This Sunday here at Gaylord E-Free we will continue our series, “Mythbusters: Are Ghosts Real” by looking at one of the most intriguing stories in the Old Testament that involves a king, a witch, and a ghost. I would encourage you to read 1 Samuel 28 before you come to church this Sunday. We will be spending the next two Sundays studying this story and seeing if we can determine what exactly happened that day in the town of Endor. You have four opportunities to join us this Sunday:
Classic Worship Service (9am in the Chapel)
Contemporary Worship Service (9am in the Gospel Center)
Contemporary Worship Service (10:30am in the Gospel Center)
Live Radio Broadcast on The Eagle 101.5 FM (9am)
God has certainly been blessing us as a church and we have much to be thankful for. Do you realize that our Sunday morning attendance year to date in 2013 is up 22% from last year? And October has started off with the same blessing of God. Last Sunday we were up 40% over the first Sunday of October last year and up 74% from the first Sunday of October just three years ago. I certainly realize that numbers are not everything but they are an encouraging indicator that God is using our church to meet many people right where they are and help move them to where He wants them to be! After all, why do we count people? Because people count! People matter to God and they need to matter to us!
We also started out of the shoot fast this month in our Wednesday Children’s Ministry with 175 kids here for week #1 of our Kidsville and Club 56 season. Later this month we will have another major “Meeting & Moving” opportunity with our annual Harvest Festival. Last year over 1600 people were in our church for this Halloween evening event.
Let’s praise God together and give Him all of the glory for all that He is doing in and through us here at Gaylord E-Free! See you Sunday!
