Single Parent Oil Change

Saturday, July 28, 10:00 AM-2:00 PM, Evergreen-Bloomington, Parking Lot. This summer's oil change will occur during MTOC. If you’re a single parent, you can park your car, serve for the day and come back to a fresh oil change. If you know a single parent that could use some help, this is a great way to introduce them to Evergreen. Contact Suzanne, 612-644-0448 (after 5pm) by Thursday, July 26 with the year, make and model of your vehicle.

Service Projects

Mission to Our City

Look around. Listen and report! We need ideas for service projects for MTOC. Any idea is worth submitting. We’ll fit in whatever we can with available work teams. Contact Pastor Mike Olmstead, 612-750-7989.

Talk Less, Say More


Everyone wants to be heard, right? But how we go about it might hinder our effectiveness. The Bible gives us a model to follow which is contrary to our natural inclinations and the culture. But here’s the important thing – it works! Join us July 6, 8 through July 27, 29 for practical teaching we can all use in becoming more like Christ in how we communicate with others.

Mission To Our City: July 25-29

Registration is Officially Open!

For the first time in our 30-year history, all five of our church locations are hosting a local mission trip and online registration is officially open.

This will be an incredible uniting time for our church. You’ve just got to be there! You can register on our app or online HERE.

Multi-location News

30th Anniversary Celebration CANCELLED

Given the recent investigation results and all of the resulting emotions being felt throughout our multi-location church family, we have decided this August would not be the proper time for an anniversary celebration, so we have decided to cancel the previously planned August 19th event. Ecclesiastes 3:4 says, "There is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance”. Let’s take this time to weep and mourn with those in need, knowing that the Lord will give us another time to celebrate in the future.

The staff is accredited by the Department of Justice and meets with immigrants, helping them understand their options and, if able, providing low-cost immigration legal services.
