Wednesday Evening Lenten Services

Please consider joining us for a worship service at 7:00pm each Wednesday throughout this Lenten season. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
The offerings collected during the Lenten services will go to support two missions of our wider church. Half of the Lenten offering will go to UCC Disaster Relief Ministries, earmarked for aid to Puerto Rico. The other half will go to support the good work of LaVerne’s Food Pantry, which works out of St. John’s United Church of Christ to serve the hungry of Sheboygan County.

Lenten Protein Drive!

The Mission Committee invites you during this Lenten season, not to give-up, but to give to others! The Sheboygan County Food Bank is always in need of protein-rich nonperishable food items (things like canned tuna, canned chicken, peanut butter, and beans). We will be collecting these protein-rich items during Lent and dedicating them during worship on Easter Sunday. Please bring what you can, when you can. There is a bin in the sanctuary labeled Lenten Protein Drive. Please leave your items there, and the Mission Committee will see they get to the Food Bank. Thank you!

Food can be dropped-off downstairs in the fellowship hall at around 5:45pm, and we will gather upstairs in the sanctuary for a brief worship service before the meal with the students. Please see Rev. Laura or a member of the consistory if you are willing to provide food for this event. Thank you!
