Dear Friends of Lake Gibson Nazarene Church,

God is blessing, things are happening, and we have lots of news.

Meet the Pastoral Candidate and his family.
Sunday, July 30 at 6 p.m.

Our Search Committee is compiling & summarizing questions to ask him submitted by the congregation. If you would like to submit a question, you can do so by emailing the church office or by placing it in the offering plate this Sunday.

Following this time of greeting and questions, we will move to the Fellowship Hall for informal interaction and refreshments.

All members, 15 years of age and older, will be asked to vote on Sunday, August 13, regarding calling him as Pastor. Please be praying about this vital decision.

Kay Casey to become Kindergarten teacher
at Sleepy Hill Elementary.

After 12 years as our Director of Children's Ministry and overseeing our Daycare, Kay Casey clearly feels that God has opened the door and is calling her to serve in the public school system. The school is 4 blocks from her home and our own Greg Deal is principal.

Kay is a great blessing to our church and we thank God for all she has done and for her wonderful spirit. She will continue as our Children's Director as we transition to new leadership. Pray for her, our faithful team of Children's workers, and our Daycare as we move forward.

Kids' Kamp this week,

Friday through Monday morning at Lakewood Retreat Center in Brooksville. Pray for God to bless and use Kay Casey and her team of workers as they minister to the 40 children attending.

VBS and Kids' Kamp Program, Sunday, 1O:30 a.m., August 6. Happy music, lively video, and the joyful faces of our beautiful children will be an inspiring part of our worship experience.

Mission Nashville.

Our 22 teens and workers had a very blessed and safe trip. We saw a brief video and heard a thrilling report from them this past Sunday. If you would like to see the entire video, a link is provided. We have prayed and many of you have given to make this trip possible. We thank God for the unforgettable impact it has had on these young people's lives.

  • Emily Barnwell, one of our recent high school graduates, is now serving as our Youth Intern. This is a wonderful opportunity for her to experience youth ministry firsthand and to develop her spiritual gifts. Welcome, Emily!
  • Richard Hewitt had a great trip to Trevecca Nazarene University where he received in-depth training on evangelism in today's culture.
  • Avery Welshans, 11 month old daughter of our Youth Pastor, Ryan Welshans, and his wife, Leslie, was in the hospital over the weekend with a respiratory issue. She was released today (Monday). Ryan and Leslie have already expressed their appreciation for all the prayer and support from their church family.

You ARE a GREAT Church Family and Brenda and I are blessed to be among you. Be praying that God will continue to pour out His blessings on our Ministries and in our services.

Hoo-Ray! Our Team WINS!

Jerome Hancock
