As coronavirus spreads throughout Wisconsin and our country, our local businesses have been thrust into a challenging position of finding safe and compliant ways of conducting business while keeping their company afloat- each sunrise becoming a fluid question mark of what updates that day will bring and what it means for them.
We are doing our best to keep tabs on what is happening with our local businesses as updates occur, and will continue to post them here as long as is necessary to get our country through this pandemic.
Businesses: Visit our COVID-19 Resource Page under Members for resources to help your business through this challenging time.
Please remember how critical your support is to our local businesses, and continue to patronize them whenever possible, both now and in the weeks to come to keep providing them with the necessary cash flow they need to stay in business.
If you do not feel comfortable with in-person visits, this can come in the form of buying gift cards for restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, or hotels for yourself, teachers, health care workers, or as gifts for weddings, graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc.
You could also consider buying meals to-go and delivering to elderly or immunocompromised neighbors and family who may not feel comfortable going out in public, or as a special treat for families working in health care, local police and fire departments, etc. Let’s make sure we are all doing our best to take care of each other in our small, close-knit community.

We are not gathering in-person in our church building every week during the Fall of 2020. We are moving our services to your block using our digital service and small groups. Many of the people in our church are not ready to gather in large groups but have indicated a willingness to gather in smaller environments. If someone is ready to gather in groups, then we want to bless them to do that. Others want to be more cautious, and we want them to know that they are still a part of our church as they gather with their family. Either way, we believe that God’s word planted in good soil produces much fruit (Luke 8), and we want to invest in our time and energy so that our people, church, communities produce much fruit in this season. We want to be stronger when this pandemic season is over.
We will be gathering in-person in the field next to our building on the first Sunday of every month (weather permitting).
We will be investing more time and effort into our group chat Bible studies. We read and apply the Bible together and pray for each other. New groups starting every month.
We will be creating and distributing boxes with discipleship resources and mission projects for the whole church to do together. We call them “Growing. Together. Boxes.”
