Welcome to all who are joining us for worship, whether
in-person or virtually on YouTube. Wearing masks is now optional. However, we encourage you to be aware of those around you who might not have been, or who aren’t able to be, vaccinated. For example, if children are present, be aware that they are vulnerable to COVID-19 because they cannot be vaccinated. Coffee fellowship, provided by Evelyn Henrickson, will be served in the Plymouth Room on the main floor following the service. We have missed everyone and want you back!!!
Offering plates will not be passed during our service but, instead, are at the back of the sanctuary for those who would like to give. Please place your gift in one of the plates before the service begins and an usher will bring them forward during the service.
We extend a warm welcome and greeting to our KXRA listeners this morning. Our service is re-broadcast each 1st Sunday of the month at 11:00 am, and today is sponsored by Donna Myers and children in loving memory of family members.
Pastor Jill invites everyone to join her on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm for “Prayer Connection” on Zoom. As a participant, please refer to the general Zoom connection information printed in these Announcements. Prayer Connection is a drop-in sort of session and no attendance is taken, so join us whenever you wish. We are reminded
by these gatherings how much we need each other and each other’s prayers!

Help needed – for Coffee Fellowship in the Plymouth Room on Sundays following the worship service. There is a sign-up sheet at the back of the sanctuary for upcoming Sundays. (PS – August 8 is still available!). Pam is serving on August 15. Thank you to all who have already signed up!
Also needed: at the back of the sanctuary you will find sign-up sheets for Lefse making, Sunday Readers and Ushers. Please see where you can help. Your participation is so much appreciated!!! Thanks to those who have already accepted a Sunday!!!
Special dates: We are not aware of special dates coming up this week, but we are still collecting them. So let us know about yours and it can be included and everyone can celebrate with you!
Church office hours: We are generally in the building on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10:00 am and about 3:00 pm (oftentimes later). Please ring the bell at the west door if you find the door locked during those regular hours, or call if you have a need to see us another time to make sure we can be around.
“Welcome Back!” Have you made out your guest list yet for the “Welcome Back” bazaar? It is a great way to entertain friends you have not been able to have to your home this past year. I am sure the chairperson of your area of volunteering will arrange your shift so you can sit down and dine with your friends. By the way, men are also welcome guests to our event! Old Doc Fleming broke that barrier by coming years ago. At the old bazaars they even used to have a room of their own! Don’t deprive them of the fun of participating! They love to buy those baked goods, too!
If you need a ride to attend or to pick up your wares, please leave a message in the office. We can help within the City limits! –Kathryn LeBrasseur, Publicity
