In-Person Worship and In-Person Activities

Due to the Safer at Home order mandated by the state of Wisconsin regarding the Covid-19 virus, there will be no in-person worship services or in-person activities and the church office will be closed until further notice. Please contact the church with any questions or concerns by either calling and leaving a voicemail or emailing the staff. We are receiving emails and voicemails and responding as soon as we are able. Please know that the pastors are here for you and can also be reached through email and voicemail. Thank you for your understanding.
Lawnmowers Needed
It looks like spring has sprung with the lawns getting greener and flowers are appearing in gardens. We are in need of more people to help with the lawn mowing for the summer. There are two riding lawn mowers so we will have teams of two. It can be a family or an individual. Mowers must be 18 years or older or must have a valid driver's license and an adult present to operate if the rider is under 18. Teams are scheduled on a rotating basis. So, if we have enough teams, you may have to do it just a few times during the summer. Please sign up NOW by contacting Shirley . Space is also available to sign up as a sub. If you have questions, please contact Shirley.
Mechanic Needed:

A huge thank you to Florent Malard for keeping the mowers up and running for the last few years. Great job, Florent. You are greatly appreciated!

 Are you mechanically inclined? Do you know how to overhaul a motor? If this is you, we NEED you to keep our lawnmowers up and running for the summer mowing season. We have two mowers that need routine checkups and tune ups so our lawn mowing crew can keep our lawns looking pristine all summer long. Thanking you in advance. Please
contact Shirley if you would be able to help.
Knit-Wits
During these times of Covid-19 and physical distancing, the Christ the King “Knit-Wits” are still making and praying over prayer shawls and finding solace as they are knitting. The need for the shawls continues in our community at large. If you are a knitter and wish to share with others during this time, we have yarn and simple patterns available for you to participate. They can deliver the items to you. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Meitzen either by email or by calling 920-450-9252.

Those are for the First Communion students & their parents.
First Communion Booklets

Parents of First Communion Students: If you have not received a First Communion booklet, we have set out a Rubbermaid container next to the mailbox in front of church with the booklets inside. Each booklet has your child's name on it. They are next to the Christ in Our Home Devotionals. The devotionals are not needed for First Communion.
