On Tuesday, August 25th, the first group of people in Ironwood completed the Good News For You Bible Study developed by noted missionary Charles Brock. Catalyst Baptist Church has joined with Church Group International from Missouri to saturate Ironwood and the surrounding area with the Good News For You Bible Study. Inside this first group we had two people that Pastor Ian met on the sidewalks of Ironwood and invited to the new and exciting study and who have since become like family within Catalyst. Not to be outdone, the Pastor’s own mother completed the study also; there is nothing better than home cooking!
Up next for this group is Charles Brock’s second study, I Have Been Born Again, What Next? This begins the process of learning just what it means to be born again. This is a great study and the group discussed their shared desire to transition into this second phase on Tuesday.
Pastor Ian is still walking the hard streets of Ironwood, Wakefield, and Bessemer with the plan of putting one Good News For You in every household in Gogebic county. With prayer this group will be the first of many to complete the study. We certainly cannot control what people do with the Bible Study or if they will even take it, but we can deliver the full Gospel presentation and allow people to make up their own minds and thereby fulfill the Great Commission.
