What is coming is better than what is gone! Our Congregation is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year! We are planning four special events throughout the year to help us not only remember God’s blessings upon us in the past, but to think about how we can serve God and this community in the future. Our first activity will be on February 26. We have invited Patrick Miller, a son of the congregation who entered the pastoral ministry, to be our preacher for our worship service on that day. We will have a potluck dinner after the worship service. Stay tuned for information about other activities.

EVERYONE is invited to a FAMIILY GAME NIGHT February 24, 7:30 p.m. Bring your favorite game and family snack to share. We’ll play until we drop. Bulletin Board Photos Jane & Gorlyn Bronstad will be taking photos of our members during the month of February. If your photo is not on the board, or if you want to update your photo, come to the Grace Library (at back of Fellowship Hall) after early or late service and have your picture taken!
