Brothers & Sisters
We have met a number of times during the time of quarantine both in person and on line. We have looked at the MN Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and Church Mutual recommendations and spoken with the pastors and leaders of other CM&A organizations. After much prayer and discussion the governing board has decided the following concerning our opening for church services during the Covid-19 pandemic:
• We will be open for services starting on May 31, 2020.
• The board is requiring parishioners to wear masks until the board lifts this requirement. Masks are available as needed.
• People must sit 6 feet apart from other parishioners not in their family group.
• The nursery space is available for parents to take children to with the understanding that families are to bring toys for their children and to bring them home again after the service.
• Hand sanitizer is available for use and we encourage the use of it as often as recommended by the MN Dept. of Health.
• Children’s church and Sunday School are not going to meet until we feel it is safe to do so.
• Parishioners that are sick are kindly asked to stay at home.
• Continue with virtual/online participation if you are at high risk of severe illness do to Covid 19.
We encourage you to communicate questions, concerns, and needs to the board members.
We invite you to go to
for a word from C&MA President, John Stumbo: "As a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family, we continue to rest in His great and precious promises as we join hands and hearts to complete the unfinished work He has invited us into."
C&MA Mission Statement:
We desire to know Jesus Christ as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King and to complete His Great Commission.

SERMON MESSAGES & VIDEOS
August 2, 2020:
Hi Everyone, here's the link to this Sunday's message from 1 John 1:8-10. I think it's a message that's relevant to all of us today. I look forward to seeing all of you at the Duluth Alliance Church on Sunday. Thanks too to everyone who's been praying for our grandson, Mikai. He FaceTimed us today and he looks great. He's had some really pain-filled days since the surgery, but he was feeling pretty good overall today. Please continue to pray for his complete recovery from this major back surgery. By the way, he grew 2" because of the surgery. God bless, and I hope to see those of you who can come on Sunday (Judy can't come because we have a family coming in to Whitetail Lodge from Friday-Monday). Pastor Pat & Judy

This Sunday, Bob H. will be with us to share the Ministry of the Word. The scripture he will be covering is 1 Corinthians 1:1-9. Bob is asking us to reflect on how our perspective might change when we think of who Jesus is and what he has done for us...
Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Everyone, I've attached the link to this week's message. I know some of you are still not able to attend in person, so hope this helps. I'm continuing my study in 1 John and I think this week's message has a LOT to do with what we're seeing in our nation right now as light battles darkness, good battles evil. I've attached a great quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that relates to the message.
Judy and I also have a prayer request for each of you. Our grandson, Mikai, is going in for a major back surgery on July 24 beginning at around 7:oo am. This is a 6-7 hour surgery. Surgeons will be removing one of his vertebra and replacing it with a "hinge." Mikai has already had about 20 back surgeries, but this is one where the spinal cord will be in VERY close proximity to what the surgeons will be doing. Pray that the surgery is a complete success and that there won't be any paralysis. Thanks for caring and praying, God bless, Pastor Pat & Judy

Christ our Savior
Jesus‘ death on a cross was the fulfillment of Old Testament law, which required blood atonement for sin. By His death and resurrection, we are redeemed from eternal separation from God, justified, made righteous, and accepted in His Name. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved.
Christ our Sanctifier
1 Corinthians 1:30
The laver symbol represents the daily cleansing from sin by the power of the Holy Spirit. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness (2 Peter 1:3).
Christ our Healer
This symbol represents a pitcher containing oil to anoint the sick for healing that comes through obedience to God’s Word. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up (James 5:15).
Christ our Coming King
The crown represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings. His coming will be a visible, personal appearance.You will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven (Mark 14:62).
