During the summer months, from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, we celebrate with one service on Sunday mornings at 10:00.


Our annual Spring Congregational Meeting is scheduled for Sunday morning, June 24. The only item of business is the election of Church Council Officers and Team Representatives.


Rev. Craig Modahl will be conducting another Sunday Evening Service on Sunday, June 24, at 7:00, in Fellowship Hall. Please help spread the word!


Every year, members and friends of our church participate in charitable fundraising events (walks, runs, bike rides, etc.) helping to raise thousands of dollars for a variety of worthy causes. As a church community, we support these efforts by contributing $100 per event from our Local Mission Fund. If you are planning to participate in one of these fundraisers, please complete and submit the Charitable Fundraiser Contribution Request form.


The United Church of Christ has two wonderful camps. Pilgrim Center is located on Green Lake near Ripon, and Moon Beach is located way up north near St. Germain. You can visit for more information. Please contact Amy Gilhooly, our Communication Director, if you have any questions (


Men in the church are invited to gather for breakfast every Thursday morning, at 8:00, at the Dockside Deli. The group often has fun considering a Question of the Day. If you are able, please come and join the conversation. 


A gentle yoga class is held in Fellowship Hall every Wednesday evening from 5:15 - 6:15. The cost is $10 per class. For more information, please contact Susan Niederfrank at


An AA Group meets at our church every Sunday afternoon at 3:00. For more information, please contact the church office.
