Sunday School

Sunday School Kick-off is September 19 at 9am in the Foyer – find out more about classes this Fall and meet the teachers. Children & youth will be dismissed with their class for a brief time of getting to know each other. 

Regular classes will meet every Sunday starting September 26 at 9:15 am.  No classes on 12/26/2021 or 4/17/2022

  • The Bible Study Class – Join us this fall as we study together in the book of Genesis. Genesis means “origin”, “beginning,” and the book of Genesis is about beginnings. In it, God lays the groundwork for the rest of scripture, His revelation of Himself to man. The New Testament quotes Genesis more than any other Old Testament book except Psalms and Isaiah. What a great time to begin spending time together in God’s word. Taught by Elizabeth Roemer & Trevor Asher – Room #106
  • The Thematic Class will be a rotating class throughout the year covering various themes that are instrumental in our discipleship. These could include a biblical theme or a theme such as marriage, answering hard questions from unbelievers, parenting, etc…All of these classes will explore the Bible’s perspective on the selected theme and how we can more faithfully follow Christ. The first class will look at the biblical theme of Kingdom and be led by Jarryd Loyd. – Room #107
  • Coffee Connection: Casual conversation relating the Bible to lessons as current as the week’s news.  Facilitated by Greg & Terri Mason – Room #218

Weekly Prayer Gathering

Spend time in prayer for our church family, for others, and our nation. All are welcome! Join in prayer with others weekly on Wednesdays at 7pm, currently meeting via Zoom video.

Contact Jan Miller (320.444.1322 ) for Zoom link information.

Small Groups Now Forming

Our hope is that we will build authentic, intentional relationships within the congregation. To begin our small groups we will work through a book study, Gentle and Lowly, by Dane C. Ortlund, that gives us a closer look at the heart of who Jesus our Savior is. There is an accompanying study guide and short video (7-10 minutes) that will aid if someone is not able to read the book’s content.

Find out more about small group options & sign up in the church foyer.

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy  of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him:  bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;  giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.”
