessed we are. Please, please, please don’t take God’s blessings for granted! We are a blessed church! We are a church I truly believe that the hand of God is upon. Ladies and gentlemen, we all need to be focused and faithful and supportive of what God is doing in this great ministry. So as we think about where we are and where we are headed, I believe the best is in store for us. God has great plans for Eden Westside Baptist Church!

By the way, I am sure that you have noticed in the 8:10 AM service we are doing a lot of Southern Gospel music and people are absolutely, thoroughly enjoying that music style. Then at 11 AM we are doing a little more modern contemporary flavor of music. Do you know what is happening here at Eden Westside? People are staying for both sets of music. People are coming to the 8:10 AM service and then staying for the music in the 11 AM service. It is amazing to me how many people are enjoying both venues of music and WOW, I have been encouraged to see people plugging in to both services. Now mind you, they aren’t staying for the preaching of the second service but they are staying for the music. That is always exciting to see people enjoying both types of music here at Eden Westside. I want to say thank God for Bro. Randy and his leadership here. God is using him in a mighty, mighty way. If you get a chance to encourage Bro. Randy, let him know how much you appreciate all the music. It is hard work but he is working hard and being obedient to the Lord. Thank God, we are truly blessed to have leaders serving here and at the River Campus that provide for us great music, great leadership and great teaching. To God be the glory, great things He is doing!

Now, Sunday, July 16 is a BIG, BIG, BIG night here at Eden Westside Baptist Church. God has laid on my heart to declare the 3rd Sunday night of every month to be a prayer night here at the Eden Campus. We have one focus, we will be praying for the lost in our region. Can you imagine what God will do, as we all come together collectively lifting our voices in prayer for the lost of the region. Church, it is very possible we could see a mighty move of God. We could see revival and a great move of God in the harvest of souls. Join me on Sunday, July 16, 2016, at 6 PM in the Sanctuary for Harvest Prayer Time.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

God is at work at Eden Westside Baptist Church.

God bless you,
Bro. Jacky
