Sunday School News
Sunday school will start up again this fall, September 25th. Sunday school is for ages 3yr to 5th grade. Children start out in Sunday worship with their families then are released to go to their classrooms for a quick lesson with activity or craft. We always need volunteers to help. If you are interested, please let the church office know.
Thank you all who donated baked goods for the Sunday school bake sale. We will use the proceeds to shop for the tags on the giving tree this year.
We had a great time at our campfire cook out last month. Children made a simple craft, played some “get to know you” games, water balloon toss, and listened to a story from Pastor Debbie about “Fishers of Men” How we can be good disciples of Jesus.
We would like to do some other fun activities during the year. We could plan a family hike, picnic at Jack Lake or a movie night. If you have any ideas or suggestions and would like to help volunteer for these projects, please let Denise know. You can call the office 715-623-3802 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Antigo Community Garden
God provides the sun, water, and soil. You provide the seeds and the will to plant and till the soil. Together a bountiful harvest is produced.
Volunteers Needed to Operate Our Video Camera
We would like others to volunteer to help run the camara on Sunday mornings. We will train you and we have instructions printed. We can train during the week or on Sunday mornings. We would also sit with you for a couple of times until you are comfortable. It is easy. We would like to have enough people trained so that we can take turns on a rotating schedule. If you are only slightly interested, try it. Call the church office for details.

Oceans Apart, by Karen Kingbury, 2004, is a Christian fiction story of an airline pilot and a past situation that disrupts his present family. Relationships, decisions, and forgiveness are main themes in this novel.
Beyond Belief to Convictions, by Josh McDowell, 2002, is subtitled with “What you need to know to help youth stand strong in the face of today’s culture”.
