Christmas Decorating  Come and help beautify the Church for Christmas.  November 30th at 9:30am until we are done for advent and then again Sunday December 22 after the service to change items to Christmas (this shouldn’t take too long if we get help).  We will have many things to do from easy to more difficult and also have some heavy lifting so if we could get some stronger people to come and help that would be great.  Many hands make quick work, please join us.  Question please talk to Jodi Nelson or call her at 612-207-3827

CONSIDER ONLINE GIVING - When weather keeps us from making it to church - the bills seem to continue to make their way.  

Motivated by our Savior’s gifts and promises we want to continue to offer our gifts to him as our response.  Online giving can help with that.  Please contact Dale Mueller for more information at 612-554-9121 or dalem9999@yahoo.com.
