Associate Pastor Eric Nygren

We are so pleased to announce a strong "yes!" vote from our congregation to hire Pastor Eric Nygren as our Associate Pastor. We called Pastor Eric on the phone to offer him the job and he responded by saying, "absolutely yes!"

Please pray for the Nygren family as they now make plans to move up from Iowa. Pray for the sale of their home, the transition to new schools and a new community, and that Pastor Eric will get up to speed quickly in his new adult discipleship role here. They will likely officially start here the first part of August.

Learn more about him at https://www.thenygrens.com/.

All-Church Picnic

The all-church picnic is on Sunday, July 15, starting at 4:00 p.m. We’ll enjoy swimming at the Oak Hills College beach and outdoor games in the large grassy field. Bring some meat to grill and a side to share. We’ll provide the grills and ice-cream for desert.

We are also having a brief baptism service by the lake. In preparation for the Baptism Service, a special Sunday School class on the meaning of baptism is being held July 8 in the Fireside Room and will be repeated the following Sunday, July 15. This class is for all who are considering baptism and for all who have questions on the subject. Attendance at the class is open to all ages and it does not obligate anyone to be baptized.

If you have questions or want more information, contact Micah Carpenter at mcarpenter@efcbemidji.org or call the church office at 218-751-8834.
