WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS

ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEEK OF May 13

What’s Happening at Elim!

This Week’s CALENDAR AT A GLANCE
Get Connected Social | This Sunday following 9:30 worship
Are you new to Elim, do you want to call Elim your church? Then we would like the privilege to call you a member. It’s simple to become a member at Elim. Gather with other new people from Elim at our social held after worship for a simple snack and conversation. Please join us in Pastor Dan’s office.

Birdtown Theology Pub | Tuesday, May 22 | 7pm |  Broadway Pizza-Robbinsdale
The topic this month is “giving and forgiving” based on writings of Miroslav Volf, noted theologian and philosopher. Volf’s philosophy is immersed in the topic of human flourishing; what is needed for us to flourish as individuals and a society. Key to this is true giving of ourselves and true forgiving of others. Join us as we compare notes on what it means to “give and forgive.” Questions: contact Harald eriksen at h.eriksen@comcast.net.

Understanding Grief | 1st Wednesdays of each month | 4-5pm | Fireside Room
