I hope you are doing well this week. Here are a few announcements:
We are hosting a vaccination clinic on Monday, October 10th. If you would like the updated booster and/or a flu vaccination, please text or call my cell, 612-280-6493, and I will give you an appointment time. These are filling fast, so please contact me at your earliest convenience.
Tonight, Wednesday evening meals begin at 5:30 pm-6 pm. Please come and join us for a family friendly meal. We can visit together until 6:30 pm, and then we’ll turn the Fellowship Hall back over to our youth for their evening youth group activities.
Confirmation classes begin at 6 pm this evening, followed by Middle School and High School Youth Group at 7:15 pm. We are planning for our middle school youth to stay for Youth Group after confirmation classes end at 7 pm. Parents you may pick up after Youth Group at 8:15 pm. A “Welcome Back Bonfire,” is planned for Wednesday, October 5th, at 7:15 pm for all Middle and High School students!
Pastor Tim’s farewell reception is Sunday, October 9th, following the 10 am worship. Pastor Tim has accepted a call with Portico. We wish him many blessings in his ministry and will miss him! If you can’t be with us, and wish to, please send your cards and greetings to the Church Office and we will see that he gets them.
Please remember to sign up for the Women’s Gathering Event on October 8! What a wonderful opportunity to gather for fellowship, worship, speakers and renewal!
