Volunteers Still Needed

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.


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 fumcwausau.org. 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.

Faith Formation on Sunday Mornings

We have six classes that meet on Sunday mornings for Bible study. The youngest class is the three and four year olds with co-teachers Jen Johnson and Beth Rohland. They currently have six children on roll and meet upstairs in room 214. Then we have the kindergarten and first grade class that has co-teachers Laura Cowan and Betsy Duginski and shepherd Gwen Chang. They have five children on roll and meet in room 216.

Next is our Faith Quest class for second through fifth grades with 11 on roll. Their teachers are Karen Petersen, Meagan Fandrey, and Bonnie Goertz. Their shepherds are Carrie
Hockerman and Sue Marquardt. They are currently learning about Creation but will begin learning about God’s promises to Abraham, Issac and Jacob a little later this month.

Our middle school youth meet with Mike Zahn downstairs in room 15. They have 10 on roll. The high school youth meet with Margaret Getzin in room 13. They have 16 on roll.

And last, but certainly not least, are the adults led by Roger Mittenzwei. They meet in the B.K. Smith room and have 19 on roll.

Thank you to these leaders who have taken on the task of teaching our children, youth and adults. If you are not involved in Bible study on Sunday morning, consider joining a class.


All Creation Sings

This is the theme for our children’s music time for the coming year. Children’s music is for those children in kindergarten through fifth grade. This year we will be moving across and down the hall to room 215. Stay tuned for more details.


VBS as a Success!

We had a great week of VBS (Vacation Bible School) with 25 children who attended. Please see the pictures below. Kirsten Hornby did a wonderful job of preparing our evening meals with the help of Anna Schreiber and others. Meagan Fandrey, Bonnie Goertz, Carrie and Ruby Edmundson, and Jackie, Gwen and Ginnie Chang did an awesome job of leading activities and shepherding children. Thank you to all who participated!
