Sunday, August 17th we were ministering at our newest church planting mission work at Northport Baptist Church in Racine. Pastor Caleb Schumacher is the pastor of this year old ministry. Carole provided assistance on the keyboard and we sang a special number for the service. I presented our ministry via power point and preached for the morning service. We rejoiced in seeing a full auditorium for the service.
Northport was started September 23, 2007 by Southport Baptist Church in Kenosha, pastored by Jon Jamison. Pastor Schumacher is the son-in-law to Pastor Jamison and has been working hard to see this new ministry progress in the Racine area. The Lord has blessed with a number of families from Racine who are faithfully attending and several have joined this new local church.
Pray for this local church that God would give them an open door of ministry to their community with the addition of families for this work. Brother Schumacher is teaching fulltime during the school year which limits his opportunties for ministry. We are trusting God for His wisdom and direction for the future growth and full establishment of this local church.
