So Much to be Thankful For!
What a wonderful time of fun and fellowship and fund raising we all enjoyed at the 4th Annual Almelund Sampler on October 14!
Special Thanks to all those participating Jason Fredlund debut Master of Ceremonies, LeeAnn Vande Kamp Auctioneer, Pat Remer accompanist extraordinaire, Jon Ekstrom catering, our musicians, those who contributed items for the auction and purchased them, The Worship and Music Commit-tee and Worship Planning Team for organizing the event and Church Council for recruiting auction items and managing the auction. Again, spe-cial thanks to all those who attended the concert, bought a dinner ticket and bid at the auction! Your support is greatly appreciated!
Our numbers before paying the caterer are:
Concert 96 in attendance $1,248
Live Auction, auctioneer $2,835 Silent Auction - $1,066
Dinner 130 served $1,146
At our Sampler Con-cert we enjoyed the debut of "Riding to the New Jerusalem" a new song composed by Randy Amborn. It draws on images from the book of Revelation to paint the picture of arriving in eternal glory. Youll have another opportunity to hear it at the All Saints Day worship service on November 4. Or you could listen to it online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugXofWml2_k. Or simply search on randyambornmusic, either on Youtube, or google it.
There are so many meaningful worship and study opportunities coming up in November! Our Thanksgiving worship is set for Nov. 20 at 7pm! We hope to see everyone at this servicegiving God thanks for all we have! Bonus--it is followed by a time of fellowship, with Pie and Coffee served by our Sarah Circle!
Blessings to you! Pastor Marla Dont forget to have your photo taken for our church directory! See details elsewhere in our newsletter
