UPDATED CHANGES TO OUR CHURCH SCHEDULE:    

As of June 10,2020 we have space for 90 per the 50% of capacity limit.  We will continue to stream services live on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kogblaine.  Sunday Morning Bible Class is via Zoom at 10:30am.

If you are a member and NOT receiving emails from the church, please contact the church office at secretary@kingofgloryblaine.org.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND and follow the safety protocols that have been put in place as we reopen for in person services.  

OFFERINGS can be mailed to the church - THANK YOU to all that have mailed your gifts and offerings to the church during this time! You can also make your giving automatic through Simply Giving or Give Plus.  Information about both of these options was emailed out.  If you didn't receive that email and would like more information, contact the church office.

ALTAR FLOWERS: Now that we are back in church, we need flowers to brighten things up.  Do you have a special occasion that you could provide flowers, such as an anniversary, birthday, or a day to remember a loved one the Lord has called home?  There is a flower chart on the wall to sign up!  There are plenty of open Sundays this summer! Please indicate your occasion or let the church secretary know by Wednesday if you would like an announcement in the bulletin.

SERVICE IN THE PARK and CHURCH PICNIC is next Sunday.  Mark your calendar - service will be at 10:00 am in the park.  After service, we will have a time of fellowship.  Bring a lunch and drink for yourself/your family.  We will not be passing food this year.  Bring a lawn chair if you want.  We will bring chairs from the church if you don’t want to bring yours.  See you there!

CHURCH PROPERTIES BOARD needs a few new, hopefully younger, volunteers.  We are shorthanded!  This is a great way to contribute to your church.  Tell Steve that you can help!

VBS IS HERE! This year’s theme is “Aliens: Called To Be Different.”  You can pick up your VBS box today for Week 1. If you haven’t registered yet, you can still do that, and just pick up 2 week’s worth next week. A registration link is on the Facebook page and on the church website.  If you need help registering, please call the church office. This isn’t just for the young in the congregation, it’s also for the young at heart!

THIRD QUARTER DISTRICT AND SYNOD OFFERING will be collected during the month of August.  If you wish to contribute, please put your contribution in an envelope marked “District and Synod Missions.”  You can either put it in the offering plate any Sunday in August or you can mail it to the church office.  The  offering will be sent to the District Office during the week following Sunday, August 30.

RENEE WILL BE OUT OF THE OFFICE the week of August 9 and will be returning Monday, August 17.  I will be putting together the bulletin and announcements for both August 9 and August 16 this week.  If you have any announcements for either bulletin, please have them to me by Wednesday, Aug 5.

CALMS is celebrating 20 years of ministry in connecting U.S. and Central America leaders in mission and service.  Despite the current challenges preventing U.S. partners and volunteers from traveling to Central America, there are in-country representatives to act as the bridge by which all our Christian care and love must travel.  CALMS is the group that assisted King of Glory and St. John, Elk River on their trip to Nicaragua last summer.

SHERIDAN’S STORY is one of the main sources of supplementing grocery items for 37% of children in MN.  They have enough funds to provide 100,000 meals a week through August.  If more funds aren’t raised, they will need to cut that back to only 29,000 meals a week.  If you can donate, please consider donating now as up to $200,000 will be matched.  You can donate online at www.thesheridanstory.org.

 

 

THIS WEEK ON THE LUTHERAN HOUR     August 2, 2020

"Christ's Resurrection Makes Everything New"

Guest Speaker: Dr. Oswald Hoffmann
There is power in doing good works for the sake of others, but that kind of civic righteousness can't compare with the perfect righteousness of God which covers us through faith in Jesus Christ. In a classic radio message, Dr. Oswald Hoffmann shares the power of Christ's resurrection that overcomes death. It's "Archives August".
(Phil. 3:7-11)

 Listen on WCCO AM at 6:05 am, Sunday mornings, or listen anytime at  www.lutheranhour.org.
