Julie Harstad (daughter of Ed and Karen Balsbaugh) of Fertile, Minnesota was recently awarded the Outstanding Service to Education Award by the Fertile-Beltrami Education Foundation.  Julie started an after-school Physical Education Program twelve years ago that has involved several hundred kids over the years.

haitian jewelry sale

Jan Jones will once again be selling Haitian Jewelry at church on May 6th!

In addition to selling jewelry, Jan will also be displaying metal artwork for sale as well.  These pieces are made out of 55-gallon oil drums, and the ones TeacHaiti is selling are extremely well done.  They cost $30 to $50 depending on the size.  These pieces are quite expensive when purchased here in the US, so these are a bargain.

Jan will be selling these products between services in the Fellowship Hall.  Proceeds will benefit the TeacHaiti organization.

children's bags

If you're looking for a way to volunteer over here at the church and you've got a few hours free during the day during the week, we're looking for one or two people to come and fix up the children's bags!  We've got lots of donated supplies and we'd just like to get the bags restocked and squared away so that kids have fresh new activities to keep them occupied at church!  

Contact Christopher is you'd like to come in and help out with this easy project!

service sunday - april 29th

This month, we have five Sundays!  With that being said, we will be offering our church family

the opportunity to go outside of the church walls and doors to serve those who are in need of

help on April 29th!  Most service projects will begin at 10am (with the exception of the Churches

United Brunch Project, which begins at 7:30am and 9:00am).

We are also offering a full worship service that morning as well!  The worship service will take place at 9am, this being a regular traditional worship service.  We will be serving Communion that morning as well.  Following the service, those who wish to be a part of a service project will disperse out to their project or report to their project in the Fellowship Hall.

There will be no 11:00am Contemporary Worship Service on April 29th due to the service projects that will be in action at that time.

More information will be made available regarding Service Sunday this coming Sunday morning!
