January 22nd we held a meeting with our new church members. Praise God, in the last 2016 year, a record number of people have joined out church- 76 new members.
During the meeting, Pastor Bogdan shared some statistics about the church. When Living Stream Church (hyperlink to website) was founded in 2000, we had 23 members. As of now we have 530 members of which 234 are families. The oldest church member is 95 years old. From the 530 members, 342 people are from ages 18-60 (60% young people and families); 138 people are from the ages 40-60; 5 people who are 60 and up.
Living Stream Church consists of over 50 different ministries, many of which were presented during our meeting. New members had the opportunity to meet church leaders and administration staff. During this time of fellowship our new members had the opportunity to share their stories and testimonies about moving to Jacksonville. God Has brought people from different states and countries. We are happy to welcome new people into our big family. Living Stream Church is a church filled with people who are alive, active, serve God, and take part in the life of the church.
