Live and Share God's Love



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.



Mission Opportunity


The Missions team is planning a Volunteers in Mis-sion (VIM) trip to the Red Cliff Band Reservation in Bayfield County from Sunday, June 21, 2020 to Fri-day, June 26, 2020.

The purpose of the trip is to serve the residents of the reservation and deepen the relationship with the Native American community there. There is something for everyone to do as the needs vary from repairs, to ramp construction, to helping with daily tasks when needed. There is always an abundance of cultural ex-change on this trip. This will be an adult/youth trip with a minimum age of 14.

The team from our church will be joining United Methodists from throughout the state. If you are interested or would like to ask any questions, please con-tact Wes Ebert at or 715-409-6077.

Cost is $150 for the week but scholarship opportunities are available. We haven’t set a deadline for signing up, but the spots usually fill up quickly, so prayer-fully consider this opportunity and let us know as soon as possible.

Community Dinner

The community dinner is an exciting ministry with food and fellowship! We serve the dinner at the Presbyterian church. The 2020 dates are as follows: Jan 26, March 29, May 31, Aug 30 and Nov 29.

Please note the January date is not the 5th Sunday as is our usual practice. We helped out another group that needed to switch so in January it is the 4th Sunday. That is the only change for 2020. The December 2019 will not be done as we are doing the January 2020 instead.

Display Cases

Would you like to display something in one of the cases outside the office? We would love to see it! Artwork; Collections; Antiques; Photos; anything you’d like to share. Please contact the church office at 715.842.2201.

Wednesday Night Live. Most weeks during the school year, we offer at 5 p.m. both children’s music and a study conversation. At 6:00 we come together for a meal. Afterward, Jubilate Handbells, then Chancel Choir rehearse. Come, bring a friend, eat, and enjoy some fellowship.

Music Ministry is a vital part of the life of the church, providing musical leadership for our worship experience.

Chancel Choir sings at 10 a.m. most Sundays September through May and at special services during the year. Singers 6th grade through adults are welcome.

Jubilate Handbells are a 5 octave handbell choir that plays throughout the year.

Children’s Music is for those kindergarten through 5th grade. We learn about God through singing and playing music. We meet for 10-12 weeks, fall thru spring.

Faith Formation is about growing as disciples –learning about God, ourselves, and the ways God calls us to live in the world. Classes and small groups are open for children aged 3 through adult.
