November 13th we were ministering at First Baptist Church in Waupaca. Tyler Snell is the Interim Pastor at First Baptist as they are in the process of seeking a senior pastor. I taught a Bible lesson on “Our Response to Government” for Sunday School. In the AM Service I shared our DVD promo video and giving a report of our ministry as well as preaching for the service.
First Baptist Church has the distinction of being the place where the WFBC was birthed in 1950. In January 1950 a number of pastors and their wives met for a two-day meeting to address the concerns of Baptist Churches in Wisconsin at that time. The outcome of the meeting was the formation of the Conservative Baptist Association of Wisconsin with five churches as the initial affiliated ministries. In 1968 this body voted to remove themselves from the CBA and become the Wisconsin Fellowship of Baptist Churches. In September of this year First Baptist Church hosted the 66th Annual Meeting of the WFBC.
