Pastor Aaron Ramquist delivers a Bible based message on generosity  Many people who have been looking for a church that preaches the Word have joined Rock of Hope Church.

Aaron and Amanda Ramquist started Rock of Hope Church with the intention of making disciples in the Lake Delton and Wisconsin Dells region.










A church begins when God gives one person or one couple a vision to start a new church that will reach new people.    That took place when Aaron and Amanda Ramquist started working in the Wisconsin Dells region in the Spring of 2015.    Their church, Rock of Hope Church, is now made up of many new people who have not been involved in a thriving local, Bible believing church.

This church now meets in downtown Wisconsin Dells in a temporary location.    Please for Rock of Hope Church as they search for a longer term solution to where they can meet on Sunday mornings.    Pray also God continues to draw people to the redemptive message of the Gospel through this local body of believers.  For more information on this strategic church go to

Dear Friends in Christ, As we come to the end of 2016 the Lord has helped us to see three new churches get started here in our association.    We are thankful for God’s favor on us and for sending us new laborers for the harvest.   We have chosen this newsletter to highlight these three churches.  We take note that all 29 of our churches have been partners in this effort along with our partners across North America.    You can read about these churches in this final 2016 edition …….

As we near the end of 2016 we see that the need for the Gospel of Jesus Christ is more urgent than ever before in our lifetime.  In 2016 the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association helped to facilitate three new churches getting started.  New churches do very well at reaching unchurched people and those without the good news of Jesus Christ.

One church that is now started in our our association is Resonate Church in Janesville, Wisconsin.  In this picture you see Pastor Jesse Beernink baptizing one of the children in the church.    We believe that Resonate Church has already made a difference in the life of this young man and will for years to come.

There are ways you can help us to continue to plant new churches and resource our existing churches.   Prayer, people, and provisions continues to be our motto.   As 2016 draws to a close we are asking prayerfully if you will consider giving any amount to the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association.    You can go online to our main page at and give through our Donate link.   Your gifts are an investment in eternity as we  see lives changed through the power of the Gospel.
