Recent Events

All-Church Potluck

It’s a United Methodist tradition (and one of Lance’s favorites)! Join your church family Sunday, March 4th @ 5 pm in Fellowship Hall for fun and fellowship – but with a twist: Our potluck will be “Luau-themed”. Time to dig out that Hawaiian shirt or grass skirt, cook up something – maybe with a nod to the tropics – and come for some fun. More details to follow, but now you have time to tune your ukelele and think WARM thoughts!

“Souper Bowl of Caring”on Sunday, February 4

Stop and have a bowl of great homemade soup. Your choices are Delicious Ham and Potato Soup, Italian Wedding Soup, Curried Turkey Soup, and Beef-Vegetable Soup with Barley. Some of our youth will be on hand before and after both services to receive your cash donations on this national day of caring to benefit the Milwaukee Hunger Task Force.  Please be generous in your support of this worthwhile ministry! Update: $477.05 donated to support the Hunger Task Force.


Trunk or Treat

October 29, 2017 in the church parking lot we had our first Trunk or Treat. Twelve drivers decorated their open trunks with a Halloween Theme. Each driver a passed out Halloween candy to children who were trick or treating in costumes.The twelve drivers each gave candy to approximately 1,000 children in two hours. It was a great experience. One adult asked, “Who are you people?Why are you doing this?” Our family ministries coordinator, Lance, answered, “We’re members of this church. Wanted to do something for the children in our neighborhood.” Several adults were amazed and shared with drivers that “This is awesome.”
