Church info: Community Baptist Church is a small church with a heart to reach out to the various groups of foreign refugees in its small Midwestern town. They are in the midst of a replant of a church that had fallen on hard times and was running just a handful of people. They currently have about 30 Karen refugees from Myanmar and four Caucasian families as part of the church. Weekly services are held with a translator and the musical worship is in Karen and English simultaneously. They are partnering with a local college to hold English classes in hopes of reaching Somalis, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders with the love of Christ. They also have a VBS scheduled in September. Please pray for the Karen people to grow in their faith. Also pray for the local Somali community who are 100% unreached. Pray that they find “the man of peace” where and that the gospel will take root.
