Travel to Morocco

Travel to Morocco with Intrepid Tours
June 10 – 24, 2019

Aromatic tajines, palm-spotted, red-earthed landscapes and limitless generosity define the home of the Maghreb. Any visit, whether one

week or one month, will give you a glimpse of the friendliness, vibrancy and flavor of this Berber-Arab-Spanish-Portuguese-French melting pot.

Contact Marggi at 507.732.7303 if you are interested in going on this exciting adventure.

Gift Cards for Sale

We have our order forms for many different gift cards at both entrances to the Sanctuary, & in front of the Main Office. An order will go in on Monday, Dec. 10th. Each retailer you buy a card from gives the URLC Youth back a percentage on the money you spent on the cards! It’s a great fundraiser as it helps you buy Christmas presents, & gives the Youth account some money at the same time. Please drop off your order form at the main office, or with Cindy.

Goodhue County Christmas project

Grab a giving ornament today!

It’s time once again for us to help with the Goodhue County Christmas project. This year we have the names of only 3 families that are in need of our help. Toys are provided by the Marines Toys for Tots program in Red Wing. We are asked to provide food and clothing for these families.

Please take an ornament (or 2) from the tree in the back of the sanctuary. Wrap the clothing items and attach the ornament to the package. Bring the wrapped clothing and donated food to the church office by Sunday, December 9th.

Be sure to sign your name on the sheets provided.

We also appreciate cash donations to buy additional food for the families. Thank your for sharing!
