Christmas Around the World


“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
John 3:16

“When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy-and they knelt down and worshiped him.”
Matthew 2:10-11
 

Volunteers Still Needed

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.


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 fumcwausau.org. 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.

Making Sense of the Bible

Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today


Starts Wednesday, January 10th at 5 p.m. Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will go to hell? Were Adam and Eve real people? Is the book of Revelation really about the end times? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong?

In this book study (and in approachable language), Adam Hamilton addresses these and other often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

You may buy a book through the church - $9, paid by Dec. 20; or you may buy the book online. Please let the church office know you’ll be attending (and which session, even if you buy your book elsewhere.)

Other possible sessions (depending upon sign-up) include:

Tuesdays at 2 p.m. beginning January 9th
Thursdays at 11 a.m. beginning January 11th
 

All Creation Sings

This is the theme for our children’s music time for the coming year. Children’s music is for those children in kindergarten through fifth grade. This year we will be moving across and down the hall to room 215. Stay tuned for more details.


VBS as a Success!

We had a great week of VBS (Vacation Bible School) with 25 children who attended. Please see the pictures below. Kirsten Hornby did a wonderful job of preparing our evening meals with the help of Anna Schreiber and others. Meagan Fandrey, Bonnie Goertz, Carrie and Ruby Edmundson, and Jackie, Gwen and Ginnie Chang did an awesome job of leading activities and shepherding children. Thank you to all who participated!
