Greater Things - WHY?
This Sunday begins a new 4-week series here at Gaylord E-Free Church that just may be the 4 most important Sundays in the history of our church. Back in February our Elder Board formed a Vision Task Force and charged them with answering the questions, "How can E-Free Church meet as many people as possible over the next 3 years and move them to where God wants them to be?" This Vision Plan for 2013-2015 was then presented to our church Elder Board back in August where it was unanimously approved.
Beginning this Sunday we will betaking the next four Sundays to present this 3-Year Vision Plan to our entire church family in a message series that we are calling "Greater Things" based on John 14:1-14. It all begins this Sunday as we answer the question, "WHY do we have a 3-year Vision Plan?" This Sunday we will see from the opening verses of John 14 that this Vision Plan for the next three years is all about a PEACE, a PLACE, a PROMISE, and a PERSON!
Both of our Contemporary Services this Sunday morning (9:00 and 10:30) will begin in a very unique way. We are going to create the sights, sounds and smells of a big football game. You will hear the sound of the marching band drum corp! You will smell the aroma of freshly popped popcorn! You will even get to enter the locker room where you will see the head coach as he introduces the game plan to the team in his pre-game pep talk!
But that's just the beginning of things. The morning will also include great worship led by Samantha Dunn; a motivating video encouraging all of us to be part of this year's Bountiful Harvest as we partner with many other local church to feed thousands of people this Thanksgiving; and a special "Greater Things" video testimony of a life that has been changed through the ministry of our church.
Our Classic Serviced will also be taking place this Sunday at 9am. I will be leading the worship through singing this Sunday morning and we will be showing both of the above mentioned videos as well. As a special treat, there will also be a special instrumental group playing special music which will also include a "Dixie Land" feel to it.
It is going to a great day this Sunday at Gaylord E-Free as we "kick-off" our 4-week "Greater Things" vision series. Join us as we believe God to do GREATER THINGS over the next 3-years!
