I have just enjoyed a sunset walk with my wife, Sharon, as I write this column. We are taking advantage of these nice summer days while we have them. Soon the cold chills of winter breezes will be blowing through our neighborhood. The constant parade of walkers, joggers, bikers, and parents pushing baby strollers will diminish to the few dedicated exercise fanatics who are willing to brave winter’s brutality. [Read more…]

CEDAR SPRINGS, First Baptist Church (Jim Howard, Pastor) – On Sunday, May 16, the First Baptist Church of Cedar Springs, MI licensed to the Gospel ministry their Youth Pastor, Chris Howard. Pastor Chris has been with FBC for just under two years and has been doing an incredible job in reaching the teens of the community for Jesus Christ! Chris has worked for many years at youth camps in Michigan, most recently with Lake Ann Camp. He became burdened to be involved in a youth ministry in which he could be investing long term in the lives of young people. Chris looks forward to graduation from Baptist Bible College next year as he completes the last few classes necessary for a degree in the camping/youth ministries program. Senior Pastor Jim Howard (Chris’s father) presented the charge to the ministry from Psalm 37 – a proud moment as the baton was being passed to the next generation. Rev. Bob Teis, Rev. Tom Dolph, Rev. Stan Mohr, and Rev. Cliff Owen shared in the service as well. The service ended with the presentation of the license by the Deacon Board, a prayer of dedication by Mr. Dale DeWeese (Deacon Chairman) and the church family coming forward following the service to offer their congratulations! The FBC church family is looking forward to many more years partnering together with Pastor Chris in the ministry to the teens of our community. [Read more…]
