Save the Date: Sunday, October 29th
Sunday October 29th is our annual Soul Food Sunday feast, and we’ll be hosting free flu shots as well. Come for the food, fellowship, and get your annual flu shot!
Fairview Health Systems will be offering free flu vaccinations from 10:00am - 1:00pm in the Church Library for anyone ages 6 months and above. Only shots will be offered, no nasal vaccines. Questions can be directed to me Beth Heinly-Munk at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re Updating the Church Directory!
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be creating a new, updated Church Directory! For this, we need you and your family’s photo and information, if you wish to be included. Please send an email to Amy at email@example.com including as much of the following information as you’re comfortable sharing: A recent family photo, your names, birthdays (we’d love to know your kids’ ages!), address, phone number, email address. If you do not have or cannot provide a family photo, feel free to grab Amy Koopman after church or stop by the church office anytime Monday - Thursday between 10am and 4pm, and Amy can take one for you.
We Need Your (and Your Kids’) Original Artwork & Photography
We are trying something new in the upcoming weeks: Rather than using standard clip-art for our weekly bulletins we’ll be featuring congregant artwork, photography, and drawings. This is open to everyone - children, youth, adults. Please submit your artwork, photography, paintings, or drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to use everything we get (and attribute your work accordingly)!
