Church open today 2/4, Changes to Schedule

posted Feb 4, 2018, 5:47 AM by Chad Kafka

Just a mention that Church service will be ON for today.  We are cancelling Sunday School and rescheduling the congregational meeting to a later date.  We will communicate that out later and give folks time to plan.  The service today will still consist of the scripture, liturgy, and communion.  Join us if you are able and travel safe.  

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

posted Jan 23, 2018, 2:42 PM by Kate Fields

CALLING ALL UNDERWOODERS  Please mark down Sunday, February 4th, 2018 in your calendars. During our 10:00am Sunday morning worship, we'll have an important congregational meeting within the worship service. We'll line the front of the sanctuary with chairs, and sit, sing, and take Communion prior to our congregational meeting. The Strategic Visioning Taskforce will be presenting the information that they have collected in the last year about the status of Underwood, as well as recommendations for the future. Then, the floor will be opened up to everyone to contribute ideas, ask questions, and vision together. There will not be a vote in this meeting, but we do need all voices from Underwood to contribute to the collective conversation!

Spirituality Retreat

posted Oct 26, 2017, 8:13 AM by Kate Fields

Underwood will gather for our first Spirituality Retreat to be held at the Stable House on Saturday, November 11th, from 1pm-5pm. This is an opportunity to learn multiple spiritual practices to engage in to focus on God and to deepen your spiritual journey. We will learn communal practices, individual practices, and we'll close with an evening prayer service around a fire. Come expecting a deeply meaningful experience within your faith journey, with God, and with others in our community. Bring a journal and pen. If you can only come for part of the day, come on!

FRONT PORCH SERIES

This fall, starting in late September through the end of November, we'll begin a new series in worship called "Front Porch Conversations" where we'll have folks from all over Milwaukee joining us in worship to talk with me about how they are putting feet to their faith in creative and prophetic ways. Some faces you may recognize and some will be new to you! These will be 10 minute conversations prior to the sermon each week.

AUTUMN GATHERING: On Saturday, September 23rd at 5:30pm, we'll gather at Chad and Sarah Kafka's home (please see weekly email for their address) for an evening of autumn delight! Chad and Sarah will provide chili, but, if you are able, please bring a fall-ish side dish or dessert. We'll have a bonfire as darkness falls, bobbing for apples, and maybe some bonfire music (if you play a stringed instrument, bring it). There will be a carpool from Underwood, so if you need a ride, holler at Pastor Kate ahead of time.
