On January 31, 2010, Lakewood Baptist Church held a chartering service, with over 40 believers signing as charter members. Pastor David Marriott began holding Bible studies in Delafield in 2009 as a prelude to planting the church. Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown provided support as a “mother church” and helped with organizational, financial and practical help. Dr. Marty Marriott spoke in the Sunday School hour, and Dr. Robert Loggans preached in the morning service. Following a fellowship meal, church members gathered at a nearby motel pool for a baptismal service for 8 believers. We rejoice in the healthy start for a strong fundamental Baptist church in this populated and needy area.
