For many years Lighthouse Baptist Church in Souris, Prince Edward Island, Canada, has been receiving free Regular Baptist Press Sunday School and VBS materials from Gospel Literature Services. Millions of dollars’ worth of such material has helped hundreds of Sunday Schools and VBS programs around the world during churches’ formative years.
Lynne Gragtmans, pastor’s wife at the church, writes, “We want to thank you and all the people that have contributed to making this material available to our church. We just want you to know that without this material we would never have been able to purchase it for ourselves. Regular Baptist Press is wonderful material, very thorough and easy to follow. This has been a blessing to our first-time teachers who have had to learn how to teach using these products.”
One young man is finishing his first year at Bible school, having left Lighthouse Baptist Church well trained in the Bible, “thanks to great materials and great people who invested in his life,” Lynne says.
Pastor Bart and Lynne Gragtmans both left veterinary careers to lead Lighthouse Baptist. In 2000, Bart says, God opened his eyes to the need for more churches that are based on the Bible. So he began taking seminary courses while working as a veterinarian. He completed his studies in 2003, was ordained in 2005, and began working as assistant pastor at Lighthouse Baptist that same year. Now as pastor of the church, having accepted the role in 2006, his burden is for people to trust Christ as their Savior and grow spiritually. Regular Baptist Press is helping in that endeavor, as it aims to build lives by the Book.
Lynne says, “We thank you from Canada and look forward to dealing with you in the future.”
