DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS, CHURCH COUNCIL HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL ALL CHURCH ACTIVITIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WE WILL RESUME THESE EVENTS WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. WATCH OUR FACEBOOK PAGE FOR LIVE MESSAGES ON SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 10:00 AM FROM PASTOR FIEL. IF YOU HAVE ANY NEEDS OF PASTOR MARY, DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT HER. SHE ALSO IS THE CONTACT PERSON FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY NEED ASSISTANCE WITH GETTING GROCERIES OR PICKING UP PRESCRIPTIONS.
If you are like many of us during this pandemic and done some cleaning of closets, garages, and attics and have things that you no longer need or want; consider donating to the WELCA group as we will be hosting a garage sale to earn money for a kithen remodel. Date will be determined when it is safe to have the sale. Check back here or watch for more details on Facebook.
Siloa is scheduled to assist at the Braham Area Food Shelf on Thursdays in July and December.
Even though we are not able to gather at the church, lots is changing. While we are worshipping from home, workers are updating the bathrooms as part of the addition/remodeling project. Whe we return, we will have one handicapped bathroom and one regular bathroom. We will also see a concrete slab near the front of the handicap ramp to make it easier for indiviuals to come and worhsip with us. All of these expenses were previously earmarked for this project. These are just two more reasons it will be exciting to return to worship together.
Siloa is looking for a new organist/pianist. If you are interested or know of someone that might be interested in a part time or full time position, please have them call the church at 320-396-3927 or June Bengtson at 320-396-3237.
