Lenten Project

Get your coins ready!! The Missions Committee along with the Sunday School children will be having a Penny War as part of our Lenten Project. The money will be used to purchase hygiene supplies for the Antigo Community Food Pantry. The Penny War will be a challenge between the girls and boys of our parish. Sunday school children will buy the supplies as well as take a tour of the Antigo Food Pantry. After the war the Sunday School Children, along with the Missions Committee, will sponsor a Coffee Hour.

The Community Garden

On our land to the north of the parking lot, was started in 2009 with just 12 plots and has grown to 80 plots. We as a congregation are providing a needed service to our community. Most of the gardeners are not members of our church. Many have expressed sincere appreciation to our church for making it possible for them to have a place to garden.

Paul Webster

Our church supports Paul Webster, a missionary in Mujilla Falls, Zambia. He is a minister and rural economic development specialist. His projects promote major programs in education, health, sustainable and appropriate agriculture, community, evangelism, and church construction. He teaches skills that enable the local people to become self-sufficient and care for their land. Our commitment has been $2,500 yearly towards his salary. As a church, Paul’s ministry affords us the chance to be a part of a mission that we know is effective and life changing.
