The Grace Brethren church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (Gary Austin, pastor)is celebrating
60 years of ministry this coming Sunday, November 30, 2008! Special guest is former pastor Gary Kochheiser. He will be sharing his experiences in the Holy Land during Sunday School and then preaching during the morning service. The theme for the day is Give Thanks to the Lord!
Greetings will be read during the morning worship service, and after the morning service, there will be a “light lunch.” After that, there will be a time for reading of greetings, showing of pictures (a presentation that Steve Ciha has put together), and eating dessert. Arnold Kriegbaum was the founding pastor of the Cedar Rapids church.
