Blood Drive

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 3 in the afternoon. Please consider giving blood—you can save a life! Sign up at the Care Kiosk or Info Desk in the Foyer at Church or contact Parish Nurse Judy Petersen by email.

Second Harvest Food Giveaway

Second Harvest March 2019 web.jpg

Second Harvest is our food distribution ministry that we host on the fourth Friday of every month from January to October.

Hunger is a problem all around the world, even here in Minnesota. Second Harvest is the Upper Midwest's largest hunger relief organization and guides the distribution of donated food to local food shelves, soup kitchens, and shelters.

As a community of believers, we have been blessed with the opportunity to reach out to others and share freely the love that has been given to us. The simple gifts of our time and our hands help spread that love to people who are experiencing hardship and strife, and send a message of hope in difficult times.

On the fourth Friday of the month (January-October), we help distribute donated food from Second Harvest to people in our community who need it most. Join us once a month to help ease the pain of hunger in our community.

Women's Winter Bible Studies

We’re gearing up for a new study on 1 Peter. Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.

Join us Wednesdays at 9:30 AM or 6:30 PM beginning January 23. Sign up in the Foyer on Sundays. Book Cost: $15.

NEW YEAR = NEW STUDY FOR YOUNG ADULTS
Would you like to start the new year off on the right foot? How about joining us for our next study—the Minor Prophets! These are the twelve prophets whose writings are often overlooked, but not because they are not impactful. We will look at their historical contexts in order to gain better insight into their writings. Now is a great time to jump in! Join us in Room 109 on Sundays or Thursdays from 6:00–7:00 PM. If you have questions, email Pastor Ben.

Acts Bible Study

ACTS: THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Jesus unleashes the power of the Holy Spirit upon His people. The Book of Acts records this historical impact in the lives of people, cities and continents and lays the foundation of God’s work in our present day. In this study, you will meet the key personalities of the book and visit the locations with multimedia presentations where it all happened. Learn what the Holy Spirit’s pattern has been and still is for our day in exalting Jesus Christ and building His Church. The Spirit who was at work then is still at work today! He wants to use you in this generation.

Plan to attend on Wednesdays from January 9–March 6, from 6:30-8 PM. Bring a Bible, notebook, and pen. Childcare provided through AWANA. Sign up at the Info Desk or by email.
