Dear Friends of Lake Gibson Nazarene Church,

Good News! God loves you and wants to establish His Throne in your heart. We are blessed people to hear that wonderful message.

Sunday, Aug. 20, 6 p.m.

This will be a great opportunity for members of the church family to ask questions and gain infor- mation from the church board about our pastor search and our next steps. Everyone is invited to attend. You can submit a question by email this week to the church office at:

It will also be possible to ask questions that night.

Pastoral search process. Of course we are continuing our pastoral search and we ask everyone to pray Faithfully for God's Will and direction to be clear. We will certainly want God to guide every step.

Pray for our children and teens and their families as they are back in school. Pray for their safety and that they will not only learn knowledge but will grow in the good things of God. Pray for our children and youth ministries.

We had a great time of Fellowship Sunday night with fruit and ice cream and the study of God's Word from Hebrews 9. Thanks to all who brought food and helped to coordinate that event. What a beautiful atmosphere we had as we sang together songs of praise and adoration. It is wonderful to serve a great God to whom we can sing, "I Love You Lord."

I sure look forward to seeing you this Sunday. Be praying and come with a heart open to receive God's touch and blessing. Pray for me as I continue our sermon series, ‘A Reason to Be’. This week, 'Why are We Here?'

With a joyful heart of love for you and for God,

Jerome Hancock
Interim Pastor
Lake Gibson Nazarene, Lakeland, Fla.
