Happy birthday, Pearl!

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

Congratulations to our 2020 Confirmands!

Image is of two young women in front of a brightly colored banner with the image of three crosses on a field of hills. Text says "The greatest view comes after the hardest climb." The women are holding ziploc bags of cloth face masks and each is wearing a mask of her own.

Congratulations to this year’s confirmands, Kaylia and Samone. We wish you luck and success – in both your faith and all your future adventures.

For those wishing to participate in today’s confirmation service be sure to log in for the live stream on our Facebook page at 7 p.m.

Updates from Granite Falls UCC in response to Covid-19

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.

Meatball Dinner Prep

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.
