WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER 2021

 

Here at FGEC we started out the summer in revival with Bishop John Ritcheson and now we have ended the summer in revival.  We had two powerful weeks of junior camp and senior camp at BYC, along with some powerful Sunday services and Wednesday night bible studies, as well as several Baptisms.  We’ve experienced growth in our Wednesday night youth group (One-Way) as well as adding more kids to our children’s church.

The Summer of 2021 has been a wonderful time here at FGEC and we are looking forward to the fall season with an eager expectation and a Holy anticipation!

Even in spite of all of the uncertainty, chaos and confusion in your world today, we know that we serve an on-purpose God who is all knowing, all powerful and whose plans and purpose will be accomplished not only in our lives, but in the world we well.  No matter what happens in the world, great things are in store for the church of Jesus Christ. We encourage you to be prepared for what could happen, not out of fear, but out of wisdom, but must of all, we know that God will protect and provide for His children! 

We are in awe of God’s goodness, grace, mercy and faithfulness. The Church of Jesus Christ has a lot of work to do here in the last days, but here at FGEC we are thankful, because God is doing is doing a great work through us, here in Lincoln and Central Illinois. We thank you for financial support and for partnering with us in this great work! Let’s continue to build the Kingdom until Jesus returns! What God has started; He will most certainly finish.  Be encouraged, stay focused and keep the Holy Ghost fire burning!  We haven’t come this far, to only come this far!

We love and appreciate each and every one of you!
