The Church’s Mission


Mission Nugget

Green Lake Conference Center, Green Lake, Wisconsin

Green Lake Conference Center is a beautiful year-round Christian conference center set on the deepest lake in Wisconsin with a rich and interesting history dating back to the early 1800’s. Winnebago Indians, Pioneer Settlers, a wealthy Chicago couple, a Chicago development company, American Baptist visionaries and Christian leaders of today are all part of this special and spiritual place where God moves and people connect. Our mission is to provide a special Christian environment of service, equipping, renewal, and networking that helps to produce more and stronger disciples and churches. Founded by the American Baptist in 1943, the conference center now reaches out to partner with American Baptist and a wide range of other Christian organizations to build God’s kingdom.


Mission Receipts

On December 29th another $10 was received for the RMM Offering, bringing the total to $845. In addition, $84 was received towards our budgeted obligations. Thank you to all who have given so generously this year to help those beyond our church community.
