The people there are NOT friendly and as for the pastor's humor, if I wanted a church experience that makes me feel I'm in the Comedy Zone, I'd GO to the Comedy Zone or anywhere else where there is live entertainment. I want the PURE Word of God, not a comedian and all that looooooong, long, long, more than an hour of loud music and a man with hair all the way down his back as the Leader of the so-called 60+ minutes of "Praise and Worship" which is done before the "REAL" church services begins, then to have to listen to jokes in the place of the teaching of the Bible is not my idea of what I want in a worship service. And AGAIN!!!! The people are NOT friendly at all, even in their Sunday School hour that precedes the long praise and worship leading up to the comedy hour with the pastor. I've been there more than once and each time I've visited, it has been the same old, same old kind of mess. Pastor needs to start studying his KJB so that he can bring a decent sermon rather than jokes and generalities to the congregation. The congregation seems to worship the pastor rather than the Master!!!
no way to contact this church...cannot reach by phone, no website, no facebook page...
This is a place where God is the whole of it all before you go off what you hear visit for yourself and see if God want touch your heart and see if you want say finally I have a True Place to Worship God Prophet Marlon Goldie GriffinP.O.BOX 546Baytown Texas 77522-0546
Cold and Heartless Mega Church. How would I know? I worked for them. They laid me off as well as 13 other full time employees and 20-30 part time the week before Thanksgiving! They did the layoff all in one day with no notice at all and gave very little severance. They laid off some people who had worked there 20+ years! Just cut them cold. I understand budget cuts but they screwed us right before Christmas! They acted like a cruel corporation. Only one pastor has reached out to me after I was laid off and he wasn't even involved in the decision making. I loved the people I worked with directly but I found out the hard way that the leadership is garbage! I would have appreciated being let go months earlier with a week's notice to say my goodbyes. But they don't care about people on a personal level and it shows through their actions.
They came to invite us to fo to. There church and it touch me to go.
East Coast Church is a great place to belong, the people are very friendly. They participate in giving back to the community in several ways!
I don't know which Pastor Hodges you ae speaking of but it cannot be the man that Pastors First Baptist Church West in Jacksonville Florida. I have heard him preach, held conversations with him and eaten with him on multiple occasions. I have found him to have a great manner about him being ready to listen as well as talk being truly concerned about the people in his church. He is a man of God doing a tough job in tough times. I truly hope that you haven't let something petty or personal to cause you to make such a post.
