FoC Covid19 Update


SUNDAY, May 16:

8:30am- In-Person Worship with Holy Communion (Reservation Required)

10:00am- Livestream Worship on our YouTube Channel & In-Person (Reservation Required).


HOLY COMMUNION will be celebrated during livestream worship this Sunday, May 16 and again on May 23.  Please prepare a special bread and special wine/grape juice on this Sunday to share with those in your home who regularly commune.

ALTAR FLOWERS  A gift of flowers for Sunday worship is a lovely and meaningful way to remember a loved one, a special occasion, or a blessing received. For a very affordable $25, we will create a beautiful fresh arrangement to adorn the altar, which you may take home after Sunday worship, if you’d like. Sign up HERE. *If you do take the flowers home, we ask that you later return the vase to the church during regular office hours.

PASTORAL CARE & PRAYER REQUESTS  Reach out to Pastor Josh or Pastor Kimberly with any prayer concerns or troubles you may be facing.  If there is something they can do to help you, they sure will try, and that goes for the church staff and the church council too.  Use their emails, cell phones numbers or leave a message on the church phone (952-934-5659) and they will get back to you.
