We hope you will join us for worship on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday morning services follow a traditional order of Christian worship with a variety of music, prayers, and a sermon. Our services are very visitor-friendly, last approximately one hour and are followed by fellowship time in the Fellowship Hall. An adult Sunday School class meets at 10:50 in the Fireside Room.
Due to the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Oakdale and Wentworth, that intersection will be closed from June 10 through August. Check out the Dakota County website for more information about the project.
The June/July Faith In Action is available here.
Mark your calendar:

June 4 – Last Day of the Regular Choir Season
The choir’s last song of the season was We Believe, with Rebecca singing the solo. Rebecca and Choir Director John Kemp are pictured to the right.
The choir was back . . . . Although they do take the summer off, the choir sings once a month during the summer. Today (July 16) they sang Keep Us Whole, composed by Linda Kachelmeier, who wrote it on commission in 2008 for The Village Church of Milwaukee. Linda has served as the Minister of Music at First Presbyterian of South St. Paul for the last 28 years. She was a member of the internationally acclaimed Rose Ensemble for many years and now performs with Lumina Women’s Ensemble, which she formed.
Ice Cream Month Celebration – July 12, 2017
Members of the church gathered in the parking lot (which is a temporary Park ‘n’ Ride for Metro Transit) to pass out Klondike bars and water bottles to folks who got off the buses, as well as to people in the neighborhood who stopped by. It was fun to see the looks on the faces of the recipients as they received their free treats. Click here for more pictures.

Park & Ride
This summer and into the fall Metro Transit will be using 45-75 spaces in our parking lot to accommodate the Park & Ride normally located at the Sports Complex on the corner of Wentworth and Oakdale. They will be using the spaces closest to Schletty Lane on Mondays through Fridays. When you come, please park farther south in the lot closer to the kitchen doors. Thank you.
