During this session, we will talk about "Cross-Cultural Communication." How do I engage those that are different than me? How can we learn to understand each other better? Questions?

Sonshine Kidz 2018 is Starting!

Join Us! It's Not Just for Kids!

Sundays, June 10-August 12 (except 6/17 & 7/8), 5:00 – 7:00 PM, Southgate Apartments. This will be our 3rd year of getting outside of the church walls to love our community. It's a lot of fun! Consider coming as a family with your kids. What a great way to teach and model our call to "love our neighbor" than doing it together as a family. But it's not just for kids. The smell of burgers on the grill and the energy of the music draws out a lot of adults. People that are longing for friendship, or someone to talk to. When we as a church show up in large numbers, it sends a very powerful message about the Jesus we love. Come join us for one week or every week! In addition to simply joining us on Sundays, we are also in need of some servants to make things happen. Questions or want to serve? Contact Pastor Tim Weber, 952-240-0149.

Wednesdays, June 6-August 22 (except 7/4 & 25), Room TBD, 7:00-9:00 PM. Ladies, are you ready to experience the mercy, joy, peace and fullness that only comes through Christ?

Freedom in Christ can be a way of life, as you take in these life-altering truths and become equipped with tools for daily living. Register HERE by May 27. Cost is $5 which covers the cost of companion workbook. Questions? Contact Jessica Coggins, 952-250-8160.

Mission Week Training

This summer we will be doing a mission trip to our city and like any short-term mission trip there is training to be done to prepare for it. Please plan to attend if any of the following are true for you:

  2. You want to be equipped to share the Gospel
  3. It’s time to step outside of your comfort zone
  4. You have a desire to be used by the Lord
  5. You will be participating in the summer mission trip

The method we will be training with is easy to lean and family friendly. After the training, we'll go out in teams and practice. Bring some snacks for the family to eat while you are out or bring money to pick up lunch. Not only will you leave being more confident in sharing your faith, but the Lord just might use you in someone else’s life. Questions? Contact Pastor Rob Busse.
