Person Needed for Snow Removal at BLC

Soon the snowflakes will be flying and covering the sidewalks at BLC. We are in need of a person who is willing to clear the walks each time is snows. A snow blower is available onsite. This is a paid position; so if you are interested, please contact Lyle Strehler at 952-888-2475 or lstrehler@bllh.org. Thank you.

Be Part of the New Care Team

When our church members and families are in crisis or in need of help, they often reach out to our pastors for support from their church family. They may ask for rides to the doctor or church, babysitting while a parent is at an appointment, meals, financial support – the requests are varied. If you would like to be on the team that helps fellow church members, please contact the BLC church office at 952-888-2475.

Donate a Refrigerator for LH Communion Supplies

The new sanctuary area at Living Hope does not have a refrigerator for storing the bottles and trays of wine and grape juice used for communion. If you have a used refrigerator to donate to Living Hope, please contact Lyle Strehler at 952-888-2475 or lstrehler@bllh.org.

Fall Cleaning? Donate Items to Church!

If you are purging while cleaning this spring and find yarn and other crafting items you would like to donate, please give them to our Joyful Hands crafting group. They make prayer shawls, mittens, hats, greeting cards, and more items that are donated to help others. Leave your donations in the church office labeled for Joyful Hands. Also, save your new or gently used treasures for the annual Church Garage Sale! Drop off dates will be after VBS in June 2019. Exact dates and times will be announced.
