Call to Action: Pura Vida Ministry Update
Our friends at Pura Vida have provided us with an update on their work in Guatemala during the Covid-19 crisis. Sadly, only one work group was able to make the trip in 2020 just prior to the pandemic. The need and the work continues! Please read the full report at the link below
How can MWCPC help?
● Sponsor a student.
We have ~28 students waiting for sponsors. We are experiencing a big downturn in new sponsors due to the absence of work trips and other opportunities to promote our Student Sponsorship Program.
● Donate to our Unsponsored Student Fund.
Students who have been accepted in our Sponsorship Program begin school immediately. Our commitment to students and families is to provide an education through High School, regardless of whether we are able to find sponsors for each student. The Unsponsored Student Fund provides support for these students in the interim.
Call to Action: Register for the Covid-19 Vacinne
For months, we have battled through the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything we've done together helped protect ourselves and loved ones. We can finally combat COVID-19 with a vaccine. Now is the time to stop the spread.b

A message from Pastor Chips about worship
Dear Church Members and other Friends,
For the safety of our congregation, the Session decided to continue our “Safer at Home” virtual format indefinitely. I miss seeing your faces, however, given the inherent risks of group gatherings, particularly in meetings such as worship services, and the vast increase of cases in Wisconsin this fall, caution continues to be appropriate. Until a vaccine for the COVID19 virus is available, we are trying to provide you with an excellent virtual experience online, and we are continually trying to improve the services. When safe to do so, to provide broader access to our services, along with our regular worship service, we also plan on continuing some version of the online experience following the present coronavirus challenges. I have recently begun burning videos of the service for persons without the ability to view the services on the internet platforms. If you are aware of individuals needing this ministry, please let me or one of the deacons know, and we will seek to accommodate your needs.
Gratefully yours, your pastor,
