During the summer months, from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, we celebrate with one service on Sunday mornings at 9:00.


The Search Committee will be meeting for the first time on Monday evening, June 12. Rev. Franz Rigert, our Wisconsin Conference Minister, will explain the entire search process, along with how to complete our Church Profile.


The United Church of Christ has two wonderful camps. Pilgrim Center is located on Green Lake near Ripon, and Moon Beach is located way up north near St. Germain. You can visit to check out the camp offerings. Click here to see what scholarships are available. Please contact Amy Gilhooly, our Communications Director, at if you have any questions.


The 32nd General Synod of the United Church of Christ will be held in Milwaukee June 21-25. Volunteers are needed to assist with the entire convention, including providing housing for delegates coming from other parts of the country. For more information, please contact Jeanne Mantsch at


Every year, members and friends of our church participate in charitable fundraising events (walks, runs, bike rides, etc.) helping to raise thousands of dollars for a variety of worthy causes. As a church community, we support these efforts by contributing $100 per event from our Local Mission Fund. If you are planning to participate in one of these fundraisers, please complete and submit the Charitable Fundraiser Contribution Request form.


Our church partnered with four other churches in Port Washington and Saukville to form the Lighthouse Youth Ministry. Please check out Lighthouse - Port Washington Saukville Ecumenical Youth Ministry on Facebook to learn more about the group. Click here to view a short video that was shown at the Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Conference UCC at the beginning of April.


Every Sunday morning during the 10:00 service we provide a nursery for children newborn through 4-years-old. Care is provided by our 8th grade Confirmation students and their families. Parents are required to register their children, and to sign their children in and out of the nursery. We want to do our very best to make the nursery safe and secure.


Men in the church are invited to gather for breakfast every Thursday morning, at 8:00, at the Dockside Deli in Port Washington.


A gentle yoga class is held in Fellowship Hall every Wednesday evening from 5:15 - 6:15. The cost is $10 per class. For more information, please contact Susan Niederfrank at


An AA Group meets at our church every Sunday afternoon at 3:00. For more information, please contact the church office.
