A New Bible Information Class is planned for this summer, beginning June 13th at either 11:00am or 6:30pm.  This is a 14-15 session study of Bible teachings; a way to join our congregation or a great review of the truths you may have learned in Catechism Class many years ago.  Speak with one of the Pastors if you are interested or know someone who might be.

Vacationing this Summer?  Don’t take a vacation from worship! When on vacation, try worshiping with one our sister WELS congregations where you are.  Before you leave town, stop in at the church office to check out the WELS Directory to find churches and worship times.  Or, use the “church locator” at  If you are vacationing nowhere near civilization, and no sister churches are near, a hymnal and Bible or devotion book are all you need to have family worship wherever you are (and not just on Sunday!).
