From Your Community Lay Director

Greetings Madisonville Great Banquet Community!

The 2016 Spring Great Banquet season has arrived. The Men’s #171 and the Women’s #172 and #173 are formed and ready to begin their eight week team meetings in preparation for their weekends. God has chosen these team members to share His love and minister to our guests during these weekends. These are God’s teams. He molds these teams. We are merely being His hands and feet as we share His love with our guests.

Please pray for these teams. We all believe in the power of prayer, and that’s most important way we can show our love and support for these weekends…..teams and guests…..is through our prayers!

Many of you know that we’ve experienced several problems with the Great Banquet website the last couple of years. Our current website is outdated and needs to be replaced. Bryan Martin is in the process of building us a new website. This new website may be up and running by the time you get this newsletter. I pray it is. I’m looking forward to seeing the updated version. Pray for Bryan. Pray that God leads him through this process.

If you are not on a team this spring, you can still find many ways to serve our guests during these weekends. You can help setup or take down beds on Wednesday night (before the weekend) and Sunday mornings, hold a candle at the Candlelight on Saturday night, help clean up the church on Sunday afternoon, serve meals, make snacks and salads, write letters to the guests, help agape team members, attend the Closing, and most of all…PRAY! So, come on out and be a part of these weekends and make them special for our guests.

Don’t forget the prison and jail Great Banquets. This ministry now has eight weekends per year. The Holy Spirit has no problem getting through the fences and razor wire at these places. These weekends are powerful. If you think you would like to be a part of one of these or any of the future weekends contact Jason Eastwood (270) 452-1313.

I want to thank each of you who faithfully support the Madisonville Great Banquet Ministry. We share a love for these weekends. They are truly special. They are without a doubt pleasing to God.
So, as we worship together, fellowship together, disciple together, minister together, and most importantly pray together for these weekends, may we never forget the Holy Spirit makes these weekends work.

So……Come Holy Spirit…..let the Spring season begin!
May God bless you all!

De Colores,
Dave Hendrix, Community Lay Director

P.S. Don’t forget to pray for me.

Letter from Lay Director #169

Dear Great Banquet Community, I may have come to GB #131 as reluctant a guest that had ever come. I wasn’t “the one who thought he needed it the least”. I was “the one who wanted it the least”. My relationship with Christ had taken a 28 year back seat to the world.... read more
