For the evening service on the Lord's Day, we traveled just a few minutes to Connecticut and joined Pastor Tim Gingarella and North Stonington Baptist Church for their evening service. We arrived at this historic church to find out that this church was started in 1828 and the main building is the original structure. When the church was started, it was called Third Baptist Church (a church plant from First Baptist Church a few minutes down the road). This First Baptist Church was Shubal Stearns home church before he left for Sandy Creek, North Carolina in the mid 1700's to start a church. From the church in Sandy Creek, Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church (our home church) was established in 1779. What an awesome connection!!! We thank the Lord for the warm welcome and fellowship we were able to have at this church as we shared our burden.
Please continue praying as we continue to travel in New England. Pray churches will gain a burden for the United Kingdom .
