Sunday April 10th we were ministering at Shawano Baptist Church. Matthew Weber is the pastor of this local church ministry. Pastor Weber was out of state speaking in another church. Shawano Baptist Church is our latest church planting ministry, started in August 2015.
Shawano Baptist Church is making good progress with reaching people in the Shawano area. They have seen an attendance of 40 in at least one service. A number of students from Baptist College of Ministry drive up every weekend to assist in the ministry. They have found their current location is not large enough to deal with their ministry, and so they have chosen another larger facility which they will begin using June 1st. Also Pastor Dave Barba of Press On Ministries and founding pastor of Falls Baptist Church will be coming this month to spend time assisting this new ministry.
We attended Sunday School and I preached for the AM Service. There were about thirty people present with about five families or individuals from the community. Pray for this new work as they seek to win people to the Lord and see a strong local church established in Shawano.
