Confirmation Class begins for 8th & 9th grade students on Wednesday, Jan 11. Class meets Wednesdays from 6 to 7pm through mid-May.
Pastor David and Julie are organizing a summer youth event for Friday, July 31. We will travel to the Twin Cities to work an afternoon shift packing food at Feed My Starving Children (2:30-4:30) and then attend the evening baseball game at Target Field between the Minnesota Twins and the Seattle Mariners.
We plan to leave the church at 10:30 am, stop for a picnic lunch, work our shift, then go to the ball game and return to Duluth following the game.
Cost for the day will depend on the number attending. Game tickets will be between $20 and $30, and participants will need money for dinner. Sign up in the church office by July 22. Questions? Ask Pastor David.
