Come together with women from across the country and all walks of life for ABUNDANCE, a special two-day event to explore the sufficiency and generosity of Christ. Authors and teachers Lisa Harper, Angela Thomas-Pharr, Kelly Minter, Jefferson Bethke and TC Stallings along with Christian recording artists Christy Nockels and Natalie Grant, will explore and illustrate how embracing God's abundance transforms every area of our daily lives.
Because at ABUNDANCE, we believe that, in Him, little is much, less is more, hardship is blessing, hurt is healed, and wrong is made right. We believe His love multiplies and His mercy is boundless. We know His grace is gratuitous and His forgiveness is excessive. We trust His kindness is generous and His faithfulness overflows. And we remember, in Him our lives can be abundant.
Join us Friday & Saturday, September 29 & 30 at Grace Church in Eden Prairie. In faith, we bought 25 tickets at the price of $60. The first 25 women who sign up and pay will get that rate. If those 25 tickets sell, and we need to purchase more, the cost will then be $70.

For centuries, their nation had been in exile. For a generation, they had been without access to their ancestral city. For six days, surrounded by enemies, Israel stood alone…and changed history. This spring marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War and a CBN documentary film commemorates this historical battle with the new movie, “IN OUR HANDS: The Battle for Jerusalem.” On Tuesday, May 23, for a special one-night showing, you can experience the story of Israel's extraordinary battle for survival fifty years ago. In May of 1967, Arab nations joined together with a stated goal to wipe Israel off the map. Less than 20 years after reforming as a nation, Israel was on the verge of extinction. Yet six days in early June 1967 changed history forever. Find movie locations/times at www.inourhands1967.com.

Blood is essential for life: it carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, fights infections, and helps heal wounds. And everyone has this self-generating resource that can be generously given to others—when and where it is needed most.
- Accidents happen 24/7 that put our friends, family, and neighbors in danger
- Blood transfusions save the lives of cardiac patients during surgery
- Premature infants come into the world often needing blood to survive
You or someone you know will need blood.
If not personally in need, at some point we will all know a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker who needs a blood transfusion. In fact, 1 out of 3 people will need blood in their lifetime. From natural disasters to unforeseen catastrophes, emergency hospital procedures to life-long battles with chronic diseases such as sickle cell, the demand for blood is constant. The supply is not. And since there is no substitute, only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives.
Memorial Blood Center's bus will be here on Wednesday, April 26 in the afternoon. Please consider giving blood—you can save a life! Sign up at the Care Kiosk in the Foyer at Church or contact Parish Nurse Judy Petersen by email.
You're invited to be part of this global, one-day simulcast that focuses on the power of prayer and learning to study God's Word for yourself. Worship times will be lead by Anthony Edwards.
