Worship Service Announcement 



Dear Church Family,

After much prayer and deliberation, we have made the decision to cancel our in-person worship, for both services gathering beginning, Sunday, October 4th. This is due to increased cases of the  COVID-19 virus in the Northwoods and throughout Wisconsin. We are sorry for any inconvenience at this time, but our major concern is always with the physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare of the people we serve. We will continue to have an online worship service according to our normal schedule, which will be on Facebook and our website at www.fumcrhinelander.com . 

Again over the past month, cases in COVID-19 have been on the rise. In our church’s protocol, when we opened worship to in-person, we stated that if there was a rise in cases of the virus we will revert back to phase one.  We will monitor the cases of the Coronavirus in our state and community. Our church leadership will be in discussion with one another when in-person worship will begin again.


The past weeks of corporate worship have been so wonderful and I know that we will rebound from this setback. I look forward to seeing your faces again very soon. In the meantime, please be in prayer for those affected by this pandemic. Pray for our faith community. Please, remember that even though we’ve closed our sanctuary to in-person we will still be open as a church and open to ministry.

We will keep you posted. Please keep the leadership of 1st United Methodist Church of Rhinelander in your love and prayers. If you have any questions please contact pastor Mark Klaisner at (920)540-2446 or msklaisner61@yahoo.com


Wishing you God’s richest blessings.



Pastor Mark
