Jacky Connell-w50w50A Note From Your Pastor – March 16, 2017

Hello Eden Westside Church Family,

What an AWESOME God we serve! It is such a privilege to be part of the family of God. I hope and pray that you are involved in all the great things that God is doing right here at Eden Westside. There are so many positive things going on that this Note From The Pastor does not have room enough to share all the amazing things that God is doing. I guess you can tell how excited I am about what the Lord is up to here at Eden Westside.

Last Sunday was a WONDERFUL day, we had so many new people coming in. We want to welcome Willie Strickland, Nieyachia Jones, Addison Pyron and Judy Smith into our church family. Then, I am sounding like a broken record, Sunday night was PHENOMINAL! God just moved in such a special way Sunday night. To God be the glory, great things He is doing at both the Eden Campus and the River Campus. We are growing and people are excited.

In January, I wrote to all our members and asked everyone to “come back and come closer” this year. I am so encouraged right now because so many of our church family are coming back and digging in. We are seeing family after family returning back home to our Eden Westside church family. How EXCITING is that! We love our church family and it is always great to have those that have been away for a while to come back and rejoin with us here at Eden Westside.

Our EXCITING 2017 Upward Soccer season is here! I want to say praise the Lord for Sherry and all the team leaders that are working so hard to make Upward Soccer a great ministry here at Eden Westside. At this moment, we have 107 kids enrolled at Upward Soccer. WOW! WOW! WOW! That is so wonderful! We are excited about what God is doing through our Recreation Ministry.

I will be starting a NEW teaching series next Sunday, March 26, “The Power of His Resurrection”. I will be teaching through the series for the next four Sundays in preparation for Easter. I am so excited about this season that we are about to go into and I know you are as well. This is a great time for you to invite people to come visit with us. We hope and pray that you will be doing that.

I look forward to seeing you and to meeting the new friend you bring with you this Sunday!

God is at work at Eden Westside Baptist Church.

God bless you,
Bro. Jacky
