Panama 2019 Informational Meeting – Sunday, August 12, 10:45 following worship: We are excited to announce we will be returning to Panama for the International Mission trip scheduled for January 25 – February 2, 2019. We will be serving in Santa Fe, Veragus, Panama. The team will need people to work in several areas: construction, Vacation Bible School, dental clinic and family health. This is a wonderful opportunity to be in service to our Panamanian sisters and brothers in need of our love and care. If you are interested in learning more about the trip, plan to attend an informational meeting August 19, at 10:45 am. Any questions or if you are interested in joining the team but unable to attend, please contact Judy Sunderland, jsunder@msn.com or 612-849-3027. 

 

Brown Bag – Mondays, August 13, 20 & September 10 – Sold Out: Affordable Housing at Risk:  Affordable housing is under constant threat from changing economic forces and urban development that break up vital communities. Low-income residents have fewer and fewer options, and local businesses and schools must deal with the impact of losing those families. Come watch a video and join the discussion on this critical issue in our own community. This video was produced by TPT along with the MN Housing Partnership. Signup in Fellowship on the slat wall. For questions, contact Judy Sunderland at the church office or judy.sunderland@minnetonkaumc.org 

 

Mom’s Group, Tuesday, August 14, 6:30-8:30 pm: Join other moms in fellowship and fun.  Childcare is available.  For more information, please talk with Pastor Tiffany or April Townsend. 

Book Discussion, August 19, 10:45 am – A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota: The Commission on Religion and Race (CORR) invites you to a book discussion.  Our book is A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota, edited by Sun Yung Shin. Minnesota has stark racial disparities, and sixteen authors write about what it is like to live as a person of color in our state.  Books are available at church for $13 each.  

 

Sign Changers Needed:  We are in need of people to change the 101 Sign for September-December.  Sayings are provided each week. Sign up in Fellowship Hall on the slat wall or contact the church office if you are interested.  Thank you for providing support for this important ministry.
