UPCOMING ACTIVITIES

Blood Drive – Wednesday, September 23: The current COVID crisis has upended the whole blood supply chain and caused a massive redesign in the way drives are run. The Memorial Blood Center has in recent weeks restarted community blood drives. In response to COVID and to address safety issues for Donors and MBC staff, we have worked with the MBC to reconfigure the set up for our Fall Blood Drive. Registration will be inside the main entrance with the donation stations set up (well-spaced in fellowship hall) and refreshments and small tables for donors to rest after donating, outside the sanctuary.  This set up will allow us to safely and effectively assist in insuring an adequate blood supply for use in our community. Due to the COVID crisis, sign up will be only online. Please use this LINK. If you have questions, please contact Eric Lunde at 612-695-5618 or erlunde60@gmail.com. Thanks in advance for your support of this important outreach!! 

 

New Brown Bag Study: Three Simple Rules for Christian Living – September 21-October 26, 12:00-1:15 pm: 

What are the three simple rules for Christian living? Where do they come from? Why are they so important for Christians? How can I practice them?  Three Simple Rules for Christian Living offers opportunities to explore these questions and others by reflecting on the three simple rules as presented in the book Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living by Rueben Job.  Do No Harm – Do Good – Stay in Love with God 

We will learn what these rules mean and how we can practice them in our daily life.  Join us as we study Three Simple Rules for Christian LivingSix Weeks beginning September 21.  Facilitated by Judy Sunderland We will be doing the study via zoom. Please RSVP to sunderj328@gmail.com with your name and email address. Books will be ordered based on number of participants. Watch for more detail in the MUMC weekly emails.
