UNITE 2015

Coming to you the 1st Three Weekends in May


Evergreen Church is one church with many locations in the Twin Cities (Evergreen-Bloomington, Evergreen-New Hope, Evergreen-Lakeville, The Rock-S. Minneapolis & The Urban Refuge-S Minneapolis.)

THIS YEAR’S TOPIC: "EXILES - Great Hope in Daunting Times”

We are living in unprecedented times. For the first time in American history, Christians are the marginalized minority. Biblical values are no longer the majority view. But it’s gone further. True believers are being openly ridiculed, scorned, and resented. Our nation once was based on Biblical principles, but now those same beliefs are treated with disdain. America is transitioning to an anti-Christian nation. We are beginning to experience what true Christians have always lived through—being the ostracized minority in a hostile culture. We are now exiles and aliens in our own nation. Yet, true believers in the past lived with great hope in daunting times. And so can we. Please join us for three captivating weekends at your location. This year, we are bringing UNITE to you by bringing in speaking pastors from our other locations.
