The Pivet Scholarship Committee has chosen this year’s recipient and congratulates Danielle Del Conte. Danielle is a 4.0 student, number 1 in her class, active in the community and in church. She plans to attend Marquette University in the fall, to study environmental engineering and ways to increase food yields to fight hunger.
 

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.

Core Questions

Sundays, 8:45am
BK Smith Room
 
You know that Pastor Jerry likes teaching. It isn’t a need exactly. He could give it up any time he wanted. And really he only teaches socially, so it’s totally all right, and he does not need another intervention, all right?

But as the time of transition approaches, he is having a last hurrah and teaching one of his favorite classes, the “Core Questions” class. This class explores some of the key issues of Christianity (or, really, of any faith) in the context of a historical time period in which that issue became especially significant. Coming in May:

May 7: How Should the Church Relate to Society?

May 14: How Are People Saved?

May 21: How De We Decide What’s Right?

May 28: Is Salvation Limited?
 

Recognizing Sunday School Teachers

 
We will recognize all of our Sunday School teachers in the 10:00am worship service  on Sunday, May 21st. Thank you for your leadership and commitment  to the Faith Formation of our members.

Family Camp will be July 21-23 at Pine Lake Wildwood Campground. The cost is $70 per camper vehicle and $35 per tent. A deposit of $35 for camper vehicles and $20 for tents is due on April 30. If you have not paid the deposit but want to attend, please contact Martie at the church office.



Messy Church, May 3
The Symbol Truth


Join us on Wednesday, May 3, at 5:15pm for the last “Messy Church” of the spring. We will be exploring symbols:
 

What they are
Why we need them
How they enrich our faith


We will celebrate the ancient Hippolytus Communion Service.
