Faith Formation

Confirmation

 
We will be confirming four young people on June 4th in our 10:00am worship service. Each of them has been working with a mentor for the last six months to a year to complete the various benchmarks that are required, and they are now making public their desire to become a part of this congregation. The four young people are James Duginski, Hannah Marquardt, Cooper Stamp, and Wynter Tesch.
 
 
 
 

Hymn Sing

 
We did not get to everybody’s favorite hymn last summer. So, on Sunday, July 2nd, we are going to have a hymn sing and sing those hymns we have not gotten to yet. We will also sing those hymns that were requested multiple times last summer. Come to make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
 
 
 
 

VBS

(Vacation Bible School)

 We will be doing a joint VBS with First Presbyterian Church the week of August 20th. I will be meeting with their Sunday School Coordinator on May 30th to discuss dates, times, and materials. Watch for details in the next “Messenger” and the Sunday bulletins.

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.
