At the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Conference, a resolution was presented that encourages us to officially become an Immigrant Welcoming Conference.  In order for the resolution to come to a vote at the 2017 Annual Meeting at least 30% of our congregations need to study the issue before March 1.  We are hosting two study sessions on Sunday, February 12 and 19, immediately following the 10:00 service.  Alex Funk, the Chair of our Community Outreach Team, has offered to facilitate. If you were unable to join us for the first session, you are still welcome to come to the second. 


In the spirit of being an Immigrant Welcoming Church, we are hosting another potluck dinner with our neighbors from the Islamic Society of Sheboygan on Saturday evening, February 25, at 6:00. Children and youth are welcome to join us! Please RSVP by Wednesday, February 22, by contacting the church office.  Invitation


Our church is one of several churches in Ozaukee County that support an organization called Family Promise, which provides temporary housing to families who find themselves homeless. We need several volunteers for the week of February 26 - March 4 to provide meals and overnight supervision. If you are able to help, or would like more information, please contact Jeanne Mantsch at (414) 438-3653 or


All children 4K through 7th grade are invited to participate in our Church School program, held on Sunday mornings at 10:00. Church School Schedule


Each Sunday morning during the 10:00 service, our church provides a Nursery for children newborn through 4-years-old. Parents are required to register their children, and to sign their children in and out of the nursery. We want to do our very best to make the nursery a safe and secure environment.


Each Wednesday at Noon, you are invited to meet Jeff at church for lunch and Bible study. The group always takes time to visit before reflecting upon the lectionary reading for the upcoming Sunday. Coffee is always provided, but please bring your own lunch.


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.


If it should be necessary to cancel one or both of our Sunday services, we will put a message on the church answering machine by 7:00 on Sunday morning. Please call the church office, 284-2022, if you have any doubts about the weather.


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.
