Thank you Sarah P. for heading up this amazing group of women who demonstrate such hospitality hosting our meals at church (Celebration Sunday for example)! This takes a LOT of work and we are so grateful to these women who serve.

After taking the Spiritual Gifts survey, maybe you discovered you have the gift of helps or hospitality. This is a great area in which you could serve our church - and we need you! If you feel God prompting you to help in this area, please contact Sarah P.


Here are a few words from Kami P., our Meals Ministry coordinator:

Love to cook? Love to help others in need? If so, we need you! The Meals Ministry is looking to add members to its team of meal providers. When a need (birth, surgery, death of a loved one, etc...) arises a notification goes out to our team and if you are able to help out, great!! If that date doesn't work, there will always be others that arise throughout the year. Jump in whenever it works for you to serve! It may be once a year or 10 times a year, it is your choice. We simply encourage you to consider joining this team as a way to serve in our church and community!! It is truly heartwarming to deliver a meal to someone who needs it and see their smile of appreciation!! If you would like to join this team or would like more information about this ministry, please contact Kami P.


Movie Outing…

Please join us for an evening at the movies!
The Date: Saturday, September 30, 2017
The Plan: Meet at Barb Schendel’s House at 3:30 p.m. to split into carpools. The movie is in Maple Grove and starts at 4:30. That will give us time to purchase tickets and concessions. After the movie, we’ll stop for appetizers and chat!
Please RSVP by texting or calling Gwen Paulson at 612-202-3040, or by e-mail at
