Please know that even though most of our staff is working from home these days, you can still call the church office during regular office hours and communicate with all staff via email and phone.

Bishop Jung Announces Possible Date for In-Building Worship

See Bishops Letter Here


We would also like to share a document with you that we have received from our Wisconsin Annual Conference a while ago. It is a visual that spells out what can and can't be done. Please know that this document was developed BEFORE the Wisconsin Supreme court decision regarding the governor's safe-at-home order which changes the way how our denomination is going about in person worship. We wanted to share the document with you anyway because it gives an understanding of the type of restrictions and safety measures churches are dealing with.

Congratulations to our Graduates!
