Dear Friend,

Hello, I hope this letter finds you well.  I would like to introduce myself.  My name is James Siekbert Jr.  I am the pastor of Chippewa Lake Baptist Church.  I am the second of 7 children born to Jim and Judy Siekbert in Cincinnati, Ohio.   Growing up in Milford, Ohio my family attended the First Baptist Church where Dr. Charles Keen was Pastor.  I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour there as a young person and surrendered to preach as a teen.  God used the messages, the opportunities for service, the missions emphasis and Bible printing emphasis to greatly influence my life.  I attended  Tennessee Temple University and learned under the ministry of Dr. Lee Roberson where I further grew in the Lord.  I married my wife, Debbie in 1981.  We will be married for 34 years in June. We have 4 daughters and 2 sons, a daughter-in-law, three son-in-laws and 6 grandsons.  I have pastored at CLBC for 25 years.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            We are a friendly church located 4.5 miles south of Medina Square.  We are a church that believes in the transforming power of Jesus Christ and we are a church that believes in the power of God’s word.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to worship with us.  Whether you are a new follower of Christ, a Christian looking for a loving church home or just curious about the Jesus of the Bible, we would love to have you visit us!  Our church is a church of diversity; families, single parents, college and career age, teenagers, children and the list goes on, but we are all one family that worships God together.  The worship service is exciting yet, God-pleasing.  Whether it be our Kids for Christ for k4-6th grade, or maybe the Youth Ministry for all 7th – 12th grade or even the Solid Rockers group for mature adults, there is certainly a place for you and your family to experience the love of Jesus.

It would be our greatest pleasure if you honored us with a visit.  Please feel free to drop by for ANY service.  I know that if you give us a visit, you will find that God is truly Touching Hearts and Changing Lives at Chippewa Lake Baptist Church.

God Bless,

Pastor James R. Siekbert, Jr.
