Pastor Dave reminds us that deer season will begin Thursday, and the following week will be Thanksgiving. If you would like a meal sponsored by the church, we are still taking reservations for both pick up / drive through and home delivery for those who are homebound. Please call the church office at 920-743-3241 for more information or to leave your reservation. Our Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner has been a tradition in this church for many, many years. It was normally held in our Fellowship Hall but the past two years we have had to postpone in church dining until hopefully next year when we can enjoy the dinner together again.
Also, we are still offering, for the next several weeks, on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM, an adult study group focusing on the concept of beliefs in the Christian Church. Our worship service will continue at 10:00 AM, however, at some point we will look at having an early service again to see if it can be reinstated based on the availability of ushers, greeters, etc.
During Advent we will be offering a recorded study that comes to us from an interesting approach from the Grinch. His story not unlike Scrooge’s story which lends itself to the advent season. Pastor Dave and his son, who is a pastor in Minnesota, will record it and offer it to you on Facebook, our website and on YouTube. More information to follow.
It is also a prelude to some of the different ways we will be offering Bible Study in the near future. We will be using Zoom so that you can connect remotely for studies from the comfort of your home. Pastor Dave will welcome any ideas on what you you feel would be an interesting study. Just send him an email with questions or ideas.
Pastor Dave would like to discuss our updated visitations policy. Our visitation team has not been active for a year or more due to the pandemic. We would like to begin this service again. If you wish to have a visit either in the hospital for a short or extended stay, we would be happy to visit. Please call or ask a family member / hospital chaplain to contact us at the church office at 920-743-3241 to let us know you request a visit. We will alert visitation team and make every attempt to visit you.
Regarding home visits things are handled differently. We will need you or a loved one to call the church office at 920-743-3241. Unless it is a dire emergency two people will be coming to the visit as a good and safe practice.
If you would like a meeting with Pastor Dave here in the church office, it would be best to call for an appointment instead of stopping by as the office door is only open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. See Pastor Dave’s winter office hours below. Also, Pastor Dave will be setting up Zoom meetings so it will be possible to have a remote private conversation if needed.
