The new year brings opportunities for ministry in the county jail.  Have you ever given serious consideration to ministry in this area?  We would like to have a small team of people from our church that goes into the jail (about 4, 5 times a year on Sunday afternoons) to lead singing, provide special music, give testimony, and bring a Bible message.  Please see Pastor Dan if you are concerned for this ministry and for the men and women who often are “forgotten” in our communities.  Pray for our Chaplain Bill Medendorp who serves there each week.

When we realize that all our plans, organizations, thinking, working, physical strength, mental abilities and financial resources are insufficient—God welcomes us to cry out to Him.  Mark your calendars for Friday evening March 27 “One Cry” with Randy Hekman speaking with men and his wife Marcia with the ladies. Ride with us to Kalamazoo for supper or meet us there.  More details coming.

April 2 at 7:00 p.m. – Shower for Jessica Burch (fiancée of Tim Bowman).  See Dawn Bowen, Sharon Bowman, or Kelli Matteson for details.

The 2015 jail dates are June 7, August 30, October 11, and November 22.  Why not go and give your testimony of how the Lord saved you?

Ladies – Mark your calendars!  Our annual Ladies Retreat at Gull Lake Ministries is Sept. 10, 11, 12, 2015.  The cost is $147.00  Our speaker is Terri Jenkins with Continental Baptist Missions.

Attention students: Wondering what God wants you to do with the life that He has given you?  Why not visit the Word of Life Bible Institute in Hudson, Florida April 22 – 26 and ask the Lord if this could be where you should receive Bible training?  Contact Dale or Sue Nolan at email hidden; JavaScript is required for more information.  Cost?  $25.00

Spotlight on Missions

From the Garrison Family in the Dominican Republic

“In January my doctor finally gave me permission to return to the Dominican Republic on a temporary basis.  I still will have to return to the States occasionally for checkups and blood work.  I was able to see our friends and church members.  It was such a blessing to see everyone and worship with them.  It was also great to eat some Dominican national food and enjoy the warm weather.  I was able once again to preach the Gospel in Spanish to our Dominican Church and have a translator translate my Spanish sermon into Creole for our Haitian church!  My Spanish was quite “rusty”!  Our Haitian pastor took me to see our latest work in the nearby city of Buena Vista, the Grace Baptist Church of Buena Vista.  I was so pleased to see its numerical growth and its fervent Spirit for the Lord!”
