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


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.
