Dear Trinity near and far,

Pastor Amy Waelchli
Pastor Amy Waelchli

This Holy Week is different than any I’ve ever experienced. But it helps me to remember that the followers of Jesus, at the time of his resurrection, were alone in a house when the news arrived. Gone were the crowds that followed Jesus and gone were the voices crying out for his crucifixion. I wonder if they pondered on Him, if they supported one another in their grief. I wonder if they were dumbstruck by Mary’s announcement of his resurrection. I hope that each of us will travel through Holy Week with a fine tuned sense that we’re traveling in the footsteps of our Biblical Ancestors. I pray our faith is strengthened in whole new ways.
With the hope of the resurrection,
Pastor Amy


2019 was a good year for our endowment funds. The council chose to make a partial distribution of funds to: local food pantries, The Fort Atkinson Homeless Coalition, and Wartburg Theological Seminary.

Here is the link to order online from the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry
If you have been laid off, furloughed, or hours reduced please check Fort Food Pantry resource. They are here for you.

Regarding Funerals during Safer at Home: Although much of our daily lives have changed with the safer at home order, certain facts of life have not. (We’ve postponed two baptisms, for example.) For now, I’m able to conduct graveside services for immediate family (10 people maximum). This will be followed by a memorial service at a later date. Our sacred worship is a comfort in our grief and it’s my hope that having two services at different times will help in our grieving process. As always, I’ll continue to do my best. With the love of Christ, Pastor Amy
