Stephen Ministry-Caring for Each Other

Has life handed you a difficult situation? Maybe you’re facing illness, grief, or a family problem?   Do you need someone to visit with you in a caring Christian way? Our church has a Stephen Ministry program that trains people to spend time visiting with and supporting you in a one-on-one confidential setting. One of our Stephen Ministers would be glad to talk with you once a week for several weeks, months, or longer depending on your needs. If you would like to know more about Stephen Ministry, please contact the church office (783-3380), or Stephen Leader, Nancy Quinlisk, at (608) 792-5603.

 

2017 CROP Walk

The Coulee Region CROP Walk has been a part of this area for over 20 years.  In cooperation with Church World Services, the walk seeks to raise funds to provide food for needy people around the globe and in the La Crosse area.  Twenty-five percent of the money collected from this walk benefits the following local agencies:  the Hunger Task Force, the Onalaska/Holmen Food Basket, and WAFER!

The walk this year will be held on Sunday, October 8 (registration begins at 12:00 pm; the walk starts at 1 pm).  The walk will cover a distance of 5K and will begin at Onalaska United Methodist Church!!  Last year our church had over 30 walkers. This year our goal for our church is to raise over $2,000!  As an incentive, if the youth raise $500, Paul Bratsch will take a pie in the face. If the church raises $2000, Pastor Park will also take a pie in the face. For more information talk to Harvey Witzenburg.
