A Special Morning!



Here is a photo of the prayer of dedication at my installation service that was held last Sunday here at the Gaylord E-Free Church in Gaylord, Michigan. It was taken by our Director of Worship with his camera phone. Though you can't see them all in the picture, all of the Elders and Ministry Staff laid their hands on us, including two representatives from the Great Lakes District of the Evangelical Free Churches of America along with my mentor, Pastor Steve Peters (holding the mic). At the same time the entire church family stretched out their hands toward us in a sign of unity. It was an amazing service - and probably the only installation service in the history of Christendom that included the word "ovulation" being used from the pulpit!! If that doesn't make you want to go on-line and listen to the service recording, nothing will! You can do so through our church website (link below). A special thank you to all who participated and to this amazing church family who have welcomed Laura and myself with open arms.

Pastor Scott said...

Hi Jacob. I will send an email right now looking into this. I bet you can't guess which speaker used the word "ovulation"!!!!

Pastor Scott said...

It's all fixed, Jacob. Thanks!

Scott,

Thanks, I will check it out...and it may be the same pastor that said that Jesus got off his donkey's ass a few weeks ago...oh the wonders of public speaking...

Pastor Scott said...

BINGO, Jacob! I love that guy!

Craig said...

Is it possible to listen via the iPhone? Can't seem to get it to work.
Thanks,
Craig

Scott, glad that Steve Peters had a great impact on your life. He was also a great influence on my life. He's a great man.

Pastor Scott said...

Hi Craig. I'm not sure the problem. I just went to the church website on my computer and the audio recording of the service played fine. I do beleive that starting with this Sunday's service that the audio of the message will be available through itunes. Blessings to you brother!

Pastor Scott said...

Amen, Felicia! That he is! Thanks for reading and commenting. Blessings!

Pastor Scott said...

Jacob, Craig and others - all of our past and future sermons are now available as podcasts on iTunes. Simply go to iTunes and put "Gaylord E-Free: into the search engine.

Craig said...

Great! I'll check it out on iTunes.

Craig said...

iTunes worked great! I was blown away as I listened to the service last Sunday. What godly leadership and what a blessing to hear how God was at work behind the scenes directing His plans. I'm so encouraged by how the Lord has worked in your life. It gives me hope for mine. Thanks for being my Pastor. May God bless your ministry...I know He will!

I tried to get this same message in itunes and it is not loading all the other messages loaded fine?

Pastor Scott said...

Thanks so much, Craig. Blessings to you and your family!

Pastor Scott said...

Not sure, Kim! I guess just keep trying! Or better yet - you and Todd take a trip up here and I will preach the message to just the two of you!
