- KYNT Radio Broadcast The signup folder is located on the table in the Church Lounge.    November 23 and 30 is available.  If you want a certain date, reserve it now.  The cost to sponsor a Sunday broadcast is $45.00.


- Turkey Supper -  One of our important outreach ministries is our annual Turkey Supper held in

February.  The community looks forward to this event and it brings in people who might not otherwise come through our doors.  In addition to being a community event, the proceeds are donated to causes such as United Methodist Pastor Ron Olson & family from Bowman, ND who were injured in a car accident in December 2013 leaving their daughter paralyzed.  Our previous coordinators have decided to help with other activities so we are in need of someone(s) to coordinate this ministry.  This is a great opportunity for two friends or a couple who have been thinking about how they might be in service together.  Does coordinating the Turkey Supper sound like something you would be interested in?  Want to learn more?  Please contact Jeff May, Chairman of the Finance Committee.
