The children and youth will be presenting a short Christmas program during the 10:00 worship service on Sunday, December 9th.

A big thank you to Mike Zahn and all the Sunday School teachers who have worked to put this together.

Messy Church

Messy Church

We will have a Christmas Messy Church on Wednesday, December 19th at 5:15 pm in the Fellowship Hall.

Invite your family and friends and any children you know to come and join us as we celebrate


Chancel Choir

Rehearses on Wednesday evenings in the chapel at 7:15. If you like to sing, then come and join us as we prepare music for the 10:00 service on Sunday mornings and for Lessons and Carols on December 16th.


Jubilate Bells

The Jubilate Bells will be playing in the 10:00 worship service on November 4th. Come and hear our handbell choir as they ring during this service.


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!


Lessons and Carols

Our Chancel Choir and the Jubilate Handbells have been rehearsing to present music for Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 16th during the 10:00 worship service. In addition to the choir and bells, we will have strings, clarinet and percussion to accompany the carols and anthems. Come and hear the
Christmas story through scripture and carols during this special service of music.
