This 'n' That

"CALLED TO CARE" (for the church gardens and landscape)

Come on Tuesday mornings and learn how to care for plants while keeping the church gardens beautiful! Any age is welcome. Mary Leisch and I are generally there on Tuesday mornings to help acquaint you with the care needs and to answer your planting questions.

Anyone can come anytime before Thursdays to pick up sticks.There are black garbage cans (NOT THOSE MARKED "RE-CYCLES") for the sticks.  Place the garbage cans next to the Boy Scout building since they must be hand carried to the city garage areas.

Congregational, Neenah-Menasha

'Smore Stories

Who hasn't told a story around the campfire, while roasting a marshmallow for a gooey S'more? Well, here's that invitation to tell a story. A "God-Sightings" story.

Specifically, during our July worship series, we will be telling Campfire Tales. For example, one of our storytellers will share about a hiking journey where she encountered nature and other people at their best.

Do you have a story about how you saw God at work in the great-out-of-doors? Call Rev. Bob and let's see how it may fit during this fun worship experience (the dates are July 9, 16, 23, and 30).

Manitowoc Cooperative Ministry Installation
Sunday, July 30, 10:00 a.m.

The NE Association of the Wisc. Conference, UCC invite all members, friends and clergy of the NEA Congregations to the installation of Rev. Judine Duewaechter and Rev. Matthew Sauer to the Manitowoc Cooperative Ministry, Three-Church Worship on Sunday, July 30th at 10:00am at Union Park Manitowoc, 502 N. 8th St., Manitowoc. Potluck picnic following worship. Bring your own chairs and a card table if able. Special music by Broken Chains from First Congregational UCC, Plymouth. Clergy will not robe that day but a red stole is welcome. Casual comfortable dress.
No offense, but we're assuming the installation won't be quite as exciting
as this photo taken in Manitowoc's Union Park.
