Governor Evers Ban on Meetings Larger Than 50

Today Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers put a ban on meetings of more than 50 people. The pastors of our circuit are meeting tomorrow to discuss how we will handle this situation. Pastor Arnold will also be discussing this with the church council on Thursday. Watch this site for details later in the week.

We pray that God would give our leaders wisdom to deal with this virus outbreak.

COVID-19

As you know the COVID-19 aka Corona virus is going across the nation. Following Governor Evers' mandate, the last class for our Little Lambs Pre-School will be this coming Tuesday, March 17. Classes will resume when we get the all clear.

Our services will continue as scheduled (please see the update from March 17 above). Just use the common sense precautions given in this article from the Wisconsin Synod. Please also read this blog post from one of the counselors at Wisconsin Lutheran Child and Family Service on how to have calm amidst all the chaos.

In everything we know that our almighty Father is in control. He will bring blessing out of this, just like he does with every trouble in life. We commit ourselves to his very capable hands, confident of his love for us in Christ Jesus.
