King of Grace Church Service Video Viewing Update- Volunteers Needed!
Thank you to all of our video volunteers! Over the Christmas season, KOG had 445 views of our different services. If our Minnesota weather is saying “don’t travel” and you just can’t make it for the fellowship of actual church attendance, you can still participate in hearing God’s Word from KOG. Watch the live stream of the 8:15 AM Sunday service from our website kingofgracelutheran.com on a computer or on your smartphone. If you want to view a service after the live stream time, past services are available on our website and YouTube. If you would like to volunteer to be part of our video team, please contact Gerry Reason. Training will be provided.

Church council is looking for additional male alternates from KOG that may be able to attend, maybe even just for a day, to help out our current delegates who might not be able to attend the entire convention.
