Sunday April 11th

Our singers, musicians, and tech guru are taking a well deserved break this week. We will be using the service provided to us by our Minnesota Conference for this purpose. The details of this service are included above in our order of worship. Bishop David Bard will be bringing the message.

Sharing the Journey:

I came across this blog post from the widow of Clint Evans, Sam. I know how special Clint and his family were to this church, and this is a beautifully written piece on the journey of grief. I think that it will resonate with many.
