Dear Church,
 
The Session met on Tuesday, and in addition to praying for you, they put their heads and hearts (virtually) together to discern what ministry will look like in the month ahead. ALL GROUP MEETINGS AND WORSHIP SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO BE HELD ONLINE IN THE MONTH OF JUNE.

We thank you for your continued care for all of our members, neighbors, friends, and new visitors that keeps our church at work in a new and different way. Office hours will remain from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on Monday through Thursday, and 9:00 am to 12 noon on Fridays. If you have a need at the church, don’t forget to call ahead (507-387-2160) and check in with Lynnette. She’ll help you navigate our new system to keep everyone safe.

A newsletter is in the works for June, so get excited for more mail from FPC to learn about some goings-on and ways to continue to BE the church. Session minutes will come out in the newsletter as well!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope beautiful weather brings you a little R&R as we come into the weekend. Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday for live Facebook worship at 10:00 am and bring your coffee and donuts to ZOOM Coffee Hour to check in on one another!

Peace be yours,
Pastor Lindsay

FLOWER FUND
Church flowers are not being purchased at this time as they normally were. However, our friends at Becky’s Floral are willing to deliver Sunday flowers for us again to some of our beloved that are isolated these days. If you would like to contribute to the flower fund, please make your check out to the church and include “flower fund” in the memo (or in the memo line in your online giving). Bouquet + delivery is $30.
