“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants”
Ps 116:15

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear sister, Mary Grace Goodnow, a cherished Christian sister and member of West Side Baptist Church in Topeka. She departed this earthly life for the Kingdom of God on Sunday, November 28, 2023. While we grieve her passing, we also celebrate the promise of eternal life given to her by God in Jesus Christ, our Lord, to all who believe!

With deepest condolences,
Pastor Ivan+

ADVENT is the four weeks of prayer and preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus leading up to Christmas. “Advent” in Latin literally means “coming” or “arrival.”

The Church has looked ahead to Jesus Christ’s Second Coming since his ascension in the first century. The angels told his Apostles, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will return in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” God promised Jesus would return. As faithful followers of Jesus, we hold to that promise: JESUS is COMING!
