    Special Worship and Bible Study News

    Coming this WEEK - ENGAGING The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
    Join us for our fall class based on the bestselling book by Steven R. Covey. Learn to engage these simple but powerful habits - they will weave themselves into your faith-life. This class will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6-7:30pm for six evenings beginning  October 6 (this will also be the topic of discussion for the 9am Tuesday Bible Study group beginning October 5). Call the church office to reserve your seat. Members and non-members are welcome. The only cost is your time and effort! Call (920) 468-4065. Pastor Dave is the guide for this course. Zoom is an option for Wednesday nights; you must call the office to be placed on the email list to receive the Zoom link.

    Newsletter Delay
    Don't look for the October newsletter yet...it will be out when Michelle returns from vacation the week of October 4. I apologize but schedules just did not work out for it to be done before I left the office.

              Thursday 12:15pm and Sunday 7:45am - Masks required (unless age 2 or under); social distancing; no singing. Communion will be served in the pews with the prefilled cups.

Pastor will also visit you at home; call the office anytime to schedule.
