SCRIP ORDERS - The September deadline for ordering Scrip is TODAY.  Orders will be ready for pick up next Sunday, Sept. 9.  Debit/credit cards may also be used to pay for scrip orders. Use the card terminal in the narthex of church (directions are located next to the unit).  To place an order, simply complete your order form (at the Scrip station in the narthex and on our website) and place it in an envelope along with your cash, check or debit/credit card slip.  Place your envelope in the wooden Scrip box located in the middle church office or in either of the drop boxes. If you have any questions regarding the Scrip program and how easy it is to use, please contact Sharon Hauschild 715-307-2531 (cell).  Thank you!

ANNUAL RUMMAGE SALE – is this week!  Friday, Sept. 7 (8 to 5) and Saturday, Sept. 8 (8 to 12). 11 to 12 on Saturday is FREE! We have lacked for volunteers in the past, so we are asking EVERYONE to consider volunteering for an hour. Proceeds benefit the new playground and His Arms Kenya. Bring donations today until Wednesday. We encourage volunteers to come anytime - even in the evenings (no need to price items – just sort to correct areas). Men are especially needed for clean-up beginning at 11 am on Saturday - it takes a village to put on the rummage sale and we are counting on you! Once you work at least an hour you may pre-shop, but you are not allowed to start piling items until you work. Please consider donating and helping spread the word. WE NEED HELP, and this is a great way to meet more people. If you have questions, ask Nancy Rowe at 715.531.8784 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. THANKS FOR DONATING AND HELPING!!!

RALLY DAY - Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 9, our first day of Sunday school!! Registration forms are in the narthex and the church office, or you can register on Rally Day. If you would like to help by being a substitute or special teacher, please let Jody Ramberg know at This email address is being protected from spambots.

WHAT IS LOGOS?  LOGOS is a weekly intergenerational experience for children where all ages learn, experience, and practice the art of Christian relationships.  We eat, play, study, and pray together. Please consider making this program part of your family’s schedule.  Come and find out more at our parent meeting on September 12 at 7:00 p.m.  If you are unable to attend the meeting or would like more information, please call Julie Hanson at 715-220-5149.

THANK YOU PICNIC! The congregation is invited to a THANK YOU PICNIC on September 16 following the second service.  A pig roast with beverages, chips, beans, coleslaw, buns, and dessert will be served, and there will be games for the kids.  The Board of Stewardship greatly appreciates all that you have done for our church, so please join us as we say thanks!  

DO YOU LIKE TO EAT?  Logos Family Time needs adults to be paired with tables of kids each Wednesday during the meal portion of our program (the time is brief – roughly 45 minutes). We would like to have two per table, so we would gladly accept husband and wife teams or singles to be matched up with others. Please prayerfully consider this and contact Kari Wangen at (715) 505-2585 for more information.

Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not them be afraid.   – John 14:27
