Zoom Fellowship


Zoom Fellowship will begin on Sunday, November 1 from 11:00 to 11:30 am. The purpose of this is twofold: 1) to connect with people and 2) to talk about a fun topic! For November 1, All Saints Sunday, the topic will be – what deceased loved one do you remember fondly?

November Sunday School kits

November Sunday School Kits for Toddler through 6th grade are available starting November 1st.  Kits are located in the Narthex, or call the church office (218-739-3348) or click the button for a kit delivered to you.  Check out the Playlist “Sunday School November 2020” for songs, books, and the story to go with our November kits.

Mitten Ministry

We are collecting new mittens, hats & scarves (purchased or homemade) to help those in need of winter wear. Please leave your donation in the basket in the Narthex.

Change to Make Change

There is a large plastic bottle in the Narthex and we invite you to put your spare change in the bottle. The money collected will go to help feed the hungry – 75% locally and 25% worldwide.
