A Fresh Start for a New YearIt seems that the time around the New Year is very busy. Tying up loose ends from 2014, preparing yearly financial reports, tax preparation, and more keep it busy. The New Year also seems to be a great time to make a change or start something new. As a church we branched out by starting a book club and I wasn’t sure how many people would be interested but for our first meeting we had eight people show up. We had our first meeting in January and we are currently reading through Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. It is my prayer as we get into Christian books that the faith of our people will be strengthened.

Sound MinistryIn the last update I wrote about starting a sound ministry at our church and as of January 1st it has begun. I had some friends convince me to upload the preaching to YouTube.com as well so we have begun to do that. The whole ministry has already been a blessing to many and we anticipate hearing more feedback about this ministry.

Youth RallyEvery few months we meet together with several other churches in this area, by this area we are talking about a 100 mile radius. The teens will memorize a chapter of Scripture and then compete in a Bible Quiz. These youth rally’s also include some preaching and some sort of teen activity. This time, after the quizzing, the kids went to the nursing home in Wheatland and sang for the seniors. We only have one teen so we join together with Pioneer Baptist Church who also has one teen. At January’s rally our two teens managed to win the competition. It was truly an underdog story.
Thanks so much for your prayers and support,
Jason, Becca, Elizabeth, Andrew, & John Miller
