Message from Pastor Mark Klaisner

Greetings and Shalom

As the pastor of the First United Methodist Church of Rhinelander I would like to greet everyone with a message of inclusion, peace, as well as an invitation to visit our faith community. I feel so blessed serving as the lead pastor of this congregation. Who we are as a church is summed up in our mission and vision statements:

Our Mission: is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Our Vision: is to create a safe community of inclusion, acceptance, and LOVE.

We exist to be the eyes, hands, and feet of Christ to our community and world. This is accomplished by opening our doors to all people. In short we all are welcomes to God's banquet table. That, also, means you!

We pray that you will discover the presence of Christ in our worship, service, gathering, and fellowship. We express our delight in having your join us in worship and if you are longing for a church home you will find generous friends here.

Wishing you God's Richest blessings!

Shalom, Salam, Peace

Pastor Mark Klaisner
