Live and Share God's Love

Faith Formation

We are called upon by God to practice stewardship of the resources with which we have been gifted. This includes how we apportion our time, our energy and our financial resources, not just at church but in all of our earning, spending and saving.
With that in mind, for the next few months we are offering monthly suggestions for personal financial stewardship. From the Dave Ramsey website, here is your second installment:

Save on insurance with an Endorsed Local Provider (ELP).
Are you paying too much for insurance? Are you sure? A lot of people don’t actually realize how much money they can save by taking a deeper look at their insurance expenses. Trying to make sense of it all on your own can be overwhelming, so give an ELP a call to see if they can help sort it out for you.

Regressive Dinner

Saturday, March 21st

Do you love dessert? Then join the youth group Saturday, March 21st for a Regressive Dinner. We'll start with Dessert and work backwards to Appetizers at 4 different homes. Open to 6th-12th grade and ages 18- 99. If you are young at heart, we'd love for you to join us. Bring a friend.

Plan to meet at church at 4 pm. Drivers are provided. We will end around 7 pm.

Please RSVP to Sheryl Del Conte at 715.551.9024 or by Sunday, March 15th.

Children’s Music

We will NOT meet on March 27th due to Spring Break. The children will be singing in the 10:00a.m. service on Easter Sunday.

Wednesday Night Live Meals

We have kept our meal prices the same for over a decade, however, our costs have continued to increase. Therefore a new price plan is being implemented as follows:

Ages 11 and up $7.00
Ages 6-10 $5.00
Ages 2-5 $3.00
Family maximum $20.00

Please plan to join us for food and fellowship on Wednesdays this fall!

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!
