Welcome Dr. Jerry Vines

    WELCOME TO WESTSIDE and welcome to March! Today is going to be an exciting beginning to an exciting month. March is a great time to march to church!

    I WANT TO WELCOME Dr. Jerry Vines back to Westside! Dr. Vines has been gracious to come to Westside once a year and he will be preaching during the Morning Worship Service. He was the longtime pastor of the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville. He has served as the President of the Southern Baptist Convention. He has authored several books. Although he has retired from the pastorate, he has not retired from the ministry. We will receive a love offering for Dr. Vines this morning. I know you will give, pray, and hear him gladly as he preaches the Word this morning. Welcome, Dr. Vines!

    I WANT TO WELCOME Dr. Gary L. Williams back to Westside as well. Dr. Williams preached at Westside a few years back and has agreed to preach during our Evening Worship Service that we call “The Sunday Night Gathering” at 6 p.m. He has been pastor of the Hopewell Church for 30 years. The church has two campuses, one in Mandarin and the other in St. Johns. You can hear him daily at 1 p.m. on WROS radio, AM 1050. He graduated from Ed White High School, so he is a “Westsider” at heart! He will be joined this evening by the Hopewell Praise Team. This is going to be a great night of worship that you will not want to miss. Welcome, Dr. Williams!

    YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED a building going up across the street on our property. We are building a concession stand that will be used for our recreation ministry during the soccer and flag football seasons. This is another ReNew project. Your faithful giving to ReNew has made it possible. In the very near future we will begin another ReNew project as we remodel the Worship Center. If you have not been giving an offering above your tithe to ReNew, I encourage to start today!
