  • Today we are all celebrate the life Frank Bauman. We are there in spirit with you. We pray for his family and pray that God will hold you close in the coming days. ~ Ron and Marva Letellier Sturgis, SD (11/9/2019)
  • Frank was a godly man who leaves a godly heritage. It is as Solomon says, " The memory of the righteous is a blessing..." Proverbs 10:7 He would be the first to acknowledge that he was saved entirely by grace and the only way he could live the Christian life was by the sustaining power of the living Christ.
    Frank was a man who was more interested in laying up his treasure in heaven than he was in laying up his treasure on earth. "Well done good and faithful servant."
