Sunday we closed out our September ministry at Havenwood Baptist Church in Hurley. Steve Newman is the pastor of this local church ministry and he and his family were taking some time away from the work. Carole provided keyboard assistance with the music for the services and she and I provided special music for one of the services. I taught Sunday School on the theme “Considering the Harvest.” I presented our ministry via DVD during the AM Service as well as preaching from Ephesians. Following the service we enjoyed a time of fellowship over lunch. The afternoon service come after the lunch time and we had four additional attenders who came for that service.
Pastor Newman has done a fine job remodeling the auditorium to better fit the building situation. They have added pews which gives a more sense of permanence for the building. Despite the challenges of the job market in Hurley, the church is seeing some new people. Pray for this work that God would provide some core families to solidify this ministry.
