VBS Help

Here is a brief announcement from Pastor Matt Read of Liberty Baptist in Dike:

VBS help- Rik Reuter is a great resource for VBS. If you still need help with your church’s VBS or are not sure how you will pull it off, Rik would love to help. Rik is a Christian magician and ventriloquist. He drives from Virginia with a trailer full of stage equipment and decorations. He is doctrinally very sound and has great heart for kids and church ministry. Him and his wife are a great team that do all of the heavy lifting for VBS. All that a church would need to provide is help getting the word out and a couple volunteers to shepherd kids around. Rik only asks for a love offering.  He will be in Dike on August 7-11 and is looking for a church to minister to the week before or after. If interested contact Matt Read Check out his website for more info.

Fish & Game Dinner Update

Walnut Park Baptist Church in Muscatine, Iowa hosted their sixth annual “Fish and Game Dinner” Friday evening, March 10, 2023. Since Muscatine is located right on the Mississippi River and there are many other favorite fishing holes nearby, everyone enjoyed fried fish in abundance. In addition, the guys cooked a variety of meats from their freezers: venison, pheasant, duck, turkey and even moose. The main gospel objective of the evening was met when Tim Capon effectively shared his hunting and fishing stories interwoven with the gospel explained 5 or 6 times during his talk. After hearing how Tim explained the gospel again and again, and that 10 or 15 guests heard that gospel, the pastor said, “Tim, that was perfect! That’s exactly what we hoped would happen tonight.”

Praise the Lord!! Please be in prayer for the guests that heard the gospel so clearly that evening!
