The “Grateful to God” service was held in Fort Wayne, Indiana, at the Lafayette Street church on June 17-18. Guests arrived from the Bowser Avenue church, along with visitors from Ohio and Michigan. The entire service was filled with gratitude to God, who has allowed the Lafayette Street congregation to pay off their mortgage. They are now the proud owners of their own church building and property!
A short history, shared through testimonies and videos, began on Friday evening and continued throughout Sabbath day. We enjoyed hearing what God has done, even through the many rentals, struggles, obstacles, and uncertainties. To God be the glory for all He has done! Many praises in song and prayers were dedicated to the Lord.
A Lord’s Prayer wall hanging was presented to this congregation from the Northeast District in recognition for all they have done and as a reminder that God will continue to prevail.
God is good. And this service truly showed evidence of “all the time”!
