The Big 3

#1) Nine Marks Sunday School Classes:
For the next nine weeks, adult Sunday School classes are studying and discussing the book Nine Marks of a Healthy Church. We encourage high school students to attend with their  parents.  This is a great way for us to grow deeper in our understanding of God’s design for the church. 
One copy of the book is provided free of charge for each family in the church at the table in the café area. You may also purchase additional copies by putting $10 in the offering.  There are just a few copies remaining, and we will order more books, if necessary.  
Sunday School Classrooms and Teachers:
Room 106:  Mike Austin
Room 109:  Bill Menke/John Christensen
Room 110:  Michael Bender/Jon Brown
Room 117:  Donn Hill
Fellowship Hall:  Jim Power
Youth Room:  Jeff Burch
#2) Women’s Ministry Service Event:
On Friday, January 17th women of all ages are invited to knit and crochet hats and scarves for Compassion Childcare. We are also looking for donations of yarn you may no longer need.  Please put the yarn in the box in the foyer. If knitting is not your skill, join us in the kitchen to bake for the freezer ministry! Please bring a non-peanut snack to share. The event begins at 6:30pm in the Fellowship Hall. *Please note the previous bulletin incorrectly said 5:30pm instead of 6:30 pm.* If you have questions please contact Mary Lynne at 612-209-0578 or 
#3) Membership Class: 
On Sunday, January 19th from 11:30-3pm in the Fellowship Hall, we will  have a class for those interested in church membership. We will explore our ministries and the doctrine of the Evangelical Free church. If you are interested in finding out more about our Church, we would love to have you there!

Summer NotesVBS & Hidden Acres: We will be hosting our own VBS this summer. The dates are July 12-17, 2020. Mark your calendars and begin inviting other friends. More information will be coming soon. Also, this summer we would love to send as many students as possible to Hidden Acres, a fantastic Christian Camp in Dayton, Iowa. There are camps for many different age groups. The church is providing a $175 voucher for any student who wants to attend. These vouchers are available from the church office. Visit for more information and to register your children.   
Christmas Eve Offering: The offering collected for Compassion Childcare ended up being $60,032.00 Thank you for your generous hearts!
Instrumental Fun Night: Instrumental Fun night takes place on Friday evenings and is for anyone who wants to have a casual time of playing your instrument in a group setting. It's especially good for those who haven't played for a few years and get their lips or fingers back in condition. We call it our "therapy" and don't care if you make mistakes, just make a joyful noise.  Contact Pam Fitch if interested via e-mail at or by phone at 605-201-1499.
