Worship services started great

Published 10:20 am Friday, June 8, 2012


Matt Hundley from the Albert Lea Vineyard Church got this year’s worship services at Myre-Big Island State Park off to a great start. The weather, as well as Matt’s message, could not have been better. We had a great turnout for the first service of the year, but there is always room for more. I remember attending these services as a child with my family, and if the weather was nice, it was “standing room only.”

This Sunday, our guest speaker is B.J. Schrank, a lay speaker from Faribault. I believe that this is the fourth year that B.J. has come down, and he has always been well-received. While I cannot tell you what he has in mind for this Sunday, he has told me a little bit about what he plans to do and it sounds great!

If you have been to our services in the past, or are just looking for a break from attending regular church services in the summer, come out and join us. You will not be disappointed.

Services begin at 8 a.m. and last approximately 30 minutes. They are held in the chapel area east of the nature center and main pavilion on Big Island. In case of rain, services are held in the pavilion. Dress casual. A valid park sticker is required to enter the state park. Daily or annual passes can be purchased at the ranger station at the entrance to the park. If there is no one at the ranger station early, they can be purchased on the way out. We hope to see you there !
