We believe that we are called disciples of Christ. Jesus told the original disciples: "7As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received without payment; give without payment." (Matthew 10:7-8).
It has been a difficult few months. Our church councils have decided to use the recommendations of the NW Synod of WI, the WI Council of Churches, and the CDC to guide how to safely move forward as a parish. The following documents are resources our councils used to formulate our Covid Response Plan. The documents in blue are directly from our parish leadership.
