This week we continue our new sermon series entitled “The Promise.” The purpose and desired outcome of this series is: 1) for the new and immature believer – is to introduce them to the Person, the purpose, the personal relationship and power of the Holy Spirit. 2) for the mature believer –to provoke them to be encouraged by practice and example, encourage the new and immature believer into a “Spirit-filled” life / lifestyle! This week’s sermon is entitled “The Promise Kept.” Let’s soar as we explore, “The Promise!”
It Happened Again! Last Sunday we witnessed the greatest miracle of all – a human being making connection and beginning relationship with God through the Person of Jesus Christ! Last Sunday, Nicole Watkins confessed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior! Her brother Justin accepted Jesus the Sunday before! Rhonda and Don had asked for Justin and Nicole to be added to ECF’s Prayer List about a month ago. God does hear our prayers and God does answers our prayers. Justin and Nicole – welcome to the fantastic – fabulous Family of God!
Jay Stone Family Singers – will be our guest next Sunday! (July 21) This is the 3rd time in three years that we have hosted them. They are from North Carolina and travel throughout the nation in full time ministry! I have known this family for over 25 years! Not only are they multi-talented and gifted singers, but they are anointed by the Holy Spirit! Join me in praying and expecting an awesome anointed service next Sunday with the Jay Stone Family Singers.
Fatherlessness is no secret at ECF and we are being proactive about it. We know that if you are an 18 year old male in America – you are a father figure to someone. Fatherlessness did not happen overnight and will not be corrected overnight – but it is now our time of opportunity to begin to correct this blight. We are going to continue to focus on our 1 Square Mile (1SM) with emphasis on discipleship. I encourage you to be faithful in your monthly faith commitments in supporting Pastor Phil Larson!
