Greetings Members and Friends of OCCUMC, 

Please visit our Facebook Page for online worship services.

 

The Leadership/Finance Team met on Monday, August 24, and shared a long conversation about in-person worship during the Covid-19 health crisis. For a number of reasons including very few worshipers, not enough volunteers, and recommendations from the Bishop no to have in-person worship, the OCCUMC team came to the consensus that our last in-person worship services at least through the end of the year will be Sunday, August 30, and the memorial service on Tuesday, September 1. Back in June, when we were discerning if we should open the church up this summer for worship, we agreed that we would follow the CDC's, the Oak Creek Health Department's, and the WI Annual Conference Bishop's and Cabinet's recommendations reagarding in-person worship. We received an email last week from the Bishop recommending that we not have in person worship through the end of the year. Also, you may be interested in viewing the Bishop's and the Conference Lay Leader's YouTube explanations at   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhUnt UnPvk&feature=youtu.be   We know that this is disappointing, but it is for the best so that no harm is done to anyone. We will continue to offer Facebook Live! worship services on Sunday mornings at 9a.m. Cancelling in-person worship services will give us time to focus on designing even more effective worship services. We hope to have more people tape parts of the service from their homes and then splice the video together in one coherent service in the future.

 

All classes, Sunday school, dinners, Preschool, choir rehearsals, meetings, and other gathering are also cancelled.

I will be sending  weekly pastoral e-mails.

If you have any need for pastoral care and/or questions please call me on my cell phone at 608-279-3010.

God is with us all as we navigation these uncharted waters.  Keep attuned for further information.

Blessings,
Pastor Wendee Nitz

Welcome!

Welcome to the Oak Creek Community United Methodist Church (OCCUMC) website!  We hope that this site will bring a little insight into whose we are as people of God.  Through this site, you will find links that will help you connect with worship, Christian education, outreach activities, our preschool, and much more.  OCCUMC has been blessing the southeast corner of Wisconsin for over 175 years.  That legacy of bringing a good word and caring deed to people continues today through God’s Spirit.
 
Our mission here at OCCUMC is that we are a Christian fellowship whose mission is to worship God, love and serve ALL people, to grow in faith and invite others to become disciples of Jesus Christ.  God supplies the energy and focus for our love and care for our neighbor and we respond with joy. 
 
Please join us for worship.  We would be blessed by your presence. 
 
Peace,
Pastor Wendee Nitz
