Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
 
Philippians 3:12-14

Good Afternoon Everyone,

 

I guess I can’t keep up with the State of Wisconsin. Since my email from earlier today, things have changed. Here is my first update.

At a press conference this afternoon, the State of Wisconsin banned all gatherings of 10 or more people, lowering the total from 50 yesterday.

This means that we will be canceling all services and prayer meetings.

The church offices will remain open. If you have any needs, you are welcome to call, email or stop in. Office hours will remain 8 to 4, Tuesday thru Friday. 

That said, if you have any cold or flu symptoms or have been exposed to any colds or flus, please stay home, rest and recover. Do not risk sharing what 

you have with others.

 

We will be canceling Wednesday evening service until further notice. There will be no recorded message from Wednesday evenings.  

 

We will cancel Saturday morning prayer meetings until further notice.

 

We will be canceling Sunday Morning services until further notice. Instead of gathering here at the church, I will be preaching and recording a message 

every week. That message will be posted on our website by Saturday of each week. The message will be posted in both audio and video formats. My 

prayer is that you will take time over the weekend to watch the message, have some prayer time and time to discuss or consider what was taught in the message. For families, this would be a great family activity in place of Sunday morning service. We are excited to offer this in video. It is something we 

have been working on and now are ready to offer. God’s timing is always perfect.

 

As I wrote earlier, I am deferring the study of Genesis as many people do not have access to the internet or capabilities to listen to or watch the message. 

We will be doing topical studies that I pray are encouraging and helpful until we can gather back together at the church. At that time, we will continue the Genesis study.

 

I will continue to put out emails every week (or more often if necessary) to keep you informed on what is happening and to share any further 

announcements with you. I will do everything I can to keep our church family united during this time of crisis.

 

If you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We desire to respect the rules of the authorities that are over us as the 

Bible commands us to do. The ban on gathering is not directed at churches alone, but rather is an attempt to safeguard the people of our state, 

therefore it is something we need to comply with.

 

Finally, if you have any needs, please let us know. If you cannot go out and get needed supplies, or you need anything picked up for you, we have 

volunteers that are willing to help out. Please give us a call.


I didn't think I would have to do another notice so quickly, but this is a very fluid situation.  We will do our best to stay on top of what is happening.  

We love you all and look forward to meeting together as soon as we are allowed. 


Pastor Dave
