On Sunday June 1st we were able to be a part of the Building Dedication at East Delavan Baptist Church. Pastor Steve Hollenbeck is the pastor of this growing ministry. Pastor Dave Jaspers of Bethel Baptist Church in Schaumburg, Illinois was the speaker for the day. Carole provided music for the services and I brought a greeting from the churches of Wisconsin.
The building dedication was for a Ministry Activity Center adjacent to their church building which includes a gymnasium, two classrooms, kitchen and restrooms. It is a beautiful and functional addition to their multifaceted ministry including outreach to Spanish speaking and the deaf.
The day included regular morning services, a delicious dinner in the new facility and a service in the gym following. It was a great day of celebration after many years of planning and giving and months of waiting on the completion of this project. We commend East Delavan Baptist Church for a job will done.
