COVID-19 Updates, Resources, and Action Plan
The South Wisconsin District has adopted many of the guidelines from the CDC and State of Wisconsin. We have postponed our Spring Pastors’ Conference, we have put off travel plans, and asked all staff to work from home. This being said, we are working to avoid interruptions to our daily operations; but please know that our response time to phone calls and emails may be limited. Below is a collection of resources, guidelines, and recommendations for our churches and schools to consider.
Please check back regularly for the most up-to-date guidance.
