2 Timothy 3:12-17
Dr. J Robert Cosand
SOLA SCRIPTURA (Scripture Alone)
Verse for the Week
"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" Matthew 6:25-26
Ministering to Detroit’s Eastside Since 1864
The beginnings of our church trail back to 1862 when Karl and Emilie Bock migrated from Germany to Detroit. The Bocks, who were zealous witness for their Lord, established fellowship with other German immigrants who were Baptist. On June 23, 1864, the group of nine believers was formally organized as a church. The early members met in homes until 1870 when a chapel was built at St. Aubin and Mullett. The church was known as the First Regular German Baptist Church of Detroit. Significant activities during the early years included tract distribution as a regular Sunday afternoon pastime, missionary work of students on the west side during summer vacation and the formation of a Women's Missionary Society.

Greetings to all you faithful friends who follow the pathway the Hardemans have chosen. ln my last communication I told of planning to come to the States to enjoy the Christmas season. Some of you may recall the other special celebration we enjoy at this time of year – our wedding anniversary is Christmas Eve.
Well this year was unique all right. On our anniversary Jan became so weak she had to be hospitalized. What she thought was a severe asthma attack turned out to be congenital heart failure. She was put on oxygen, numerous tests were done, multiple medications were prescribed, and a week later she was stabilized enough to come back to TJ and Cindy's. They have been so helpful in every way. We praise the Lord for their loving touch.
