We opened our September ministry at First Baptist Church of Durand. Pastor Steve Cole is the pastor of the church and he and his family were away for a time of rest. We shared the ministry of the WFBC in the Sunday School hour as well as giving a Bible lesson on the ministry of serving in the local church. Carole and I were able to provide special music and I preached for the morning service.
Following the service we enjoyed a time of food and fellowship with the church congregation. First Baptist Church is not a part of the WFBC but we have enjoyed several opportunities to minister to the folks there. The morning service showed a good group of people gathering for worship and ministry. We thank the Lord for the many smaller churches that make up the witness of the gospel of Christ across our state.
