On Sunday April 15th we were invited to share the 25th Anniversary of the founding of Trinity Baptist Church in Fond du Lac. Pastor Dan Leeds is the pastor of this growing local church ministry. Former pastor Ted Sutherland and his wife Marlene were present for the special day. He is is now pastoring at Calvary Baptist Church in Golden, Colorado. Kevin Schuler the founding pastor was unable to attend but sent a video greeting for all to enjoy in which he and his wife shared their memories of the first days of Trinity. Also present for anniversary was a former assistant pastor, Keith Doyle and charter member, Randy Tanis, who is currently the director of Camp Chetek as well as the pastor’s father Leon Leeds who was WFBC director during 15 of the 25 years.
The day’s activities included two services in the AM with Pastor Randy Tanis and Pastor Sutherland preaching. Dr. Leon Leeds and myself brought greetings in the respective services. For the evening service the church provided a delicious potluck dinner with former assistant Keith Doyle speaking to close out the day. Testimonies by present and former members shared blessings from the past. Also special music by the church choir, a men’s ensemble and individuals provided a complete day of ministry to the glory of God. This anniversary provided a wonderful day of celebration and praise to the Lord.
