Update on our Church's Reopening for In-person Worship Services
As of February 18, 2021
Everyone misses attending church in person. Our Session met on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021, to discuss church matters including when and how we could possibly reopen for in-person worship services.
Currently as of February 18, 2021, neither our Northern Waters Presbytery nor the Wisconsin Council of Churches recommends reopening our church for in-person worship.
On Thursday, February 4, 2021, Gov. Tony Evers signed Executive Order #105 and Emergency Order #1 establishing a statewide public health emergency and requiring face coverings in public places to protect the health and safety of Wisconsinites.
Clearly it is not yet time to reopen for in-person worship services. The Session, however, is going to plan ways to reopen with a flex date (tbd) and guidelines for congregants and our Pastor to follow when we try to attempt a reopening of sorts.
On March 17, 2021, our Session will meet again to clarify any reopening trial dates and the procedures we will follow based on all factors to be considered.
Thank you for your patience with decision making and your support for Pastor Chips during this prolonged experience. We look forward to better days ahead.

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.
Marshfield Clinic now has a survey everyone can complete to be registered to receive the vaccine when it is available in our area. The Link below will take you to their page with information and there is a link to take a survey for sign up. Its fast and easy and you DO NOT need to be a clinic patient to complete it.
NOTE: Both Ascension and Aspirus Medical Groups have web sign ups for the Vaccine as well, go to their websites for more information.
