News and Notes

Help Needed:  As we continue to live stream our worship service, help is needed.  We also need help with the chromebook on the weeks that recorded music is being used. Both tasks are easy to learn, and if enough folks are willing to help, no one person will get burned out. Instruction will be provided. If you are interested, please contact Jewel Townsend or the church office.

The ants go marching one by one... We are experiencing ants in the building. We ask that no food is left out or behind in the building. Thank you.

Evangelism Emphasis for the Month of June- Eagle’s Nest of Sauk  Centre

During the month of June, we will be supporting the ministry to veterans (and their families) in Sauk Centre known as the Eagle’s Nest. It is run entirely by volunteers and is privately funded. There are 100 veterans who receive their board and lodging there and who are “given a hand up, not a hand out” as one person there said. Professionals also donate their time to help with PTSD, suicide, and other forms of trauma. The Eagle’s Nest provides a safe place for veterans and their families to enjoy a variety of activities to include: woodworking, working with metal, Bible study, Rock band, recording studio, horses, and gardening to name a few of the things offered. If you’re interested you can follow their work on Facebook.

Get To Know Your Neighbor: If you would like to share your story after worship service, please contact Jewel Townsend to sign up for your week of choice.
