really need your help! The Mega Sale pickup trailer is missing!
Please keep an look out for it. The trailer is missing fender on
passenger side. We really need to get it back. Our ability to keep up
with pickups for the sale is greatly affected by its absence!
Our bell choir,
Sounds of Grace, needs help. If you would like to learn to participate with the bells without making a permanent commitment at this time, why not look into being a substitute. If you have some music background and can read music, contact Jan Potasnak at 763-425-9570 and find out if it would work for you!
year's Gala, A Homegrown Christmas, is scheduled for Sunday, December 7th. This year our many music and worship groups will be presenting their music and dance,
along with an old fashioned carol sing. The Silent Auction begins at 2:00
pm and the concert begins at 3:00 pm. Admission is $15.00 for adults
with 18 & under free. Tickets are now on sale in the church office and will be
available at the door.
Work has begun to find items for the
silent auction as part of this year's Gala. We need all types of donations such as cabin stays, hotel and restaurant gift cards, retail gift cards, new or like new gift items, antiques, musical instruments, etc. We would also like to invite new members to join the planning committee. WE HAVE FUN and make a big dent in the general fund for the church.
