On Sunday, Sept. 8, morning coffee was served by Linda Benson, Shelly and Melissa Nygaard and Tamra Berg to honor the Sunday School Teachers. The money collected was given to the Sunday School.               

The annual singspiration was held on Sept. 15 at 7pm. Dorothy Hjermstad opened the program with a warm welcome to everyone. Devotions were given by Linda Benson, reading from Mark 6:30-32. Linda addressed “Hurry Sickness” and how we all have it. We need to remember that Jesus took time for solitude and so should we. Dave Davidson, John, Matthew, Joel and Luke Helland started the program with two vocal selections. The Hellands then sang as a quartet. A group from Our Saviors in Cannon Falls sang. The group included Tim Banks, Shayla and Chelsey Anfinson and Becky Bakken. And, playing piano was Pam Collins and on guitar was Bryan Skillestad. Pastor Gideon sang and played “Let Me Sing” on the piano. Jane Froehlich shared a vocal solo, followed by a vocal solo by Terra Haugen.
