Connect with Us
Want to connect with the church when you miss a Sunday? This section gathers information about our publications, worship livestream, video, social media, important documents and more. Most of our information is delivered online, but if you prefer paper, just let us know. Please contact our church office at (920) 733-7393 to receive important documents through postal mail.
The Open Door Newsletter
Our newsletter, The Open Door, keeps you up to date with the church. It is printed weekly in a format that combines Sunday’s worship bulletin with announcements, news and calendar items. It is distributed at worship services, posted to this page and emailed through a subscription (see below) that also includes a midweek update. Paper copies are mailed biweekly upon request.
Brief, prepared announcements may be accepted from our members, partnership organizations and other community groups. Inclusion is subject to suitability of the content and availability of space, with priority given to the activities of First Congregational. Church members and friends may also submit articles of 300 words or less. Submissions received by Tuesday at 4:00 PM will be considered for inclusion the following Friday.
To preserve the freshness and relevance of our content, articles will usually be run once. We welcome requests for run dates, which we will honor as space allows.
