We want to periodically highlight some of the ministries that we support here at County Line. This week we want to talk about Safe Families, a worldwide organization started in 2002. This ministry was started because there was was a need for reliable support when families are going through hard times. Safe Families came to…

A few months ago, we were challenged as a church to “Engage: Garrett,” as a way to connect and serve the communities around County Line.  Several people have taken advantage of this through the restore grants.  As we continue to engage the community of Garrett we need to be aware of the needs and respond…

In 2009, we made a decision to transition our mission’s strategy as, what I call, a transaction to structuring missions as a relationship. What I didn’t know at the time, but now know, is that this paradigm shift meant that we would work side by side with missionaries and mission leaders. Over the last eight…

I (Chris Kaczmarek) recently went on a trip to Rwanda in East Africa to visit Land of a Thousand Hills coffee (the same coffee that we serve in our Restoration Cafe). There were only two of us from County Line, but we partnered with a church from South Carolina. If you don’t know much about…

(If you haven’t read Part One of my report, click on this link here.) A typical Roundtable consists of 3W missionary updates, country updates, Project Link updates financial updates, and case studies. Also, there are site-seeing and site visits from the host church and missionaries. 3W Missionary Updates There are currently six missionary families on…

Our annual Faith in Action Sunday went down as a great success! It was such a blessing for me (Pastor Chris) to see how County Line gets passionate about serving our community. I just keep going back to Matthew 9:38 which Pastor Stu challenged us with a few months ago. “So pray to the Lord…

Lenses There are two lenses we look through when it comes to the type of missions we connect with as a church. One lens is partnering with ministries that work with vulnerable children. The other lens is partnering with ministries that work alongside local churches and leaders on a global platform. In this context, we…

Our annual Faith in Action is just around the corner (May 27 & 28th), and I thought I’d take this time to talk about some of the projects we have and why we do this event. We have over 25 projects this year! I wanted to mention some of the new ones that we have…

County Line Ministry Partner, 3W, just finished hosting their second Leadership Network. County Line has played a role in both of these network meetings. I was not able to attend the 2017 meetings. However, I was able to participate in 2015. Below is a summary of my 2015 trip. This year, County Line was able…

Our annual Faith in Action weekend is coming up in about a month (May 27th & 28th).  This is the one Sunday a year where we don’t have services, but instead, we go out and serve the communities surrounding County Line.  Faith in Action is intentionally scheduled for Memorial Day weekend while you are with…

We want to thank all of you for the concern and prayers that you have expressed for us and for Christians in Egypt in the last 24 hours through emails and social media. The two bombing attacks of Coptic churches during Palm Sunday worship were unexpected tragedies that have saddened the whole country. First of…

I’ve (Pastor Chris) recently had the privilege to meet with each of our local compassion partners. I plan to begin talking about each of them through the next few months. Last week I was able to take a tour of the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission and their facilities with Bob Herman. The Rescue Mission is…

(Above picture: Kayla, holding her water bottle, is pictured with students from County Line. These students, and parents, volunteer once a month.) Every Sunday morning at 8:00 am, the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission opens up their doors for homeless men and women to join in a church gathering that consists of worship, a sermon, fellowship,…

In late February, a men’s team from County Line left for Village of Hope Guatemala. Most of us didn’t know each other, but within a weeks time we would know each other well and have helped a ministry through construction projects. The first night we got there we went through a sort of orientation where…

Last month, I (Pastor Nathan) had the opportunity to visit a new ministry in Paris with our ministry partner, Patrick Nachtigall of Three Worlds. Rather than re-write a trip summary, I thought it best to use Patrick’s report in his most recent newsletter. Stay tuned as we continue to identify ways in which County Line can work…

Yesterday, Pastor Stuart Kruse, sent out this letter explaining the upcoming Peace Out Event. We hope you will attend! Moms: Last year, in order to benefit Destiny Rescue, County Line hosted a Father/Daughter dance that was a huge success! Now it’s your turn! On Saturday, January 21 at County Line Church from 5:00-7:00 p.m., we…
