Midweek Meditation 18

Well, here we are, that kind of Bob Hope moment (“Thanks for the Memories”) or Carol Burnett closing (“I’m so glad we had this time together”). Two years of Interim Ministry time has passed and it was insightful for me and memorable.

Thank you, congregation of Maple Grove United for your support, your honest feedback, your sharing in new ventures in ministry, your care and love. There is a depth of faith and dedication in this congregation that will enable you to endure and carry on in ministry for some years yet.

COVID-19 Questionaire

If you’re planning to Attend September 30 Worship in person

Here’s a link to a COVID-19 survey that our congregation can complete online before coming to the service on August 30th.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HLVNTNY

This link is to be included with this week’s email as well as here on the church website, asking you to fill it out, if you can, before you come to the service.  This will cut down on traffic at the door.  

We will also have paper copies available if you do not fill yours out online.

Midweek Meditation – August 19

Return to the words that calm
over and over,

Dear Friends,
We hope you are keeping healthy and safe. As we continue to live this new normal, we remain committed to serving all those who need us.

Although we are serving and helping more people during this time, we are also feeling very blessed by the generous community that has surrounded KSM during this time of uncertainty.

Yezedi Woman Update

Recently the Outreach Committee presented you with an appeal to help a second Yezedi girl reunite with her mother. Some new information has come to light which we would like to share with you. The girl has made it to a refugee camp in Iraq, after being purchased out of sex “slavery” by her family. This is not an unusual situation. Girls are regularly put up for sale by human traffickers at a cost of about 10k to 20k USD depending on their health or “desirability” The young girl’s mother is desperate to go to the refugee camp to reunite with her daughter and help her get the medical and dental assistance she needs.
