Here we are, entering the month of February. The church year is well underway. Some of you might wonder, “Where has the “forum” part of our Sunday fellowship been?” It has indeed been missing. On the other hand, folks have certainly continued to enjoy the “fellowship” with many staying after the service and enjoying coffee, cookies and on some Sundays, cake.
The change in service times has certainly made us aware of time constraints for presenters. The committee also recognizes that the need for just talk and visiting time is important. All that being said, we are planning to have some “forum” talks in February.
We opened the month with Feb. 3 as a coffee, cookies and conversation only Sunday.
On 2/10 we will welcome visiting pastor…. from Liberia. He will preach at the worship services and will be available at our forum for a short presentation and questions.
The following 2 Sundays there will be short presentations given by URLC members. Sunday 2/17 Paul Rockne will give a short talk on the Community Trust Fund Pastor. Then on 2/25 Wayne Radke and Leah Wichman are going to give a short overview of the planned celebration of the 150th birthday of Zumbrota’s very own Covered Bridge
As you can see the “forum” still exists! We’re getting it jump started again and promise to bring interesting topics to you.
As always, coffee and cookies depend on volunteers for making and serving on Sundays. A calendar is passed around for sign-up. Please think about it when it comes your way.
2/3: Coffee and conversation
2/10: Guest Preacher : Pastor Simon Choat, the Synodically Authorized Minister at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Austin. He hails from Sudan and will share his story.
2/17: Paul Rockne- Info on the Community Trust Fund
2/24: Information on Covered Bridge 150th Birthday celebration
