This Sunday, is Sanctity of Life Sunday. We will be having a special guest from Robbinsdale Women’s Center. More information about this organization can be found at www.mychoicetwincities.com
 
There will also be a special showing of the movie “Unplanned” on Sunday night at 7:00 pm. Details on the movie below.
 
On Sunday night at 7 pm, we will be showing the film “Unplanned” in the sanctuary. About the movie: “As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, Abby Johnson was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women on their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in. Until the day she saw something that changed everything.”

This film is rated “R” for some disturbing/bloody images (topic is abortion). For students who want to attend, we encourage parents to accompany them. Students under 17 years old without a parent present must have a permission slip signed by a parent or guardian. Download the permission slip here: Permission Slip

Sunday Services: Indoors at 9:00 & 10:45 am

 

Masks are required for all those attending. We are limited to 50% capacity in the sanctuary. Overflow seating will be available in the Commons. Offering plates will not be passed; instead, we will have offering boxes stationed around the sanctuary and our online giving will continue as normally. We will be practicing social distancing and keeping up with sanitizing protocols. There will be extra masks, face shields, gloves, and hand sanitizer available to anyone who may need them. For the time being, we are pausing our coffee service. Please feel free to bring your own!

Services will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube at 9:00 am. If you are not comfortable returning to indoor worship at this time, we invite you to watch and interact online. No matter how we worship, we are all one body.

PreK-5th grade children’s ministry will continue indoors at the 9 am service only. We will have ministry for birth-5th grade. Children under 5 years of age will not be required to wear masks. The nursery will be available and staffed with volunteers at both services.

Here is some info on what to expect:
 

We are moving to a CURBSIDE model of service. Both existing and new clients are being asked to park along the curb on Main Street in front of the food shelf – please be sure to begin the line of vehicles all the way down to the four-way stop and WAIT in your vehicle until a volunteer brings a shopping list of available foods. Additional instructions will be given at this time. If you do not have a vehicle please wait on the green bench outside our front door and we will assist you. Please note that NO clients will be served inside the food shelf at this time.

If you are sick please DO NOT come to the food shelf – send an adult to get food on your behalf or call and we will do our best to make arrangements.

We will keep our Facebook page and our phone message (763-477-6098) current with any updates in food service.

Thank you for your patience as we understand that this is a different way of doing business at the food shelf. It will allow us to follow CDC guidelines while serving clients in a safe and orderly way and provide food with love for every table!
