Opportunites

Here at First United Methodist Church, a person has all sorts of ways to serve – inside the building and in the wider communities, with indoor quiet work, with tasks that involve sweat equity. There are ways for each person to contribute to building God’s realm on earth. Below are just a few of the ways.
 

A Chance to Support Claire thru Helping at St. Jude’s

With Claire Hornby, a member of our church family, at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital many of you have grown interested in supporting this medical facility.

Naturally, we pray for the Hornby/Strong family. Yet, we want to do more. Some of you have donated toward the costs the family has and will continue to incur. Lin Strong has supplied us with another possibility! Tri Delta Place, one of the places they stayed has a Wish List!

Sermon Manuscripts

 
Did you know that paper copies are available of each Sunday’s sermons from that day through the following Wednesday on the table in the parlor. This can be a helpful tool for those with hearing challenges as well as for those you know who cannot make it to church but do not have access to the sermons online.
 
(Sunday’s sermons are posted on the church website, usually the following Monday.)
 

A Note from Pastor Jayneann

 

It seems to me that as faithful people, as Christians,  as church people, we should all be on  the prayer chain. We should all pray for  the needs that arise in and through our church.  So, as your spiritual leaders, I’ve made an executive decision.  Beginning July 1st, all persons who are a part of the  church and have email may receive emails (no more  than weekly) about prayer needs. If you would like to be excluded

(if, for instance, you feel you cannot be counted on to maintain confidentiality), please email me. No questions asked.


 

Display Cases

Would you like to display something in the case outside the office? We would love to see it!
 
Artwork; Collections; Antiques; Photos; anything you’d like to share.
 
Please contact the church at 715-842-2201 or Mike Zahn (715-302-5164) to make arrangements.


…the Human One didn’t come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.

 Mark 10:45


Homelessness

 
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, homelessness is defined as lacking

housing, whether the person sleeps on the streets, in a shelter, or in the homes of friends and family members.

During Vacation Bible School last year, homelessness took on a different face for me when one of the elementary school aged kids said matter-of-factly that she and her mom were sleeping on her aunt’s sofa. They’d slept in the car last week.

Vacation Bible School is in August, at Emmanuel Lutheran Church this year. How many of the youngsters who come will be - or will have been - homeless? On July 24th, First United Methodist Church of Wausau will be hosting the people who go out into our neighborhoods to make a homeless count. Anyone is welcome to join them. Contact Pam Anderson at the United Way to see how you can get involved.
