Kingsmen Offering 2019

Offerings received: $79,705 A Story of Successful Presbyterian Church Planting It would seem that the 9,200 residents of Reedsburg, WI have all the options for worship they need, but sadly, South-central WI is lacking a truly Reformed presence. Nearly twenty years ago, a few reformed Christians were traveling an hour to worship at the OPC in Madison, WI and concluded that Reedsburg needed a Reformed church. Seeds Planted After weighing the denominational options, this core group chose to plant the time-tested and fruitful seeds of Westminster theology and Presbyterian government. Grace Reformed Church, a member congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church within the Presbytery of the Midwest, was planted and it quickly began to grow.

A negative effect was that it occasionally gave the unfortunate impression of impermanency to those whom they sought to reach with the Gospel. By Their Fruits Whatever outward impressions may have been, the impact of this church has been undeniable with sinners saved, saints sanctified, and Christ’s Body fully engaged in the work of ministry. As Christ said, “Ye shall know them by their fruits.” Prepared Ground Grace Reformed Church has investigated several properties over the years, but it appears that God was preparing a perfect spot all along: The Reedsburg Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.   The members of Grace Reformed Church believe this ground has been prepared for them and...
