Decorating for Christmas
Wednesday | December 2 | 8:30 AM

Come and help decorate the church for Christmas on Wednesday, December 2nd at 8:30 AM! We are still in need of about five more volunteers. It typically takes 3-4 hours to get all setup. Even if you have to arrive late or leave early, we still hope you’ll join us!


Salvation Army Volunteers
We have the opportunity to help raise funds for our community by signing up to ring the bell for an hour at Walmart this Christmas season. Ninety percent of the money dropped in a kettle goes right back into our community! 

Bell ringing is every Friday evening from 5-9 PM and Saturdays from 10 AM - 8 PM from the weekend after Thanksgiving until the weekend before Christmas Eve. When you sign up you receive the Covid-19 information as well as details. You should also receive a reminder email as your ringing date approaches. 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, you will need to stay 12 feet from the main entrance and exit. You are to set up on the south side of the main entrance door. Pastor Scott Krohn will bring the stand and supplies on Fridays by 5:00 PM and pick up by 9:00 PM. Saturday's he will do the same at 10:00 AM. and 8:00 PM to pick the supplies up. Pastor Scott will give his cell phone number to the ringers on sight. This is a great mission for those in need, in our community - thank you in advance for your participation!
