October 2019 Series: The Methodist Way

Our October 2019 sermon series is called “The Methodist Way.” As Onalaska UMC members participate in the Reconciling dialogue around full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the life of our congregation, Pastor Park takes us back to our Methodist roots and talks about how our heritage helps us frame this conversation, especially the three general rules of Methodism. We’ll also have God Moment testimony from church members, and special events.

First Coulee Hunger Walk October 13

The first Coulee Region Hunger Walk is coming up Sunday, October 13th at 1:00pm in Myrick Park. This is a casual 5k fundraiser to support local La Crosse/Onalaska area food pantries and hunger ministries. 100% of the proceeds stay in our community, and walkers get to designate specific organizations to receive part of the funds they raise.
See the table in the lobby for more information, contact Harvey Witzenberg, or check out the website. Let’s have a big OUMC turnout for this new mission!
