October 7th was the 90th Anniversary of First Baptist Church in Milltown which is led by Pastor Marlon Mielke the shepherd of this flock. The special day featured a Sunday School message by former Youth Pastor Dennis Fitzgerald who is currently pastoring in Illinois. Dr. Robert Crane of Pillsbury Baptist Bible College preached in the morning service. Following a delicious dinner on the grounds there was an afternoon service with testimonies by present and former church members and a historical DVD video of the 90 years prepared by one of the Pastor Mielke’s sons. Pastor Garry Thompson of Faith Baptist Church in Baldwin spoke in the afternoon service as one of a number of young people who have been saved through this ministry and are serving the Lord. The day’s activities closed with a cake fellowship following the afternoon service.
First Baptist Church has faithful history of consistent ministry and a solid stand for the Lord. Also it is one of the charter member churches of the WFBC at its founding in 1950. We thank God for the enduring ministry in Milltown and the faithfulness of the Mielke’s ministry.
