Cancellation of Province VI ECW Meeting Oct. 1 - 3, 2021 in Rapid City

Dear All - Province VI President Heather Bauer has notified us that the Province VI ECW Annual Meeting planned in conjunction with a National ECW Board visit has been canceled due to the current COVID situation. 

This is most unfortunate, and a lost opportunity to meet so many friends in Christ from all over the USA. At the same time, we are awaiting the time when we will know the final plans for our own Fall ECMN Convention and also look forward to hopefully having a Zoom meeting for ECW ECMN if we cannot meet in person in Bemidji. President LaDonna Boyd will make an announcement as soon as the diocesan meeting gets final approval, but that may be October 10 or later. News will be sent to all in the Fall ECW Newsletter and the E-News online ASAP. 

So watch, pray, and keep up your good works! Yes, we are truly in this together! 

Love and prayers to all,
Elizabeth Campbell, ECW ECMN Secretary
Northfield, Minnesota
The sign-up sheets for volunteering at Connections Shelter are all filled in and we are ready to go! Thanks so much to all of you who signed up for meals and/or shifts. Thanks to those who have made donations and to those who keep our shelter ministry in prayer. It is all greatly appreciated! I know you'll want to know how everything went the first week (October 4-10), so watch this space for an update! 

Thanks again, Audrey Splinter, St. John's Shelter Coordinator

October 3
The flowers are given by the Rev. Cindi Brickson
in loving memory of her father, Jim Brickson.

We will have two bouquets on our Holy Communion Sundays. If you wish to furnish flowers, the cost is $30.00 per Sunday for 2 bouquets. After worship, an altar guild member will present the flowers to a church member who cannot regularly join us. Please consider being a part of this important ministry. There is a sign-up sheet on the narthex bulletin board.
