Announcements for 7-25-21

 Happy Anniversary: We would like to wish Don and Doris Calkins a Happy 60th Wedding anniversary on August 4th with a card shower. If you wish to send them a card their address is: 1478 Creekwood Dr., New Richmond, WI 54017

 

Thank you: for the prayers, cards, meals and expressions of sympathy in the loss of Todd. We appreciate all the acts of kindness you’ve shown to our family during this difficult time. The Warntjes family ~ Heidi, Mitchell, Anna, Isaac, Avery & Gavin

**We are looking for volunteers to help with Coffee Break.  Responsibilities include:  Serving Coffee, Juice, and Cookies after Sunday Morning Worship.   ALL of the supplies will be provided by church. Serving will happen in the gathering space.  If you are willing to serve in this important ministry, please sign up for date(s) that work for you and your family. Signup sheet will be in the gathering space!

**Save the date!  Night of Renewal is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 7pm in the First Reformed Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome to join us for snacks and fellowship as we hear testimonies from Missy Bass and Heather Erickson, both of Hills, MN.  These mothers are apart of Game Plan 4 Hope, which was started in Sept. 2019.  It rose out of the hearts of two families who have been through life-altering experiences and felt the need to help others that are going through similar situations. Please join us in hearing their personal stories and the mission of Game Plan 4 Hope.
