This morning, following an email from the Cuba City School District, I contacted the Grant and LaFayette county health departments to get a better picture of how COVID-19 case numbers were behaving in Cuba City specifically. I was informed that 80% of new cases were in Platteville and south. Since September 6th there has been a rapid increase of cases across not only our county but (now it appears) Cuba City specifically. Because of this, in order to protect our congregation, I strongly believe it’s best we move to virtual worship immediately.
We will continue to explore how to best carry on and expand our ministry during this trying time. I am looking into options for an online Bible study as well as ways we can safely serve each other. Perhaps some outdoor service projects for our youth that can be done safely and in good conscience.
Once we again have a steady decrease in cases for 3 weeks we will return to in-person worship. I realize this means it will likely be some time before we are able to meet together again, but safety is of the highest priority. I simply do not feel good risking the health of our congregants especially knowing what I do now - that cases in our city are on the rise, and there are known, active cases at the elementary school.
Hebrews 10:23-25 states: Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. This breaks my heart and I am already feeling the darkness of mourning a loss setting in, but we hold on to a deep hope in Christ that the loss of being physically in our building and together is a loss of only that and nothing more. We can still stand together in sharing the Gospel, our hope in Christ, and encouraging one another as we draw closer to the end of this difficult time.

Start Your Journey to Master the Bible.
The problem most of us have with the Bible is that we started out studying the details without ever getting the big picture. It’s no wonder we’re confused! In the Colorado Rockies, there are so many mountain peaks, nobody could climb them all. But there are 53 peaks that are over 14,000 feet. And many hikers try to climb all 53 fourteeners.
That’s what Max Anders does in this Bible study. You’ll look at only the fourteeners – a manageable amount of information. In 30 days, you’ll have a complete understanding of the story of the Bible and the core teachings or doctrines that Christians have held onto throughout the centuries, presented in bite-sized pieces. After you have mastered the fourteeners, you will have the basic information you need for hiking the smaller peaks.
Anders’ simple-to-use, straightforward guide has been recommended by Bible teachers and pastors for thirty years, and now he can join your Bible study and launch you on a journey of mastering the Bible so well that the Bible masters you. This study will include 6 weeks of video sessions and discussions along with approximately 15 minutes of daily work for you to do on your own.
Join Pastor Jess each Tuesday, beginning October 6th at 9am to journey through the Bible together.
Even though the youth are not able to do the fundraising that they normally do there are still ways to help them out in collecting funds for future camp and activities.
The youth still have Kwik Trip Gift Cards for sale. We are able to buy these cards at a discounted price and we also earn a small percentage when the cards are used in the stores.
If you are interested in a Kwik Trip Gift Card please contact one of the youth or Jess or Dana
