During these challenging times we will be experiencing changes to our days and our lives. Our staff is actively considering how we are to be the church in such a time as this. We are looking at how we will be the Body of Christ in a new way. Please continue to watch for church emails and check the website for information about how we will function as a church, provide spiritual support, provide for online giving, and more.
Both in-person and on-line worship services are available. Each week we live-stream our worship service at 9 am Sundays. You can click in to our livestream, you can view it later that week online, or you can come in person. We follow safety protocols for in-person worship to help keep us safe and healthy during these uncertain times:
- Social distanced seating
- Masks required
- Pre-registration is required
- Only those on stage to sing
- See the guidelines here for details.
We look forward to seeing those who feel comfortable coming, and are glad we can offer online option for those not ready for in-person worship at this time.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is the leading hunger-relief organization in the state, operating food banks in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley. Still Waters Church has been given a wonderful opportunity to partner with Feeding America to help feed Washington County.
Before COVID-19, 10,000 pounds of food was being distributed in Washington County weekly. This is no longer happening. To help fill the void, Still Waters Church has offered to be a mobile pantry. Feeding America will deliver pallets of perishable foods. Our volunteers will package the food into bags and place packages into vehicles as they pass through our parking lot...drive-thru style!
Feeding America Dates:
- Wednesday, April 14 | 10:00 am
- Wednesday, May 12 | 10:00 am
- Wednesday, June 9 | 10:00 am
Volunteer opportunities are available!

Continuing our support for Family Promise Organization of Washington County, Still Waters hospitality week is scheduled for May 2th through May 8th.
Over the past year, Family Promise has adapted their facility to accommodate new families joining in a safe manner and continue to work with the church network shifting from in-church hosting weeks to hospitality weeks. Our church has an opportunity to support those families by providing them a home cooked meal throughout the week. Family information will be provided as we get closer to our date. We’ll provide you all the details to prepare and package appropriately, making it easy for distribution to the families. Information forthcoming will include; number of families, size of each, ages of children, likes/dis-likes and any food allergies for things to avoid.
The Promise Center has refrigeration and freezer space for any meals arriving before your scheduled day as this may work better for some schedules. However, meals must be delivered by 3PM on the day you sign up for, except for the Sunday and Saturday meals you will need to deliver the Friday before.
Masks are required when entering the Promise Center. For contactless drop-off, simply call the Promise Center (262) 353-9304 upon your arrival and someone will meet you outside.
If you have any questions about the program or looking for other ways to support Family Promise please contact Vicki or Kelly Passineau.Sign Up Hand Pointing Right

Safe Families for Children is a movement fueled by compassion and faith to keep children safe and families intact as families go through crisis. Through Host Families, Family Friends, and Family Coaches, they temporarily host children and provide a network of support while parents get back on their feet. It is an honor to surround Moms and Dads with a community of families who believe in them and to be there for them when families need us most.
Still Waters is discerning whether we would like to become a partner church, meaning we would support Safe Families as a ministry of our church. Essentially, partner church volunteers become like an extended family for moms and dads in crisis, hosting kids and providing support to families including mentoring and friendship.
Drop off your ALMOST empty peanut butter jars at Still Waters Church. We will collect them and deliver them to the adorable puppies at the Washington County Humane Shelter.
Due to the continuing rise of COVID-19 rates in our community and the state of Wisconsin, and following strong recommendations from our Bishop and the CDC, Still Waters Church will discontinue in-person worship at this time.
The health and safety of our Still Waters family is our top priority. For that reason, we will continue to faithfully monitor CDC and other health safety guidelines, as well as regular updates and recommendations from our Bishop. We are committed to remaining flexible and modifying our worship practices as appropriate in the best interests of our church family and the surrounding community.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. While we are unable to attend worship services in person, we will celebrate Holy Communion together, but separately in our homes. If you would like to join us, please plan to have the elements at your house, including any kind of bread or cracker, and grape or other juice. During our online worship, our Pastor will bless the elements in your home from our church, and we will partake from wherever we are. We consider this a very sacred act that we can do knowing that the power of God’s spirit is not confined to a church building.
