Announcements & Upcoming Events


Please join us at Tyrol Basin on Friday, February 22, at 6:45pm. This is geared toward the youth (grades 7 and up), but any adults who would like to come are more than welcome! Kids in grade 6 or younger will need a parent to join them. We will have a fire pit reserved at 8:00pm with snackies. The cost is $20 ($15 lift ticket, plus $5 rental) for adults and $17 for kids under 12. You will need to pay for your own ticket(s) on-site.


It has come to our attention that a few of our families at the Monroe site are in need of assistance. If you are able, we will be accepting food donations (primarily non-perishable items) to help them out. This will be an ongoing giving opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Ewings at or 608-535-6531.


God’s Word encourages us not to give up meeting together. Instead, we are to en-courage one another all the more as we see the Day approaching. We are meeting at 1:00pm on Sunday, March 3 at RLC to encourage one another. Pastor Ewings will review your important role in our ministry. Come and share what has worked for you, or ask others for ideas! See you there!


Our church constitution states, “The candidates names (for elec-tion to the church council) shall be published and posted, with the nominating team members’ names, three Sundays before the election. Additional recommendation for nominations may be made in writing to the nominating team through any voting member. The team shall consider such written nominations and take appropriate action.”

The nominating committee for the congregation welcomes the submission of names for the following positions:
Inreach Chairman - submit names to John Deegan
Property Chairman - submit names to John Deegan
Secretary - submit names to Randy Huebner
Monroe Liaison - submit names to Paul Schoenike
Please submit names by March 1 so potential candidates can be asked and given ample time to prayerfully consider serving on our church council. Elections to the church council will take place at the April congregational meeting. Date to be determined.


We are planning for our 2019-2020 Sunday School Year. Verona has 10 teachers that co-teach every other week and Monroe has 3 co-teachers. As we grow and expand our Sunday School program, please consider being a co-teacher. The lessons are all laid out for you with everything to do from the story, questions to ask for discussions, activities and crafts.

If you are even considering co-teaching, we’d like those interested to “shadow” a classroom in March/April. Please contact Lisa Neumann-Pudlo in Verona and Ellen Andrews or Lori Plenge in Monroe if interested. Thank you for consider-ing volunteering your time to the precious young souls of our congregation!


How are your days going as a Christian in this country? Are you feeling dragged down by society and frustrated over people’s rejection of you and your beliefs? Do you wish life were easier to navigate? Come and see the wonderful words God has given us to combat all of these trials… (even death!) in 5 short chapters of 1 Thessalonians!

Our study just began January 31st and will go through February at 7:30pm every Thursday. God has a challenge for you—keep faith in Jesus, love him and others be-cause he is coming back soon to reign forever and be with you in heaven. See you there!

Are you looking for a way to serve the Lord and your church? We need more people to serve as Ushers Thursday evenings in Verona. Ushering is very easy and does not require a lot of time, however it is an important part of the service. For more infor-mation contact Randy Munson at 608-320-4321, email; or Jeff Hartmann at Or speak to one of the pastors after a service.


Is there church if weather is bad?

If weather is bad, be safe.  Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church.  We do not cancel church for bad weather.  Pastors can make it to the church and will do so.  Be safe.  Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church. 

If you have a duty that day, such as ushering, greeting, bringing treats, we can cover it.  And there will probably be less of a need in bad weather. Be safe.  Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church.

Watch and/or read the sermon at if you can’t make it to church.    ...more
