Faith Bible Church, Pastor Ralph Flynn

  • We had a great Vacation Bible School July 21–25 and an Academy of Arts Ministry August 6.
  • We are looking forward to having evangelist Dr. Bud Bierman Sept. 26-29 Friday and Saturday at 7:00 PM. Sunday 10:40 AM and 6:00 PM.

Greencastle Bible Church, Pastors Chuck Flesher and Paul Martin

  • On August 3 we unanimously voted to call Joel McAllister as an assistant pastor, and he has accepted. Joel recently finished his Master of Divinity degree from Bob Jones University. He and his wife Crystal have a one year old and are expecting their second child in December. They plan on being at Greencastle October 1, Lord willing. Pray for their transition and the Lord’s blessing on them and Greencastle!

Middlefield Bible Church, Pastor John Howard

  • Praise for a new man attending our Sunday School each week.  He is a direct contact from our door-to-door efforts.
  • Praise for two men in our church who have been going with me on visitation each week.
  • Praise for all the opportunities we have had to share the Gospel with people on their doorsteps this summer.  Some have even prayed the sinner’s prayer.
  • Prayer for follow-up on these and other contacts
