Praise the LORD !!! We had our very first service in our new facilities March 24th Palm Sunday - 2013 There were several visitors in attendence with two families joining the church. The Lord graciously opened a door for us to be able to purchase existing church facilities. There is a wonderful church building, a separate Gymnasium / Fellowship Hall and two houses on almost four acres. It is located 1 mile West of Shipshewana. The way in which God ordered and provided is a testament to the glory of God.
The morning service was a dedication service of these facilities followed by a pot luck dinner in the fellowship hall.

Ladies' Day Banquet
On Saturday, May 5th we held our third annual Ladys Day banquet. We had several ladys who brought muliple guests. Mrs. Wendy Howard, wife of Pastor Mike Howard of Gospel Light Baptist Church brought an inspirationl devotion. There were several lost in attendance who were able to hear a gospel witness.
The luncheon was catered by the Garden Gate Cafe. We make no charge for this event so that all may invite guests and use it as a day of ministry without financial constraints.
We are thankful for the wives and mothers in our church for all they do in their homes as well as our church. God bless you !
TUESDAY, MARCH 6TH, 2012
We just finished a wonderful missions conference 2/26/2012 - 2/29/2012 with three missionaries. George Dubish our veteran missionary to India was our main speaker all day Sunday as well as each evening Monday through Wednesday. Our attendance was great through out the entire conference and God really stirred our hearts to do more for missions. We nearly doubled our faith promise commitment from our previous missions conference.
In addition to Brother Dubish we also had Paul and Miriam Coblentz who are missionaries to the Amish people. They were especially helpful to us in our own outreach to our Amish community. Jonathon and Alisa Ballou, missionaries to Thailand also did a tremendous job in presenting their field and the great need in reaching the millions of Buddhist peoples. They are a fine young family who will be faithful to their call.
