We were blessed by the ministry of Paul & Jennifer Sadler this past Sunday, July 28th. The Sadlers are church planters serving with Fellowship International in Japan. Jennifer sang during the service and Paul brought a message based on Ruth 1:1-22 where he explored the problem of pain and bitterness, reminding us of the importance of keeping our focus on the faithfulness of God in our lives and circumstances. Prior to their service with Fellowship International in Japan, Paul served as an Associate Pastor here at Grace.
Next Sunday, August 4th, Nathan Fullerton will be preaching. Nathan is a graduate of The Toronto Baptist Seminary and is working alongside Darryl Dash in planting Liberty Grace Church in Toronto’s new and growing community known as Liberty Village. This is a church plant of FEB Central Ministries, the Ontario and English-speaking Quebec family of Fellowship Baptist Churches.
