A group consisting of several high school seniors, college students, and church members returned last week from a missions trip to Mexico City. They spent many days serving with Missionary Clint Rardin ('94) through witnessing, Bible clubs, services, a children's ministry workshop, and college classes. Praise the Lord for His working in the lives of the people in Mexico as well as in the lives of those who went. To see more pictures, click here or on the picture below.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway” (I Corinthians 9:24). The apostle Paul was [...]
College students enjoyed going to the Chicago Auto Show last week. Before heading to the city, Joe and Lori LaBate treated everyone to a delicious Italian dinner. Some weren't quite sure about the idea of a "car show," but by the end of the evening, everyone agreed it was a great night!
The ladies enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Mother/Daughter Banquet on Friday. We were privileged to have many visitors in attendance despite the snowstorm!

There was once a king who desired to have it all. He desired riches more than anything in the world. One day his dream came true. You have heard of it, “The Midas Touch.” He ran to the coffee table; he ran to the chair; he ran to the bed; he could not stop touching things—the sight of gold exhilarated him. He thought of everything he could get his hands on. He sat down to eat in the evening and he grabbed an apple and it turned to gold. He laughed with glee. It was just about bedtime when his daughter [...]

This year we were able to hold our traditional New Year's Service on New Year's Eve--bringing in the new year together as a church family. A church-wide fellowship started the evening off and then the focus of the service to follow was preaching by two Fairhaven Baptist College seniors. At the conclusion of the special service full of singing, specials, preaching, and testimonies, we prayed in the new year. We are looking forward serving the Lord in 2018!
We praise the Lord for His goodness! He blessed us with a wonderful day in His house on Sunday. What a joy to see the auditorium filled with guests in the morning service as we celebrated our Savior's birth and came together to worship Him! The 3rd-6th grade children did a wonderful job on their program. We came together again on Sunday evening for a special service filled with Scripture reading and singing. O Come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord! Click here or on the picture below to view more pictures.
