Sunday we visited at First Baptist Church in West Bend where Bruce Dunford is the pastor. Pastor preached a challenging message on thankfulness from Psalm 145 during the morning and afternoon services. The Northland Witness Ensemble from Northland Baptist Bible College provided special music throughout the day. Also during the afternoon service many people from the congregation shared their thankfulness in the form of personal testimonies to God’s gracious provision.
For the noon meal the church provided a traditional Thanksgiving meal with a pie fellowship following the afternoon service. The entire day was an excellent testimony to the abundant provision of the Lord in our behalf.
Just a year ago in December of 2007 we were at First Baptist Church for their new building dedication. It was a blessing to see the auditorium filled for both services. In September of 2009 the WFBC will hold its annual meeting at First Baptist Church. We thank God for this growing ministry in West Bend.
