Our Mission: Leading People into a Growing
Relationship with Jesus Christ.
January 18, 2015
“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
Pray for many in our congregation who are struggling with illnesses.
Pray that 2015 would be a time of significant personal and congregational spiritual growth in love and service.
Pray for our Search Team as they prayerfully seek a godly Senior
Pastor candidate, and that the Lord prepare him for fruitful ministry
BB-EFC Missionary of the Week: Ed and Jeannie Casteel with
New Tribes Mission in Indonesia, writes that Ed’s 2nd trip to Indonesia
was especially gratifying in that they were able to accomplish the final
checking on the book of Genesis. This is the accumulation of many,
many hours and much work on the part of their team and the translation checker as well. So they truly praise the Lord that another book of
the Bible can be put into the hands of the Wana believers.
