Getting caught up here at the blog from an unbelievably busy and wonderful summer of ministry and refreshment.
One of the highlights of this past summer was undoubtedly the commissioning of the Kosiorek family to serve on behalf of Grace in Togo Africa as full-time missionaries. The Kosiorek’s are now in Albertville France for language school. Well, most of them. Brenda is still in the States recovering from shoulder surgery. Lord willing, she will fly out this weekend to join the family and begin language school herself.
On August 4th we held a special commissioning service featuring Brad Winkler, Pre-field Director from ABWE, who gave a challenge and charge to the congregation of Grace. Dr. Donald Shirk, Senior Pastor of Grace, gave an overview of what a commissioning is, Pastor Jeff Bartz (Youth) gave a charge to the Kosiorek boys and Pastor Mark Hurlbut (Missions) gave a charge to Eric & Brenda Kosiorek. Special music and a fellowship time rounded out a significant morning in our church families life!
Enjoy a few pictures from the service.
