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.

The Wired WORD logo

Do you struggle to see current events from a faith perspective? Come, give The Wired WORD a try! This study – for adults and youth  – is new each week with each week’s topic coming straight from the headlines. We look at the news story, then at some bible lessons and questions as we work to see what’s happening from a faith perspective. Come and give it a try. There is NO homework. All you have to do is be in the room by 9 a.m. on a Sunday morning – grab some coffee and join in – or 5 p.m. on Wednesday evening. Pastor Jayneann will be the facilitator for the first few weeks. We’ll meet in Room 101 past the offices, beginning September 10 and 13.


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!
