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. Children and Youth Sunday School classes begin at about 9:45 a.m., following Children’s Time. 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 a.m. in the Fireside Room. On February 18 the class began a new study entitled “A World Worth Saving: Lenten Spiritual Practices for Action” by George Hovaness Donigan. We will be looking at the relationship between spiritual practices and service to the world.
Coming Soon . . .
- March is Minnesota FoodShare Month
Faith UMC has set a goal of collecting 1,500 pounds of food/dollars for Neighbors Inc. now through April 8. The annual Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign serves as Neighbors, Inc’s biggest food and fund drive of the year. Not only does it help stock the shelves for the busy summer months ahead, but it also helps them secure funding that is distributed later in the year – meaning a donation between now and April 8 goes even further. Bring (or send) your contributions to church to help us reach our goal — and help Neighbors all year long.
