Toledo First Headline News | October 5, 2023


Greetings, church family,

The Lord blessed our Fall BLAST. 35 people were baptized. There are more to come. Now, the hard work begins - discipleship/retention. It will take all of us working together to make that happen. Here are ways you can be involved:

1. PRAYER: Take one or two new believers under your wing and call them every week to pray with them. 

2. TRANSPORTATION: Assist some of the new believers with transportation

3. LUNCH: Invite a new person over to lunch so that you can get to know them better. 

Stephanie Dawn and Danny Thornton will lead our church in worship this week. We invite you to worship with us. 

Finally, I am getting married this Sunday, October 8 at 2 p.m. to my Queen Elizabeth. For those who informed me that you will be attending, you have the address. We have your seat prepared for you.

In case you change your mind, and you would still like to come, here is the address: 

53995 State Hwy 933, South Bend, IN 46637
[Gillespie Conference Center]

Blessings - and remember to Stay The Course!
