Our congregation participates in the SCRIP program. This program offers our congregation the opportunity to purchase gift certificates to be used at various stores with a percentage coming back to the church. It has been decided that one-fourth of these profits will be used for Missions and the rest for our general budget.
From pre-school through 5th grade our Children’s Sunday School meets each week at 10-10:45 a.m. There is Scripture based music, a lesson, and hands-on craft every week. Special events for the children take place through the year, often on Saturday mornings. Robin Peterson is our Children’s Ministry Lay Leader, and Maggie Condon is the Sunday Coordinator.
Our Middle School youth program and the Confirmation Class are combined. This is a 3 year process (6-8 grades) and combines social/ethical development along with the Confirmation curriculum that prepares the youth to make their commitment to the Christian faith and become full members of the United Methodist Church. This class meets each Sunday from 9:50-10:50 with Mark Carlson and the pastors.
The Senior High class meets from 9:50-10:50 on Sunday mornings led by Samantha Klockow, a PhD student at Marquette University. This is a very active group with numerous events throughout the month in addition to the Sunday Class. Tom Van Rens is our Youth Ministries Lay Leader. Click for more information.
