WITH THE LORD

Charles B. Hart.  Dr. Charles B. Hart, 96, was ushered into the presence of His Lord on Sunday morning January 15.  A memorial service was held at the First Baptist Church of Calumet with Doctor Les Ollila and Rev. Bruce Nolen officiating.  A graduate of Stanton High School, Charles moved to the Upper Peninsula’s Copper Country in 1937 to serve as a song leader at the GitcheGumee Bible Camp in Eagle River, MI. It was at this camp that he met his future wife, Joyce Rader, the daughter of the camp’s founder and director, Paul Rader. They were married on June 22, 1940 in Silvis, Illinois.  After pastoring downstate in the Stanton area, Charles accepted a call in 1949 to become the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Calumet, MI where he served as pastor until 1974. In addition to being pastor of First Baptist Church, Charles also served as the Director of GitcheGumee Bible Camp in 1957, succeeding his father-in-law, Rev. John Rader, who passed away that year. He served as president of that camp until 1981.  In 1999, Charles Hart’s extraordinary life was publicly recognized by his being given an honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Northland Baptist College of Dunbar Wisconsin.  [Read more…]

“Imprint”

The start of a new year has often been described by phrases such as, “a fresh start,” “the turning of a new leaf or page,” and “starting with a clean slate.” Perhaps in this highly technological age we will need to come up with some new phrases to mark the occasion like, “proceeding with a clean hard drive,” “upgrading your software,” or “downloading a new app!” [Read more…]
