Sunday October 31st we were at Cottage Grove Baptist Church. Mike Brill is the pastor of this local church ministry in the greater Madison area. Carole provided keyboard assistance for the service. I preached for the Morning Service and taught Sunday School following, in addition to presenting our ministry DVD.
October 29th was the tenth anniversary of the first public services of Cottage Grove Baptist Church. At the time I was pastor of Rock Lake Baptist Church in Lake Mills and we functioned as the reproducing church. Mike and Nancy had been saved through our ministry in Lake Mills a decade earlier and Mike became the mission pastor for the new work. Though the church is still meeting in rented quarters and is small in number, we knew that it would be a challenge to start a church in the Madison area. Continue to pray for this ministry that it might continue to see growth in reaching families in Cottage Grove and the Madison area.
