February Encounter

Please see attached for February’s Encounter.


  • Enclosed in the Encounter are the lists for Church Responsibilities of Fellowship Time and Cleaning the Upstairs of the church.
  • The church is in great need of more ushers for Sunday mornings. A few people take the entire month, but there are times when there is just not anyone to fill-in. February and January are especially short. Please give the church office 320-564-2442 a call if you would like to go onto the ushering list. One perk of this task is that you get to pull the rope to ring that wonderful big bell!
