Communion-Starting today, you are welcome to come up front for Holy Communion. Please follow the instructions of the ushers, the Pastor and communion assistant. When you come up front, the Pastor will drop a wafer in your hand. The communion assistant will place a cup on a table in front of them for you to pick up. There will be a trash can to throw away the cup. You will exit the hallway door. If you prefer an individual cup, they will be available in the back. These practices follow the ELCA Care-full Worship Guidelines.

We will be having 2 services moving forward 8:30am & 10:45am. Sunday School 9:45am

Looking for garden/landscape volunteers.  The plants and flowers in the prayer garden and around the perimeter of the church (and food pantry) will soon be blooming.  Along with flowers blooming come the dreaded weeds, vines, and trash that accumulate in the beds.  If you would like to help out in any way (using weed killer in the parking lot, pulling weeds, sawing off low lying tree branches, picking up litter etc.) please let Becky Sweet know.  It's a great way to stay active and be outside in the fresh air and making the property look nice in our community.  All ages are welcome!

 

Easter Breakfast-We will be having Easter breakfast at 9:30am Easter morning in between services. We will follow the same guidelines we did with Pastors brunch. I will be sending those out in the weeks ahead.

 

Youth Activity-The youth will be going to Young’s Dairy on April 18, 2021 at 1:00 pm. We will meet at Young’s.

 

Mid-Week Service starting this week will be on Tuesdays- We will have a mid-week service every Tuesday starting at 12:00pm. You may watch on Facebook live or attend in person.
