Sunday August 17th we were at Cottage Grove Baptist Church for the morning services. Mike Brill is the pastor of this local church. Carole provided keyboard assistance and special music for the morning service. I presented and update on our ministry by power point and preached for the service as well.
Mike and Nancy Brill had a full weekend as on Saturday their son Jordon was married to Rebecca Kobosh, pastor’s daughter to Vince and Beth Kobosh from Rock Lake Baptist Church in Lake Mills. It was a beautiful celebration of two young people committed to Christ and upholding the biblical principles of marriage.
Cottage Grove Baptist Church was begun October 2000 while I was pastoring in Lake Mills. Rock Lake Baptist Church was the reproducing church and we worked with the Brills to see that work established. In a couple of months CGBC will celebrate their 9th anniversary. They are still in need of growth to be fully self supported and they are meeting in rented quarters. However, we praise the Lord for the lives that have been affected by this greater-Madison church and trust the Lord for continued effective ministry in the future.
