We’ve Cancelled the “Summer Slump”!

Lots of churches talk about the “summer slump”–when church life slows to a trickle as folks travel or take summer days to bask  in sunshine and other activities.

Admittedly, that happens a bit at First Congregational UCC in Baraboo.  But rather than wallow in a slump, we choose to try different things we don’t do the rest of the year.

So join us for worship at 9:30 AM…for many of us it means we get to come a little later than other times and we conclude earlier, allowing time both for church and the rest of the day’s activities.

We have a church picnic after worship on June 10 at the farm of Dick & Geri Schoenoff, about 3 miles north on County A from 8th Street in Baraboo, then right onto Side Road, first farm on the left.  We share good food, fellowship, fun and even have music with Simply Sax.  And who knows?  There may even be a chance to visit with the pigs and the piglets!

On Second Sundays of the month in Summer we have activities for children and youth–Second Sunday Summer Shenanigans.  This year, in June, it’s a visit to the Big Cat Rescue in Rock Springs; in July, fishing at the Dresen’s pond; and in August, fun on the South Shore at Devil’s Lake State Park where everyone else from church will come out after worship for more food and fun.

And don’t forget ART June on the courthouse square on Saturday, June 16, where we’ll be meeting attendees, sharing about our church and decorating painted rocks with positive words and images.

Quite likely we’ll also be making our annual presence known with courtesy water and lemonade and balloon animals to top it off during the Big Top Circus Parade that goes right by our church.

Join in the special fun with us this summer.  It’s a nice time to get to the know the church congregation in a relaxed way!
