FIFTY WEEKS since Governor Evers put the first covid restrictions on Wisconsin.  Our daily tally above will continue until our church is fully open for in-person worship. Even with the vaccination cover our area has had, our elders are not ready to risk full opening until we have a clearer picture of the safety in doing that.
