  • Wreath Sale

    Christmas wreaths are available for purchase once again from the Confirmation Youth through November 11.

    The wreaths are 24 inches and the cost is $20 each. The Gethsemane Youth will profit $10 per wreath. They will be delivered on November 29 to the Church around 10:30 am. 

    The wreath sale profits will be divided in half to purchase gifts for Range Transitional Housing Friends (a community service project) and the Youth Fund. 

    Contact a Confirmation Youth, the Church office, or Cindy Lustig to order a wreath if you are not contacted. Cindy can be reached at 218-290-3272 and email

  • Gifts for Range Transitional Housing Friends

    We will have the Range Transitional Housing listings ready at the church on November 7. The change from family listings to individual listings worked so well last year (Thank You, Sheila Vandervort), that we will do it that way again this year.

    Call the church office or pick up a tag at worship starting on November 8. Gifts need to be back at church for distribution by December 14. Please wrap and label each gift with the family number and individual identifying information.

    Our church family is so generous and follows God’s work through service so well! We are the only sponsoring group that has ALWAYS fulfilled our gift wish lists!

    Thank you, Bless you, Stay Well!
