posted Jan 17, 2017, 7:39 AM by Penny Skildum

Pastor Gary will be gone on vacation beginning Monday, January 9th returning to the office Thursday, January 26. Andrew Church ((763-757-2170), pastor of Sunrise United Methodist Church and Sarah Lawton (612-789-7462, pastor of Northeast United Methodist Church have volunteered to be on call for him in case of pastoral emergencies. Please keep this information available and call them if necessary.


Year-End Contribution Statements are now available and ready for you to pick up in the Commons Area.  Please take them home with you to save on postage. 


Fifth Sunday giving is continuing.  The Finance Committee has decided to continue the Fifth Sunday Giving Program which began last year.  Here is the idea:  Most people figure their giving to the church on a monthly basis.  Most months have four Sundays.  So, the FIFTH Sunday is an EXTRA Sunday.  It usually happens four times a year; however, this year we get an additional fifth Sunday for a total of five times.  We are asking you give a little extra on the fifth Sundays.  This extra amount collected for Fifth Sunday giving will be paid directly on the principal of the mortgage.  In 2016, we paid $3285.00 from Fifth Sunday giving.  Thank you so much for your generous support.  We are making a difference.

The next Fifth Sunday is January 29, 2017.

All you need to do to participate is bring in (or mail) a check marked “Fifth Sunday” in the memo.  If you will not be at Worship that day, your check can be brought earlier or mailed in.  The amount is totally up to you.  No amount is too small or too large.  Thank you in advance.  You are the best.  We can do this!
