October 22:
Pulpit of JBC - We have been truly blessed by the preaching from several men of our congregation including Head Deacon Danny Weinreich, Bro. Joe Lestina and Bro. Pierre Geoffrion.  On Sunday, October 22, we will again be stirred by the messages prepared by Deacon Wayne Briggs and Bro. Clyde Ausmus.  On Wednesday, October 25th, Bro. Danny Weinreich gladly returns to the JBC pulpit.  All of these Godly men gave our Pastor and Mrs. Beal a wonderful 2-week break with his family ~ who returns on October 26th.  JBC thanks ALL of these faithful men who answered the call to preach cheerfully!  May the Lord bless you all!  Please JOIN us to hear these special messages!
