This Sunday here at the Gaylord Evangelical Free Church (GEFC) we will be continuing our study through the book of Jonah as we finish chapter one. We will see Jonah as a man on the run from God and we will notice several principles about what life is like when we are on the run from God, be it one area of our lives or every area of our life. One of the main principles we will see is that when we run from God, He will relentlessly pursue us. That's how much He loves us.
Our contemporary service will start with an introduction of a new missionary couple to GEFC. Along with some great worship music, we will also have some original aspects to our service including our Worship Director, Joshua Rupp's, own rendition of the "Do-Run-Run" song and a special video made by two of our college students called, "Great Rap Wars in Biblical History" featuring Jonah versus God. On a side not, the lyrics to this original rap style video was actually written by a grandma in our church! The message will end with a special song entitled, "You Won't Relent." It is going to be a great service.
Our traditional service will include, hymns, a prayer time, a responsive reading, Scripture reading and a missionary report. Those attending the traditional service will them move down to the Gospel Center for the message and closing part of our contemporary service.
We look forward to seeing you at GEFC this Sunday. Both the contemporary and traditional services will begin at 9:30am. If you can't be with us, be sure to listen to the audio of the message on-line next week through our church website or through iTunes. The church website is www.gaylordefree.org.
