In light of multiple factors related to the surge and the spread of the Coronavirus and its variants, the recommendations from the Wisconsin Annual Conference, and the Wisconsin Council of Churches, the Church Council held a special meeting on January 10, 2022, at 6:30 pm. After a very difficult conversation and discussion, the Church Council decided the following:

Thank you for your continued support, understanding, prayers, and participation in the life and ministry of FUMCWA. The Church Office will be open as scheduled in the January Methodist Messenger.

LIVE Service Streaming 11am Sunday Mornings 

The recorded version of the worship service will remain on the church YouTube channel for viewing and a link to the video will be posted on the church Facebook page AND on the church website on Sunday at 11:00 am.
