4th ward update: Bike donations needed to help fill 50 rain checks!

The Bike Elves donated and gave away 167 bikes at the event. They take donated bikes, fix them up and give them away to children who do not have a bicycle at no cost to the child or family. At our event, 50 children were given rain checks because they did not have the right size bikes for them. We're asking you to help if you are able. Thank you for all you do for our community!

Social Distancing Practices (6.10.2020)

These guidelines are provided for the health and safety of our church members. We are doing our best to abide by the national, state, and local government directives and will adhere to guidelines while accommodating as many people as possible as we persevere through this pandemic season. Your patience and compliance are greatly appreciated!


Weekend Services:

  • Church members are encouraged to practice love and grace for others as they consider their differing opinions on social distancing guidelines.
  • As you enter the church, hand sanitizer and facial masks will be available. Please use them to help us prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • Please note that though everyone is encouraged to wear a mask, we are not mandating this as a requirement to attend worship services. We also encourage you to respect those around you by limiting physical contact (hugs and handshakes) for their comfort and safety.
  • Beginning the weekend of July 4-5 we will have four identical services: Saturday at 5 p.m., and Sunday at 8:45 a.m. Traditional, 9:00 a.m. Contemporary, 10:30 a.m. Contemporary and12:30 p.m. Spanish.
  • The van pickup service will be available during the 10:30am service.
  • Seating is set up so that members are able to worship while maintaining a minimum of a 6 foot distance from others. Family members residing in the same home are welcome to sit together.
  • Two seating locations are available for Sunday morning services: The main Sanctuary (Room A), the Youth Room (Room B). There will be a live stream into the Youth Room. This is to accommodate as many people as we are able to, up to a 50% capacity per the fire code of each designated room. (See images below for clarification)
  • Those who feel strongly about wearing a mask are encouraged to find a seat in the Youth Room (Room B).
  • People wishing to sit in the sanctuary or the Youth Room are encouraged to park in the north parking lot (A/B) and enter the church through the north sanctuary doors only.
  • There will be no nursery, children’s church, or junior high youth programming until phase three of the reopening plans per the Rock County Health Department.
  • We will not be having a meet and greet time during our services.
  • No offering will be taken during the service. There are receptacles in the rear of the sanctuary and in the entryway near the church office to deposit your offering.  You may also go online to the church website and check out giving options under the “Give “ menu at www.FaithCommunityChurch.net

Group Meetings (Bible Studies, Classes, Small Groups, etc.):

  • The church is available for use by groups that are scheduled on the church building calendar. Please check with Laura Bergeron for availability to use the church for ministry purposes. You can contact her in the church office at 608-758-2850.
  • Groups using the church are expected to abide by the social distancing measures mentioned above. Please maintain a 6’ distance from one another and only occupy up to 50% of the room capacity.
  • Groups are responsible for setup and cleanup of any rooms used during their ministry time. This includes rooms, bathrooms, and door handles. There is a sheet located in the cleaning check list mailbox to fill out each time you use the church. Please place the completed form in Laura’s mailbox.
  • Supplies for sanitizing will be located in the foyer utility room across from the bathrooms. More supplies are available in the utility room across from the nursery and also in the Children’s area.


Thanks again for your help in keeping everyone at our church safe and healthy!


If you need help in any way, let us know here.


HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

  1. Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers who are treating the sick and those public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from further spread of the virus.
  2. Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith, patience, and prudence. We can demonstrate to the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.
  3. Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.

ACCORDING TO THE CDC, HERE ARE SOME STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE

  • If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions, avoid crowds as much as possible.
  • Continue social distancing of at least 6 ft.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Wear a face mask whenever you leave your home.
