The Grace Hispanic Bible Baptist Church in Grant, Michigan, celebrated their twenty-second anniversary as a church and fourth at their new church campus on August 30 th . The service was attended by members of the church, supporting sister churches, and several guests from surrounding migrant camps. Ken Floyd, MARBC Ministry Director, was the guest speaker at the service. The Grace church family is comprised of people from many different Latin American and Caribbean countries who have moved to the region. The immigrants come from Grant, Fremont, Newaygo, Kent City, and Sparta.
God continues to greatly bless Grace’s ministry with spiritual fruit. One highlight of the service was the baptism of a teen who recently placed her faith and trust in Jesus Christ as her Savior. This follows the baptism earlier this summer of three members from one family that was reached with the gospel by Grace’s pastor, Pepe Morales.
The church was able to hold a scaled down version of its annual Daily Vacation Bible School in early August. The DVBS is a major annual outreach has impacted hundreds of area children and their families. Many sister MARBC churches assist in this annual outreach event by providing transportation, assisting with classes, crafts, prizes, sports activities, and preparing dinner for the children and their families each night.
Pastor Pepe and Paul Newton, Pepe’s co-laborer and interpreter share: “We are so grateful that God has brought us to this area where He has opened the doors for the Gospel to be preached in migrant camps, in the jail at White Cloud, and often on the radio. God provided twelve acres of land and our own building which has been finished without any debt. We thank all of you who love the Hispanic community and have given so generously to help make this happen.”
