Your child will learn about characters that are seldom found in Sunday school time and find out how God worked through people we would never expect! God is full of surprises and so is our family tree! Come shake it with us and see what we can find out! Children come to worship  at 9:00 am with their parents and are 
escorted to Sunday School following the

Flu Shot Clinic
Sunday, September 25th

The Minnesota Visiting Nurse Association (MVNA) is once again sponsoring a flu vaccination clinic here at RUMC.  It will be held on Sunday, September 25th, from 9:45 am - 12:15 pm in the middle office.  Only the quadrivalent flu shot will be available this year for participants ages 3 years and older.  This is an inactivated (dead flu virus) vaccine that protects against four flu strains (two A strains and two B strains).   The CDC is not recommending Flu Mist for the 2016/2017 season. This year MVNA can bill any insurance company for the vaccination if the participant has their health insurance member ID card (with Group Number) and photo ID.  It is the participant's responsibility to confirm the flu vaccination is a covered benefit. If you do not have insurance, you will need to pay $36.00 in cash or check prior to receiving your vaccination. The MVNA uses latex-free bandages.
