A note of thanks from FPC supported missionaries
Enjoy this note of thanks and encouragement from the Williamson’s who are Wycliffe missionaries that are supported by FPC:
Dear Brothers and Sisters of Waunakee First Presbyterian Church,
We are thankful for you and for the ways you have journeyed together through this year of COVID. We’re confident that you have faced challenges as a church and as individuals which has pushed you to depend on God in ways you haven’t or haven’t for a while. We rejoice with you that you have been able to begin meeting together in-person again–what a blessing to gather together and encourage one another in faith and good deeds!
We pray that your Easter celebrations will be a rich time together and an opportunity to welcome others in the community into meaningful relationship with Jesus and His church.
Thank you for your prayers and support of us and our family through this year. We are so grateful for the obstacles that God’s living For continues to overcome as we work with Wycliffe Bible Tranlsators through supporting the work of members around the world.
Serving with you, Andrea & Travis Williamson
Have you ever served our country in uniform?
Each year on the Sunday before Memorial Day we recognize members of our church family who have served in the past, whether discharged or retired, as well as those who are currently serving our country in uniform. This year it will be on May 30.
If you were included in our previous listing, you will automatically be included again this year. If you would like to be included in this listing and haven’t been in the past, please contact Sue Gade in the church office at 949-9445 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 24. Also, if you are currently serving, please contact Sue to make sure your listing is up to date.
Thank you for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make to protect our citizens and our nation. This is a powerful, annual opportunity at FPC to thank and honor the men and women who offer themselves–in life and in death–for the good of their country.

Rocky Railway VBS
June 21-23 | 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Full steam ahead for 3 rockin’ nights on the rails! We are thrilled to offer a multi-age Family Outdoor VBS at FPC. Join us in FPC’s backyard on June 21-23 at 5:30-7:30 pm. No meal will be served but take some delicious snacks to chew-chew on at home.
Because our volunteers will not be able to be “hands on” to help, we ask each crew signing up to provide their own adult crew leader–Mom, Dad, Grandma or all!
Register Now: $25 for the first passenger and $15 for each sibling. Adults and volunteers board for free! (Space is limited to a maximum of 110 travelers.) Register using the link below to confirm your train ticket! Registration is open to FPC families first. (Don’t take a chance waiting for the caboose!)
We know the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone—raising the level of fear, stress, and anxiety for people all over the world and underscoring the importance of caring ministry. As a Stephen Ministry congregation, we equip and empower lay caregivers to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care. Our commitment to this ministry is extremely important during these uncertain times.
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this ministry, contact the church office.
