The Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association will conduct the first quarterly meeting of the year at East Madison Baptist Church on 4917 E. Milwaukee St. on Saturday, January 22. Pastors and lay leaders are invited to participate in the meeting. Refreshments and lunch will be provided by East Madison Baptist.
Leo Endel, Executive Director of the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention, will be our guest speaker. Back in May of 2010, our pastors heard Leo share at our annual pastors’ retreat. After hearing Leo share about the Cooperative Program and how missions works in churches and around the world, they asked Leo if he could return to share more about how our churches can be involved.
As we have prepared for this meeting here is what Leo shared in his own words with us about the content of the meeting:
“Last words are important. Jesus spent three years ‘making his disciples’ then he challenged his disciples to ‘make disciples’ among all peoples. They responded and changed the world. If they could do it then, imagine what the possibilities are today. Let’s talk about the challenges and the possibilities of what we can do together. Let’s embrace Jesus’ command and find our place in His ongoing mission in your community, in Southern Wisconsin, in North America and in the world.”
We encourage you to join us on Saturday, January 22 for this very important meeting to kick off the year in 2011. Here will be the schedule for the day:
9:00 a.m. – Refreshments, Registration, and Fellowship
10:00 a.m. – Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association Quarterly Meeting
12:00 p.m. – Lunch
1:00 p.m. – Dismiss
