WELCOME Pastor Dana and Lynda to the Norman Davenport Parish Family! We are blessed to have you with  us!

February Family Sunday

Family Sunday is February 1 at Davenport at 9:45. Guest speaker will be Mrs. North Dakota International 2015, Erin Bertel. You may have seen the article in the December 28 Fargo Forum regarding her providing hope to the homeless through donations of socks.

The Sunday School will also be sponsoring a Sock Drive to benefit the homeless. The best kind of socks to donate are men's tube socks because they don't have a heel so anyone of any age can wear them. There will be a basket set up at each church for your donations.

Just a reminder that Family Sunday's are not just for families with kids in Sunday School Family Sunday's are for EVERYONE in our congregations. All are welcome! Come hear Erin's story. Hope to see you there!!
