Kyle Petersen - World Race Stories


Sunday, July 30, 12:00-1:00 PM, Great Room. The World Race is a stretching journey to serve “the least of these” while among real and raw community. This unique mission trip is a challenging adventure for young adults to abandon worldly possessions and a traditional lifestyle in exchange for an understanding that it's not about you; it's about the Kingdom. Come hear Kyle share on his experiences, what God taught him through this amazing opportunity, and what God has in store for his future because of this step of obedience. Special snacks will be provided. All ages are welcome.

Men’s Purity Group

Thursdays, June 29, July 13, 20, and 27, 6:30-7:30 AM, Fireside Room. Men, we need to stand together to overcome in this area. We are under attack and need each other to stand strong. The last two meetings have been great and the next 4 are for all of you. It’s a chance to walk together with other men and to overcome. Some of the comments so far: "If I was not coming to this I know I would have done something I shouldn't.", "I knew that I would be held accountable when we met, so God helped me not act out." Please join us for a non-judgmental time to focus on getting and staying pure together. Questions? Contact Mike Higgins at 612-991-9151 or

These three weeks will stir up your faith, hope and love! 


This year we are spotlighting "Core Value 1: Grace & Love" with a message series entitled, The Burning Heart of God. At the very core of God is a burning, passionate, inexhaustible love--a love so great that God put his precious Son in our place – bearing the wrath and punishment for our sin. Why? For God so loved the world!
