Welcome to Our Church

As the trajectory of COVID-19 continues its unpredictable arc, we try to be as thoughtful, concerned, and caring as possible.  For the time being (all actions are subject to change), we have determined that we can resume public worship in a limited fashion.  Sunday worship has resumed at 9:00 Sunday mornings OUTSIDE.  We have plenty of space for maintaining appropriate social distancing.  However, direct social contact during worship has been eliminated; no sharing of peace and communion is taken in place with individual sealed meals.

If you are not yet ready to rejoin us physically, we understand.  But please join us for virtual Bible study and worship available on our website stjohnwausau.org, our Facebook page St. John ELCA, and our YouTube page St. John Wausau ELCA.

Even in the midst of concern and distress, we remain faithful; trusting in the love of God in Jesus Christ.  The Apostle Paul said it well, “For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you…for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7 NRSV)
