We are in search of folks who would be willing to volunteer to serve as daycare attendants this Sunday
and possibly next Sunday as well. We are once again in a transition in the daycare department and are working
actively to hire new employees to handle our Sunday and Wednesday daycare needs.
If you would be interested in helping us bridge the gap over the next few weeks, please shoot us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com), give us a call here in the office (701-232-6844), or contact Pastor Martin (605-651-9096).
Also, if you would be interested in applying for the position of daycare or if you know someone who might be in search of a part-time job, please contact us as well! We hope to have this position filled as soon as possible.
Just a reminder that November 29th will be a Service Sunday, a day for us to BE THE CHURCH by volunteering for community outreach projects. More information will follow shortly on our plans and projects! Sign-up sheets are posted on the volunteer board in the hallway at the church!

We are in search of people who would be interested in being readers during the advent season.
We'd like to have 4 readers at each service during Advent (both the traditional and contemporary).
The readings will be simple, consisting of one sentence, which will be read from within
the congregation. This will occur towards the beginning of each service and will begin on Sunday,
We are also in search of families who would like to participate in the lighting of candles on the Advent wreath. We would be in search of families to do this at both the traditional and contemporary services starting December 6th.
Contact the office if you would be interested or if you have questions. A signup sheet will be posted in the lobby as well.
Our second PUB THEOLOGY group was a success! Eleven folks met up last night at Herd and Horns to engage in wonderful conversation on the topic of what, in everyone's own words, did it mean to be Christian as the term is applied. We spent an hour sharing our thoughts and stories on how we applied ourselves as Christians and what it meant to us to consider ourselves as such. With the diverse backgrounds and faith journeys of the group, it became an awesome discussion.
Thanks to everyone present last night, it means so much to see all of you whether I've known you for some time or if we just met last night! And thanks to the folks at Herd and Horns for hosting us and our group. We appreciate the wonderful room and good service provided by the staff there!
We'll take December off due to the holiday season, but we meet up again on Monday, January 25th when we open up a discussion on PRAYER. Discussion points will include how we pray, if there is a right or wrong reason or way to pray, what we pray about or for, and how we share the power of prayer with others.
Be well, all! And Happy Thanksgiving!
