Life Together
You will find many opportunities for involvement in our community of faith.

 

Youth Sunday!Join us Sunday, May 1st as the youth lead us in worship. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow together in worship and share in the excitement of our youth as we praise our Lord.  Please join us for the Worship Service as the youth share their gifts with the congregation. The children will host a brunch following the service as a thank-you for all of the support from the congregation throughout the year!  
All are welcome! 

Graduate Recognition

We would appreciate it if the graduating students or their parents would notify the office of those who are graduating, including from what high school or college. We would also like to know who of our graduates will be able to attend worship on May 29th when this recognition will take place. Thank you, in advance, for contacting us! 608-423-3017

We’ll meet on Tuesdays at 11:00am beginning April 19 and another group will meet on Wednesdays at 7:00pm beginning April 20. The same study will be on both Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings to provide opportunity for people available during day or night to attend.

Habitat: Faith Build Update
On Sunday, May 1st in the back area of the Friendship Hall, there will be an informational meeting for those who have signed up to help with the building of the Faith Build home. The meeting will begin around 10:20 am and will last about 15 or 20 minutes. I encourage anyone else who wants more information, is mildly interested in helping in any way, or if you’re just curious, to please attend this meeting.


This year, the home will be built on the east side of Sun Prairie in the Uplands Neighborhood on 237 Prairie Clover Court. Our build days will be:
Tuesday, June 21st& Saturday, June 25th; Tuesday, September 6th & Saturday, September 10th. There will also be a “Site Blessing Ceremony” on Wednesday, May 11th at 6 pm at the site of the new Faith Build home. EVERYONE is welcome!! Please make plans to attend this event, even if you’re not planning to build! We will pray over the site and even have a change to “sign” 2X4 studs that will be used to build the home!! This is an amazing event for all ages! Please click here to read more about this project on page 9 of the May Issue of the newsletter.
