ACOLYTES – Parents of children in third grade and up, please see our “SignUpGenius” site to get your child signed up to light candles in 2020!  The link is posted to our church website for your convenience.
 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A thought from the Mission Board . . .
Part of showing and sharing our love of God is to love and nurture his creations.  Over the next year we will be highlighting different ways we can show that love.  We are beginning our focus on cutting down on the amount of garbage we create.

We’d like to encourage you to bring your own coffee mug or tumbler with you rather than getting a disposable cup.

We invite everyone to begin this by bringing one to Sunday morning coffee at church, to Sunday School, to meetings, to the Community Meal!

The Worship Board will be arranging for altar flowers
 in the future thanks to the generous donation from Elaine Zoeller.  If there is a Sunday that would have a special meaning to you and you would like to provide the flowers, please sign up on the large calendar by the coat closet with your name and who the flowers are in memory/ honor of.  Whether you order an arrangement and have it delivered or make your own arrangements from consumer bouquets and place them on the altar, please know we appreciate your sharing your special memories with us!  Please contact Janine Draper at                            507-236-3499.

The Martin County Library in Fairmont is excited to begin offering “Library on Wheels”
to homebound residents.  If you or someone you know is homebound, the library will deliver up to five items to their home each month.  You tell us what you like or enjoy, we’ll pick it out for you and deliver!  If you are interested in learning more, call Chris at 238-4207 or email chasek@tds.lib.mn.us.  Don’t have a library card?  No problem…we can get that up and running for you too!
