We have commenced selling tickets for the September 12th catered brunch following the 10:30 a.m. service, which will be outdoors under a tent on the green space with Bishop Paul Erickson presiding. 
The brunch following the service is being catered by Zilli’s of Waukesha and will include a grilled chicken breast main course.  This is a ticketed event for two reasons.  First, our brunch cost is on a “per plate” basis, so we need an accurate count for our caterer two weeks prior to the event.  Second, a nominal charge of $10 for adults and $5 for children (3-12) will partially offset our costs. 
Please note that tickets will be sold on a first-come basis.  You can purchase them after services or from the church office during normal business hours.  Do not delay as seating is limited. 
We are also inviting pastors from the past to join us this summer as guest pastors and partake in the celebration on September 12th.  We will be welcoming the following: 
  • Sunday, August 22nd – Pastor Robin Brown
  • Sunday, August 29th – Pastor Paul VanDeBerg
  • Sunday, September 12th – Bishop Paul Erickson will preside, with the following serving:  Brent Gustafson, Pastor Chuck Larson, and Pastor Suellen Myers
If you have any questions, please contact Duane Thornton.
