BIG WATERS DISTRICT: CHANGE THE WORLD DAY

A Day with Bishop Ough

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Dear Big Waters Clergy and Laity,

Our Big Waters District Change the World Day is rapidly approaching! September 17th is the big day when the Coon Rapids church will host this gathering and what a day we have planned! You won’t want to miss it!

We will have inspiring music, preaching and workshops by Bishop Ough, Christa Meland and Ben Ingebretson, and an opportunity for over 200 people to pack meals at Feed My Starving Children! I am especially excited that we will enjoy a special time with Ben Utecht, former NFL Super Bowl Champion and son of our very own Pastor Jeff Utecht (currently serving as interim pastor at our Coon Rapids church) during our afternoon session. I have been in touch with Simon and Schuster who is publishing Ben’s new book. If you would like to get your own copy of the book before September 17th Ben will be available to sign your copy. Books will also be available the day of the event.

Space is filling up (especially for Feed My Starving Children!) so go to http://www.minnesotaumc.org/eventdetail/big-waters-district-day-with-the-bishop-3826400 to register. If you are eating lunch at the church the fee is $15 for lunch and generous snacks throughout the day. I can’t wait to see you there!
