On Sunday July 30th we were ministering at Havenwood Baptist Church in Hurley. Steve Newman is the pastor of this local church ministry.
I taught a Bible lesson for Sunday School on “The Model Church” reminding them that neither size nor accommodations qualify as requirements for such a church. Pastor Newman preached for the AM Service while Carole and Polly Newman, the pastor’s wife, provided a special number for the service. Following a lunch at the church I brought a challenge about transformed living along with the presentation of our promo DVD.
Havenwood is in a challenging area for ministry. Though one of our smaller congregations, the church continues to provided biblical care for its members and a lighthouse of outreach for the gospel in a dark community. Pray for them as they work to reach souls in Hurley and Ironwood, Michigan.
