At United Parish we are creating a ministry around the growing issue of sex trafficking of children in Pope County. The ministry will focus on providing internet safety classes to parents, and building healthy and loving relationships through fellowship activities at Heartland Girls' Ranch.
Plans for constructing a playground on church grounds have begun. This has been made possible through a generous memorial, fundraisers led by families, and the commitment by the congregation to welcome children and families in the Glenwood community. We hope to install the playground in 2018!
Through fundraisers throughout the year, our women's group serves those in need in our community, greater Minnesota, and the world.
