Final Youth Night – We wrapped up youth club two Fridays ago with a BBQ/Cookout and a special gospel testimony from Josh Fortune, who was a NATO cameraman in Afghanistan. We had 25 young people in attendance with a few coming from other churches. Please pray for these young people over the summer. We praise God for how He is working in their lives.
Mission Team – Last week, a mission team from Gospel Baptist Church in Greenville, Ohio was here to help us. Gospel is one of our supporting churches, and they were a huge help with outreach, serving, and ministry. This is their second year to come, and we look forward to them returning again. If you are interested in coming on a mission trip sometime, feel free to get in touch with us.
Holiday Club – The mission team helped us with a three-day Bible club. We had several children attend including a few new children. The goal of the club was to give the gospel out and to reach into some new families in our community. We are very grateful that a couple new children and their parents attended the service on Sunday as a result of the club.
Community BBQ – We had our annual community BBQ/Cookout this past Sunday after the service. We had a number of people from the community come by the church and we had over 60 people in attendance for the service with others coming afterwards for the BBQ. It was awesome to see the people of our church serving in so many ways and showing the love of Christ to everyone. God had truly brought together a wonderful family and team at Downham.
Women Behind the Scenes Conference – Our home church, Vision Baptist, is hosting a conference for women on 25th August. This conference is designed to encourage women in their service for the Lord. I believe it will be a real blessing to the women of your churches. For more info, go here.
