ONE SERVICE ONLY at 10:00 a.m.

Chalice Camp for children aged 1-11 at 10:00 a.m.
Every congregation has a story and every September we begin writing another chapter in the First Church story; and by our presence and participation we weave our own individual stories into that larger tale. This year, after the retirement of our long-time senior minister, Drew Kennedy, we begin a decisive chapter of reflection, inquiry and resolution. We’ll sketch a wider perspective for that effort, then offer an outline (every writer’s friend!) for thinking about our chapter’s characters, plot and action.
Alexis Fielek has been a member of our congregation since 2007 and is grateful to have been given the chance to play a variety of different roles here at First Church, from Worship Associate and choir member to Pastoral Care Associate and member of the Board. She is extremely excited to have this opportunity to participate in a summer service with her friend, Dale Skaggs.
Dale Skaggs and his wife Lynda Lambert joined First Church in 2007, not long after moving to Milwaukee. Dale served on our Stewardship committee, on various task forces and recently began serving as a Worship Associate and a member of the Board of Trustees. His background includes many years in the IT industry, a return to college for an Art History degree, a stint as the assistant director of a university art gallery, a few years in the visual effects business, and a current focus on restorative agriculture and local food systems.
