Showers of Blessing

 

Ten people from Forest Baptist Church were baptized in the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. On the bank of the river, standing in the pouring rain, were 40+ encouragers, church family members and prayer warriors who have stood behind and beside these believers, and have committed to keep doing so.

Pastor Sue Wilson-Radel reports: "Of those baptized, three were new believers in our youth group, and one child who may look young, but knows more about Jesus and the Word of God than many adults."

Play Ball '22

 

Mark Mahserjian-Smith writes:

Recently, our LLC team traveled to New York City to attend a Yankee’s game. We rendezvoused at FBC Bethlehem and Pastor David Hardin drove us to Newark, NJ, where we caught the subway into the city.

 

We arrived early enough to spend time at the 9-11 Memorial at the World Trade Center. Most of us had never been there before. Being at the site where so many lost their lives and our world changed forever caused all of us to be contemplative and thoughtful.

 

Everyone survived this trip with only a few hiccups (apparently, there was some confusion around lunch). In all seriousness, it was great to spend the day with friends.

March For Life

 

Pastor Ken and Paula Sommerfeldt (Olive Branch Baptist Church) reports: “On Saturday the 13th a group from Olive Branch Baptist Church Belle Vernon headed to Monongahela for the March for Life. The group was joined by many others from the local area. It was a beautiful morning for the march and everyone enjoyed the walk down the Main Street of Monongahela.
