The Last Several Days

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 9:59 pm

To All:

I have not been able to post over the last few days simply because things have been moving that fast!

Here is a quick update!

Hispanic Ministry Update
First of all, on Sunday, February 8, during the 11am Worship Service, I appointed Rev. Raymond Escalera as Hispanic Pastor for Ocoee Church of God.

Pastor Raymond, along with his wife Marisol and daughter Amy, join us from Better Life Worship Center (Thanks Pastor Juan!) in Groveland, Florida.

Pastor Raymond is an Ordained Bishop with the COG and has been successful in church planting and pastoring.

On Sunday, March 1, we will launch our Hispanic Worship Services, beginning at 2pm.

We are excited about this new area of ministry and my prayer is that God will bless our efforts as we try to help one more person find Jesus as their Savior.


Land Purchase Update
On Friday, February 13, our trustees (Chuck Maynard, Michael Adams and Michael Epps) closed on the land located at 106 17th Ave (adjacent to our current church property).

This purchase was truly a miracle from God.

The purchase price was $35K, 1/6th of the price just 2 years ago!

Plans are already underway to begin clearing some of the debris on the property as we take our next step in ministry!


Talent Fund Raiser Campaign
We are in week 3 of our 9-week Talent Fund Raiser Campaign.

Miracle Sunday is set for March 29, and I’m looking forward in seeing how God has increased our initial seed talent of $2,000.

You don’t want to miss a Sunday, as you might miss a testimony of how God is working!


Well, I guess that is it for now!

God Bless!

Pastor Thomas
