Beginning Thursday, September 17, the Bonners Ferry United Methodist Church is hosting
“Easy Worship,” a new, relaxed but sincere worship service in its Fellowship Hall. This service is meant to fulfill the needs of those people who cannot make it to church on Sunday mornings — for whatever reason.

This special evening service is an alternative time for worship that may prove to be more convenient for those in our community whose Sundays are taken up with other priorities and/or obligations. It is not meant to replace regular Sunday worship at your own church. We hope that those who want to worship with us will take advantage of this opportunity— be it a onetime event or more often than not. All are welcome!

Dress is casual; come as you are. A light potluck supper is planned for 6:00pm. Services begin at 6:30pm and will last no longer than an hour. Come! For more information, For contact information, our Bonners Ferry United Methodist
Church phone number is 208-267-2343.
