September 30, 10:00a.m., Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center, Grace College and Seminary
Over the course of 75 years of ministry Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church has been used by God to encourage, equip, and send thousands of people. We’re inviting all who have ever been a part of our church family to join us as we celebrate 75 years of service for Christ and His Kingdom.
WLGBC got its start on the Grace Seminary campus, so we’re gathering at the Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center to worship God together and celebrate with a meal.
Along with special music and video greetings from around the world, we’ll be hearing from Dr. Bill Katip, President of Grace Schools, Dr. John Teevan, former pastor of WLGBC, Ed Lewis, Director of CE National and former youth pastor at WLGBC, and others.
There will plenty of time to greet, visit, and reminisce with friends both old and new. After the service everyone is invited to enjoy a free, celebratory meal at the MOCC. After lunch, tours of the current WLGBC facilities will be offered, along with a presentation by Dr. Terry White on the history of WLGBC. The day will be capped off with an ice cream social at the church building.
