I was wondering what happened to all the people that use to go to church. I have noticed all the people have left.

People have opinions and different beliefs...A lot of the people that use to go there have grown old and sick and are unable to attend...The church is struggling but it is still going..

Are you talking about the one that is run by Wm. McDowell or the one by the water tower?

The one run by Wm. wastes more money than Michael Jackson.

Excuse me, but I happen to think highly of William McDowell. When my wife Rebekah and I got married in May of 2005 and needed a larger facility for our wedding and somewhere in or close to Ellsinore than what Good Hope General Baptist has, William McDowell gladly let us have our wedding at his church for free if we cleaned up afterwards, which we did.

Doesn't sound like someone wasteful to me...

I agree, completely. Our family has always been good friends with a lot of the people that go to that church. No church is perfect, no one person is perfect, but there are those that at least have earned respect for their faithfulness towards the church. W. McDowell is a very respectable man and I'm proud of the accomplishments that he has helped to create throughout the years.

There has been a lot that has happened over time, as things normally do. No church members have ever been arrested for anything related to the Church itself. Any criminal actions against any members or former members were not committed against or enabled the Church.

Wm. McDowell used to be an associate pastor there, he is now (and has been for many years) pastor of the First General Baptist Church, and he is doing very well and we're all proud of him. Keith Boyer is pastoring locally as well, others former members such as Steven Monroe and Keith Carnahan are pastoring churches elsewhere.

Many members have heeded the calling and have went across the country and around the world serving the Lord as pastors, youth leaders, service directors, missionaries, etc. As a Christian, we couldn't be more proud of them.

Churches change form many reason, some have to do with their leadership and their membership or both. There have been several pastors since longtime pastor Tom Knodell was called elsewhere.

Sometimes during constant change we as humans tend to lose focus.

Also, in the day we live many churches are converting their services to a more contemporary service with newer modern upbeat Gospel music and utilizing technology, making the services much more entertaining for some audiences. Some say this takes away from their worship, but others embrace it as a modern worship service.

Although contemporary services appeals frequently to younger audiences, often older audiences are often not accepting of the newer modern services and music.

Sometimes churches have both a contemporary and traditional service each Sunday morning.

To their credit, Ellsinore First Baptist Church continues to have only traditional services.

From what I understand, the new pastor is working hard to spread the Gospel and grow the church.

It's still a great church and I would highly recommend it. Please pray for the Church, their pastor and membership.
