We currently have one “virtual” service each Sunday at 10:30am which will be live-streamed. See the link on our website homepage.

Peace “Pods” at the Sunday Live Stream
Are you interested in being present for the live streaming of worship on a Sunday during the summer?  As part of our planning for the potential return to worship, we are inviting 10 “pods” to be present on Sunday mornings.  A pod is anyone who shares the same “bubble” during the pandemic.  If you are interested, we have an online form for you to fill out. Form must be received in office by Thursday noon.  We will randomly select people to attend.  If you are not able to fill out the form, you can call the office (218-724-3637) and provide the necessary information.  You must be at the church by 10:15am.

11:30am Adult forum on Zoom: Voting for our Children with Gayle Kelly. Because this day is designated Children’s Sabbath, the time when we focus on our children and lifting them up, we want to spend this day focusing on our children and voting.  What are the ways we’re engaged with supporting our kids in this time and what does that have to do with the election?  How do we “vote for our children?”  We’ll hear from Gayle Kelly, who has worked as a leader of Head Start for years, sharing her experience of how to lift up our kids and how our public policies can best support their well-being.  We’ll also spend some time learning more about the work of the Children’s Defense Fund and how can we support their work.
