Someone yell 'woo-hoo!'
In the six months that Jeff Gatlin has served as pastor and youth minister of Freedom Baptist Church, he's watched the congregation flourish from under a dozen to over 50 members. The marquis outside his contemporary church reads, "What can this sign say that will get you here on Sunday?" It may be more of a rhetorical question, but he is amused nonetheless by some of the responses the sign has generated. "Festival this weekend!" and "Swimming pool in rear!" are two of the more creative ideas offered by Mason Elementary students.

Column: Remember to pray
Q: I feel so isolated. I'm the only one in my family who's a Christian, and every weekend they all go out drinking while I stay at home watching television by myself.

Column: Healing outpouring rocks Lakeland, why not rock St. Augustine too?
What began as a week of meetings at Ignited Church in Lakeland has continued for the past 38 days. There has been an outpouring of God's healing and Heaven has come to earth and touched the city of Lakeland. As the healings and miracles began, the crowds began to grow. The meetings moved from the 700 seat Ignited Church to a larger church, then to the Lakeland Civic Center and then to Tiger Baseball Stadium. Hundreds have come to a personal relationship with Jesus and thousands have been healed and received miracles. The deaf are hearing, the blind are seeing and the cripples are walking.
