Two new churches have officially joined the Central Baptist Association. Blue River Valley Church of Muscoda and Waterbrook Community Bible Church of Tomah are now member churches of the CBA. Both churches were voted by the messengers of the annual meeting gathered at Rolling Hills Church in Platteville. All 56 messengers were in unanimous in their decision and welcomed them with a standing ovation.
Blue River Valley Church is located southwest of the town of Muscoda. This church was started in 1871 and they have many members who still have a Bohemian background. John Huss is central historical figure in their church. Paul Fries has been the interim pastor of Blue River Valley Church for over a year now.
Waterbrook Community Bible Church is located in the residential area of Tomah. Pastor John Schmidt and his wife Jan started this work five years ago. This past summer a team of 18 people from the Family Fest event helped to put a new roof on their building and also helped to renovate the inside of their building. In September an Experiencing God team led a weekend that now has many of their members going through Experiencing God this Fall.
For more information on both of these churches you can find them on the web at www.bluerivervalleychurch.org and www.waterbrooktomah.org. We are grateful the Lord has added to our number in the CBA through these two precious churches.
