November 30th for the Sunday evening service we were at Faith Baptist Church in Wisconsin Rapids. Pastor Steve Steinmetz is the pastor of this growing church and he also serves on the executive board of the WFBC as secretary. Following a number of testimonies and favorite hymns I preached for the evening service.
On Monday morning December 1st we held our WFBC board meeting at the church. Following the meeting we had our Annual Christmas Luncheon at a local restaurant. Nearly sixty pastors and wives and Christian friends gathered for this occasion. The meal was delicious and provided a wonderful time of fellowship. Pastor Mark Shore led the group in Christmas music, allowing us to accompany ourselves using tone chimes. To close out the dinner, I brought a brief message from the Book of Matthew about Joseph the father of Jesus. Many generous gifts were given to Carole and myself by those who attended and we are overwhelmed by these expressions of love.
