East Gainesville is known for many things, from old neighborhoods that are the pride of area residents to beautiful bike paths and great scenery.

However, the best thing about east Gainesville may well be its churches. With numerous churches that were built in the 19th century by former slaves, every Sunday churches in the area are worshipping with the same spirit as they did years ago.

With a host of anointed and powerful preachers who will surely move you and stir up a fiery feeling inside of you, there is a chance for you to find a place where you can fellowship and receive a good word.

You also can hear a lot of great singing. And on top of that, on some special occasions, you can get a mouth-watering meal following worship services.

In addition, you can sometimes get a chance to see national and world renown men and women of the gospel, such as nine-year-old Terry Durham, also known as ‘‘The Lil’ Man of God,’’ Bishop Paul Morton of New Orleans and the powerful Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole of the Clark Sisters.

But, if you can't make it to church, take time out of your busy schedule to read the Guardian's coverage of area church services each week and find out about upcoming events at area churches.

Even more importantly, let us know at least two weeks in advance when you are having special events at your church so that we can let the rest of the community know. Who knows, we might be able to cover it as well.
