“Three Georgia counties have drawn significant populations in the past year, ranking among the top 10 in the nation in growth rate. Forsyth County ranked No. 8 in the nation, increasing its population by 7.2 percent, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released Thursday. It was the fastest-growing Georgia county. “Once they discovered us, they’re all moving here,” said Forsyth County Commissioner Linda Ledbetter, a lifelong resident. “It’s the greatest place to be. We’re 40 miles from Atlanta and we have Route 400 to get you there. We’re six hours from the beach and three hours from the mountains,” she said. The county added more than 10,000 people in one year, measured from July 1, 2006, to July 1, 2007. While Jackson County broke the top 10 this year, Forsyth County has consistently been a pace setter for growth, placing sixth in the nation when looking at the time span of 2000 to 2007. Forsyth has grown by 62 percent in that time period, the census data show.”This is great for a church that wants to reach souls.

I hope that you are praying for our church and its ministry. I hope you will learn to look at our area as a mission field where God has placed us. Let’s do all in our power to get the gospel to the area. Invite your friends. Pray for your neighbors. See what you can do to personally get the gospel message to more people.
