Don Laubenstein, a longtime member of our church, is also an active member of the Metro Model Railroad Club. Don has offered to give us a tour of the model railroad layout in the basement of the Harbor Club this coming Wednesday morning, July 19. We will meet in the church parking lot at 10:30 a.m. The building is fully accessible and the tour will last about an hour. For more information, please contact Louise Mollinger at (414) 852-3077 and


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


A resolution calling on the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ to declare itself to be an Immigrant Welcoming Conference and calling on its Congregations to covenant as Immigrant Welcoming Congregations was overwhelmingly approved at the 55th Annual Meeting of the Conference held, June 9-11, at the Green Lake Conference Center.  As you may recall, our church, along with 81 other churches throughout the Conference, began to study this issue last winter.  We hope to continue the conversation about becoming an Immigrant Welcoming Church this coming fall.


You might be interested to know that a number of kids and adults from our church will be attending summer church camp: Jennifer and Lily Dimmer, Amy, Ella and Simon Gilhooly, Joshua Jacque, Jeanne Mantsch and grandsons Cash and Vegas, Tina and Kylee Olson, and Beckie and Elaina Perez. Have a great time!


Port Pre-School is currently accepting registration for its 3K Program. Children must be 3 years old by September 1, 2017.  Classes meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.  Daily activities include circle time, music and movement, teacher-directed projects, child-centered play, snack time and story time. For more information, please contact (262) 268-6173.


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. 


Men in the church are invited to gather for breakfast every Thursday morning, at 8:00. During the summer months, the group meets at the Dockside Deli.


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.


If you wonder what you missed, copies of last Sunday’s bulletin are always available on the literature rack in the church entryway and CDs of the service are always available in the church office.


We continue to offer a gluten-free option for receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The gluten-free communion bread is purchased commercially, and prepared separately, so that there is no chance of contact with our regular sourdough communion bread.
