Pastor Keith Wolf of Rhinelander First UMC worked with teenagers in the congregation to help make their service more modern, and reach a younger audience. This new approach was highlighted on Newswatch 12. Sixteen-year-old Sylvia Dhaseloeer and 17-year-old Alexis Denny spoke about the suggestions, and changes they gave to Pastor Keith Wolf.

They were excited about the opportunity to create the type of service that they always wanted to attend, and hope to see more teenagers at the service. The changes made include upbeat songs, a casual preaching style, and a more laid-back service. Pastor Keith Wolf worked with the teenagers to organize a band and skit for the Easter Sunday service. Pastor Wolf hopes this new style will help bring in more young leaders.

Rhinelander First UMC will continue to hold their contemporary service on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. Watch the full video here.
