Wednesday night meal.

Fruit of the Spirit

This is the theme of our children’s music time for the coming year on Wednesday evenings starting September 12th at 5:00pm. All children in kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to join us upstairs in Room 215 as we learn about God through music.

Sermons All Week... All Year

If you miss a sermon and want to stay current with a series, or review past ones, the text and audio podcast of each week’s message are uploaded to You can find texts and audio for the past two years… you could put together your own private retreat!

Online Connections

Are you a regular user of Facebook? Jen Johnson has offered to help keep our church page updated with short notices of events and occasional announcements.

Let Jen or staff know if you can help with newer lines of communication. There’s a whole generation who may not read The Messenger or church bulletins but may well respond to invitations received on their phone. If you are connected to online worlds, help FUMC connect people through modern means Wesley surely would use today.

Do you like spending time with children? We still need volunteers to be in the Nursery on Sunday mornings during the 10:00am worship service. If you would be willing to give of your time in this way, please contact Martie at the church, 715-842-2201. Thank you!


VBS was a Success!

We had a great three days of VBS (Vacation Bible School) with 32 children who attended. Click on the image abve to see some of the photos. Betsy Duginski and Bonnie Goertz did an awesome job of leading activities. Thank you for involving your children in this joint activity with the First Presbyterian and Immanuel Lutheran Churches.

Wednesday Evening Adult Study

Starting September 12, 5 pm

We will begin our Wednesday evening study time this month with two weeks of conversation around topics found in The Wired Word.

Then on September 26th, we’ll begin our newest study, Christianity and World Religions, a video-based study that explores four major world religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares beliefs of each with those
of Christianity. This is a 6-week study. New and used books are available online or through your local bookseller.
