We have a new part-time Office Manager hired. Andrea Long, an Our Savior’s Member, who joined the church during my first new member’s class with her 4 kids, will begin her training on Tuesday, July 13th. Her partner is Andrew Madson, the guitar builder.
Andrea has an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts from Madison College. She is working on her Bachelor’s part-time in Organizational Leadership at UW-Green Bay. She has worked in the grocery business, banking business, and most recently as a Project Administrator for the building of the new Green Bay Packaging facility. She plays Tuba and Baritone for the Neenah City Band. Welcome aboard Andrea.
Our staff met this week and we decided to adjust our office hours to 9AM to 1PM Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs; 9AM to Noon on Fridays, and we will add a Wednesday evening from 4PM to 8PM for those who work or can’t make it here during the day. We will try this out for the summer to see how it works. Pastor Jon and Vicar Kellie are available beyond these hours for pastoral emergencies or by appointment M-Th through the links below.
We are partnering with Gloria Dei, St. Mark’s, and St. Paul Lutheran Churches to bring you Vacation Bible School August 1-5. We are still in need of a few volunteers. We have jobs for youth (15 and up) and adults! We are also in need of some foods, utensils, art supplies, etc. During worship, you will have an opportunity to grab a slip from our wishlist of items. Please consider supporting this awesome ministry! If you would like to donate items or volunteer to help during VBS, please contact Vicar Kellie at email@example.com.
In an effort to begin returning to normal, beginning on Saturday, July 10, we will be adding a worship service! We will have church worship in-person each Saturday beginning at 5:00 p.m. as well as our Sunday service at 9:00 a.m. As usual, masks are not required for the fully vaccinated (honor system), and we will still maintain social distancing of three feet. See you in church!
Last week, ad hoc, Pastor Jon invited the children up to the front of the church for the children’s sermon, for the first time since the start of the pandemic. It was wonderful to interact with the kids. We will continue to invite kids up for the children’s sermon, but in order to be consistent, masks are required for all kids and the pastor/vicar at children’s sermon. We will also practice 3’ physical distancing. We have kid-sized masks available at church.
Students entering grades 6-8 are invited to our Middle School Lock-In, happening June 26-27! The adventure begins Saturday, June 26 at 7pm, and we’ll finish it all up by attending church together the next morning – in PJs and all! If your child would like to participate, please email Vicar Kellie at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re also looking for a few awesome parent volunteers! Please let Vicar Kellie know if you are interested or have any questions. Hope to see y’all there!
