It is for our own safety and that of the older as well as the vulnerable population.
As this pandemic continues, please remember to be as safe as possible, and encourage those who may not have been vaccinated to get their vaccines and for those who has had their vaccines should go for their booster shots.

Message from Pastor Leanne
I can feel winter coming. The air is really cold today, and moist, and I am primed, ready for the first snow. My lawn furniture is covered, my plants over-wintered, and I have plenty of logs for some soothing fires soon to be made in my fireplace. I have apple cider, waiting to be warmed for a cold winter’s night and quilts folded over the back of the sofa. Winter is no problem - bring it on. I can’t wait to be safely indoors by a roaring fire while the snow blankets the world in white. And, I know, by February, I will be aching to get out into the garden and tired of the winter cold. I will be sick of shoveling snow and of trying to maneuver around drifts. Still, I love the change of seasons in North Dakota -. There’s just something satisfying about being part of the cycles of nature.
As we close out the harvest and fasten down for winter, I can’t help but slide into a grateful frame of mind. The year has definitely had its challenges; because of the pandemic we have found ourselves constantly adapting to changing circumstances, but God has been faithful all the way through. Our church is strong, our families are safe, our prayers have been answered and our basic needs met. No, it hasn’t been perfect, but it has been enough. God is good.
And this one thing I am absolutely sure of: through every season, every change, every circumstance, God’s grace is faithful, and will continue to lead us through the next season of life.
As the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
