No Sunday School or Worship Services at Pulaski Mennonite Church today with the re-modeling ‘push’ underway. Here are 3 ideas:
>Worship with the Fairview Church of the Brethren . Worship begins at 10:30 AM with children invited to Children’s Church at 11:00. The congregation will serve you lunch after worship as they’d love to meet folks from PMC. Go West on Highway 2 from Bloomfield for about 15 miles, on west of the Moulton Turnoff, then turn right/north on T61 toward Unionville, IA. From Unionville, the church is 2 ½ miles south.
>Worship in another community church . . . and while there, pay attention to ‘what it feels like’ as a visitor and observe the good ways you are greeted and the ways you might feel more at home. Your observations are very helpful here in our church home.
>Take a day off for visiting, or, hosting another family at your home for a picnic, swimming, fishing etc. This is the day the LORD has made.
Sunday July 28: 10:30 Worship in Keosauqua at Good Samaritan Shelter House, Picnic Basket Lunch at 11:15 then canoeing at 12:00. Sign-up to reserve a canoe . . . rentals are $42.80 per canoe . . . into the river east of the north end of the Des Moines River bridge. For lunch at 11:15, bring table service & sandwiches and a potluck dish to share on the common table. Drink provided.
