2020 Thanksgiving Services

Good evening. I am writing to you to let you know about our Thanksgiving services this year. Due to the fact that our church is not yet open we will have our Thanksgiving service on FB live beginning at 7:00pm on Wednesday evening. We hope that you will be able to join us. Feel free to invite your family and friends to watch as well. We will be taping from our home but Sunday services will be taped back in the Sanctuary. Randy and I would like to thank you so much for being our church “family” and for taking such good care of us. You are all a huge part of what we are thankful for during this Thanksgiving season. We love you all dearly! We wish you all a very Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. Please stay safe!

Scenes from our church!

We thought you might enjoy seeing what’s happening at church while we (for the most part) worship online.

Stay safe everyone!

Happy birthday, Pearl!

Here are just a few of the photos from Pearl’s 90th drive-by-birthday party!

Updates from Granite Falls UCC in response to Covid-19

Greetings.
As you are aware, we are in a new time with the Covid-19 out there. On the advice of the State of Minnesota and the UCC Minnesota Conference we are cancelling all church events until April 1. We will be reevaluating at that time. Randy’s bible study for Wednesday Lenten services will be e-mailed out. Should you know of someone who would like it mailed just let the office know and we will take care of that. Randy is working on a way to get the Sunday sermon to you and will send out a notice when we get that worked out.

Please keep yourselves safe during this time.

We have only 5 days until the Meatball Dinner! We need all hands on deck to get these meatballs ready and to finish everything else that needs to be done. As such, we will be having our Prep Day this Saturday (February 22) at 9:01 a.m. We are counting on all of you to be here if you can.

Remember: If you are working with food you must wear a hat. Any hat will do, but please pick one without any political statements.
