Theology On Tap

Do you like having philosophical/theological conversations with friends amidst laughter, food and drink?

Theology on Tap is your chance to get together for some conversation about the day’s topic, while enjoying a relaxed summertime atmosphere. Enjoy some food or drink, or not, as you choose.

Last time we talked about hatred and acceptance. What’ll we discuss next time? Come and find out!

Next Session … Monday, July 23, 6pm
Location: t.b.a.

Are you in the choir here at church?
Do you sing in the shower?
Do you love to sing but … well, don’t?

Our Summertime Walk-In Choir could be for you.

On July 15 and/or August 26, join the morning’s fun. Come to the sanctuary by 9:30 to run though our song. Sing it during the 10 a.m. worship service. That’s it! Get back to summer.

Family Camp

First Church’s Family Camp will be July 20- 22 at Pine Lake Wildwood Campground this summer. The cost is $70 per camper vehicle and $35 per tent. A deposit of $35 for camper vehicles and $20 for tents is due by April 29.

Everyone is welcome! Make plans now to be a part of this fun-filled weekend.


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!


Vacation Bible School

We will do a joint VBS with First Presbyterian Church again this year. It will be held August 21 - 23, in the evenings at First Presbyterian. The meal will be at 5:00pm and VBS will follow from 5:30-7:30. If you would be willing to volunteer please let Martie or the church office know.
