Coffee Fellowship Needs Your Help

Coffee Fellowship has once again become a special part of Sundays at church! We would like to thank everyone who has already volunteered to host this fall and winter. Mike and Liz Fischer, Coffee Fellowship Directors, are continuing to look for volunteers to host 1 or more Sunday Coffee Fellowships after the 9am service in the Parlor. It is a great way to interact socially with your church family, meet new members, celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. If you are interested, there is a
sign-up sheet on the serving table in the Parlor.
Here's all you would need to do:
  • Make a couple of pots of coffee. The directions are on the coffee cart next to the coffee maker.
  • Bring cookies, donut holes, bars or other treats to donate for about 30 - 40 people, as well as some gluten-free treats (or find these in the freezer).
  • Food can be homemade or from a store.
  • Serve the treats. There are paper serving boats, paper plates and napkins on the coffee tray, along with the gluten-free sign to display by those treats.
  • Put any dirty dishes and cups on the cart to the left of the coffee maker. No need to wash them, as they will be taken care of on Monday. Thanks, Andy!
  • There is a donation basket on the serving table. Please put any money donated in an envelope and put it in the mail slot on the church office door.
Please consider signing up to host (by yourself or with someone else). It is a great way to fellowship with your church family and provide an important service to others. Feel free to call us at 715/571-0489 with any questions.

Community Dinner

The community dinner is a meaningful ministry where we are able to offer meals to anyone in the community. Our next opportunity to host is Sunday, June 30th.
We are offering boxed meals and handing them out in the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church. If you want to get involved, we will be needing baked goods to add to the meal. Please contact Jen Johnson at 715-470-2527 and she will arrange a time to pick up any baked goods. Please also keep our dinner guests in your prayers.
Thank you!

First Wausau MC Tumblers

These stainless-steel tumblers hold 12 ounces, keep drinks hot or cold, and make great gifts and help us get the word out about our church! You can buy them for $7 each (at cost, no profit) in the office Monday-Thursday. And they are available in the Parlor on Sunday mornings.

In Sympathy...

Please pray for Molly Hoffman's family as they grieve the sudden passing of her grandson, Quinn Clarke, after being in an accident on 5-27-24. Also, Andy and Linda White for the sudden passing of her sister, Catherine Gibcke. 

Weekly Healing Meditation 

We never stop loving our special people who have died. In fact, as we grow older and wiser, we often gain the maturity and perspective to understand just how precious that relationship was…and our love grows. Our cup runneth over. Sometimes the question becomes: what to do with our abundant love? The object of our love is not here for us to lavish attention on. Maybe we could share it with someone else.  Perhaps a friend, family member, or neighbor could really use some of our loving kindness right now. Or how about volunteering for a cause or nonprofit that was meaningful to the person who died? The amazing thing is that love shared does not diminish—it multiplies. 
I appreciate the love we shared so much. The more I remember with gratitude, the bigger my love gets. When it overflows, I’ll find ways to share it that would make you smile.
