On Sunday afternoon February 4th we were at First Baptist Church in Hartford where Mike Gordon is the pastor. Mike and Carole Gordon have been serving in Hartford for 32 years. My Carole was asked to assist in the music ministry for the service. I shared the ministry of the WFBC and preached for the afternoon service. First Baptist Church has afternoon services for the months of January and February each year to cut heating costs and make it easier for their families to get out during the winter weather.
The church building is an older church building which they have worked hard at updating and improving. Just recently they have added additional lighting to the overflow area of their auditorium to improve that seating area. God has continued to bless the ministry there with growth and a strong core of faithful families.
