Our next quarterly meeting will be on September 13 at Rolling Hills Church in Platteville where Pastor Matt Wunderlin and his congregation will be hosting us.   Clint Calvert of the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention will be our featured speaker sharing with us how to move to a culture of discipleship.  I really want to encourage all of our churches to be part of this event because Clint will be sharing many resources from Lifeway and Real Life Ministries that are new to us and will be very helpful in making disciples in our churches.

“Planting and Developing Prevailing Churches” July 2014 Newsletter
missions efforts are in high gear this summer
Missions efforts are in high gear this summer as we have been receiving help from summer missionaries and mission teams.   Many of our churches are doing Vacation Bible School to engage their communities to reach children and parents.   We are thankful for the many gospel seeds being planted and growing.  One story of a person who has come to Christ this summer is Justin.  Read more in this newsletter for his story……
transitions
This month we are saying goodbye to two people who have served in our association for a long time. Amanda Miller, our office manager for the past 10 years, is leaving and Pastor Chad Cummings from Three Rivers Fellowship Church in La Crosse is leaving after planting the church and serving there since 2007 with his family.   We will miss them both!

On Saturday, July 12, 2014 the members of East Madison Baptist Church came together to prepare for a block party with more than 30 people from a mission team in North Carolina.    There was rain that started to come down as soon as the block party started to get set up in the side yard.   With that in mind members of the Greater Cleveland County Baptist Association mission team took their places around the church building and began to pray for the members  of East Madison Baptist Church and the community of Madison.    After being in the rain for two hours and no one coming everyone decided they would reschedule for Sunday.

On Sunday the block party was rescheduled for 6:00 p.m.   At 4:00 p.m.  more than 50 people from both groups gathered to pass out flyers in the streets surrounding the church.    More than 200 people came to the block party with many people staying past dark.  Several people accepted Christ during the block party.    The members of East Madison Baptist Church did a great job engaging their neighbors sharing with them about the church and finding out about the people who live right next to their building.

We found this block party to be a work of the grace of God.   Not only was the block party not cancelled due to rain but the time was a resounding success.   Members of East Madison took the time to be trained on Saturday night how to encounter people.   Then they followed through by meeting and getting to know their neighbors in a way they had never done before that time.    God uses simple tools like block parties to share the gospel and help our churches reach out to those who are close to them but far from God.
