INVITE SOMEONE TO WORSHIP AT PILGRIM POINT CAMP ON SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 7TH
A “Must Read” – Copies of our revised Safe Church Policy and Conditional Attendance Agreement are available at the back of the sanctuary or from the Church office. Everyone is encouraged to familiarize yourself with these new documents. Thank you–Church Council
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH, Worship With Us at Pilgrim Point Camp! We have reserved the recreation hall at Pilgrim Point Camp for our annual Camp Worship service on Sunday, September 7th. There is PLENTY of parking! The camp is just a 15-minute drive from town. The address is: 2059 Pilgrim Point Rd NW, Alexandria, MN 56308. Take CR 34 North (past Carlos Creek Winery); turn left at the sign for the Camp on Pilgrim Point Rd. Following worship, we will enjoy a potluck meal. Please bring a cooked dish to share, a salad, or dessert. Table service and beverages will be provided. Envelopes marked “Pilgrim Point Camp” are available at the Ushers’ table if you’d like to make a donation to the Camp. Checks should be made payable to the Church and marked for the Camp. That way you will be able to get credit on your giving statement for the Camp donation. Thank you!
Note: Since we will be at the Camp on the 1st Sunday of the month (which is usually KXRA broadcast Sunday), our broadcast will be aired on the 2nd Sunday in September, which is September 14th, instead.
The New (Pink) Phone Books have been printed and assembled (thanks to my volunteer team of Sandy Hill & Quinn, JoAnne Norling, Celesta Podolske and Romayne Strand) and are available at the back of the sanctuary on the pedestal.-Barb, office
Even when you are away on vacation—please do your best to keep your financial pledges current. Our bills and expenses keep on coming and thanks to your contributions, we are able to keep on
serving. If you need a copy of your giving statement, please contact the Church office and one will be prepared for you. Thanks again, and have a wonderful, joyful, restful (?!) vacation and return safely to us.
In an Effort to be More Accessible, we have re-configured our seating for Sunday fellowship. Since the big round table is closest to the back of the Church, it is best suited for folks in wheel chairs and those who use walkers. Note that the upright pedestal tables are furthest from the sanctuary and are best suited for those who do not require seating. Let’s try this new seating arrange-ment for a couple of weeks and see what adjustments may be necessary. Thank you
Thank You for Sitting Further Forward—Not only will you have a better view of things on Sunday morning, but our many guests who watch the service on Charter Cable 7 and U-stream will know that someone is actually IN Church! Thank you for your flexibility.
Please Vote for Hymn-sing Sundays: The Ushers will have some yellow “ballots” on which you may indicate some of your favorite hymns that we might sign on the last Sunday of each month for our Hymn-sing Sundays. Please place your ballot in the offering plate anytime and we’ll draw from the ballots on the last Sundays of each month. Thanks for your input-Worship Planning Team
