On Sunday, March 12th we were able to share in the services at Faith Baptist Church of Baldwin. Faith is pastored by Garry Thompson who has been in that church for a number of years. I was able to speak in the Sunday School, AM service and then following a pot luck dinner at the church, I gave a report of the ministry of the WFBC.
The Thompsons had just returned from a trip to the holy land under the direction of Pastor Dan Leeds of Fond du Lac. They have done a great job of building this ministry, including a major remodeling of the church basement. Their ladies provided a delicious beef and ham dinner with side dishes provided by the families of the church.
The Baldwin area along with Woodville and Hudson is enjoying a substantial population growth from commuters from the St. Paul area. This provides a increased challenge for growth in ministry and outreach for the churches in these communities.
