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!

Wednesday Evening Adult Study

On September 26th, we began our latest study, Christianity and World Religions. This video-based study explores the four major other world religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This is a 6-week study. You could ask Janke’s to order a copy of the book for you or get one online. (You are welcome to join us even if you cannot make time to read a book this fall.
