MINISTRIES

There is a ministry for everyone


Senior Choir 

 

  Beginning June 2, choir steps back from their programming until fall.  Look for startup information in the August and September chimes.  If there are any who would like to provide some special music during the summer months, please contact me to get on the calendar and if you have any questions.  We need to know at least a week in advance to adequately prepare hymn selection.  This music can be instrumental or vocal.

Thank you to Jennie Ortega who provided special music on May 12th and to Tom Rusch who continued his faithful playing as both service musician and choir accompanist for the May services.

 

 


MUSICIAN Position Available at First Congregational UCC

 We are seeking a musician to share their talent with our Congregation. The ideal candidate will be proficient in accompaniment and performance on a piano and/or organ.  This individual will partner with the Choir Director and Pastor to coordinate selections for the weekly Worship services.

To be considered, contact our Church Secretary at 920-261-6213 or email    lbentz@firstcongwttn.org 

Social Justice Team 

 

Our Social Justice Team met on March 24th.  We narrowed down our choices of priorities.  Our number one concern was "Poverty and Homelessness."  And on April 14 the Building a Welcoming Watertown Committee met, of which the First Cong is a subgroup with four other churches.  That meeting had the same agenda and result.

  This group determined a feasible goal would be to look into establishing a warming shelter to provide a hospitable place in Watertown for those out in the cold.  Both groups definitely thought alike!

* You are invited to the next Social Justice Team meeting for a Learning Session on Tuesday, June 4th at 6:00 p.m. at our church.  Contact the church office with questions .

People of ALL AGES are invited as we gather for monthly Vacation Bible School (VBS) events once a month on Wednesdays with activities and worship geared especially for children and families.

At Operation Restoration, we will learn to be MENDERS in God's world! We'll get together in the Multipurpose Room at Immanuel for a meal at 5:30pm before things kick-off at 6:00pm. We'll explore scripture, sing, pray, learn, and play together! Our evening will end with a time of worship from 7:00pm-7:30pm.

These monthly events are a partnership between First Congregational United Church of Christ and Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Watertown. Everyone, regardless of church affiliation, is welcome and encouraged to attend! If you have questions or would like to help, please reach out to Trevor at thomt.immanuel@gmail.com.
