Pathfinders Help Bring about Lacey Baptisms
Little did the Lacey (Wash.) Church Swordbearer Pathfinder Club and Jason Canfield, Lacey Church pastor, know that, when they decided to sing Christmas carols in the adjacent neighborhood last December, one of the people who listened and received a Discover Bible School card would become a member of their church just seven months later.
On July 29, 2017, Canfield baptized Patricia Rabbit, who sent in the Bible study request card and had been studying with retired physician Ronald Case, Lacey Church’s Discover Bible School director, and helpers Laura Bullard and Delores Martin, as well as other Lacey Church members who accompanied Case on the Bible studies when their schedules allowed. Rabbit began attending church regularly and said she is really enjoying Bullard’s Sabbath School class as well as the sermons by Canfield. She is continuing to study the Bible weekly with Case and his helpers.
One of the Pathfinders, Jack Pecheco, who also serves as a junior deacon, was baptized that day too. His parents, Mardi and Jim Pacheco, are members of the Lacey Church. “I want to do more church work,” the younger Pacheco said during his baptism. He has already been involved in many church activities.
Lacey members are praising the Lord for these new church members.
