Worship services

Worship services are every Sunday at 10:30 a.m and run for about 60 minutes.   
During the school year, there is education for all ages at 9:30 a.m.
During the summer months, there is Bible study for adults only at 9:30 a.m.

Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month, in addition to other select seasonal worship services.  All are invited to come forward, including members and guests.  We use gluten-free bread and grape juice, rather than wine. 


Upcoming worship

SUNDAY, JUNE 2

We will celebrate the sacrament of Communion.  Madeline Hart-Andersen will preach on 2 Kings 5:1-14 and the difficulty of doing simple tasks. Steve Swanson shares in worship on piano.

Madeline Hart-Andersen is a Candidate under care of the Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area. She graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in May with her M.Div. and is spending the summer doing Clinical Pastoral Education (Chaplain-Intern) at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. For the summer, she is living with her parents and grandmother, and her dog, Phin. She loves the outdoors, knitting, and sewing, and is very glad to be back in Minnesota. Madeline is grateful for the opportunity to be in worship with you this morning!

SUNDAY, JULY 14

Rev. Ashley Bair will preach from the book of Amos. Amos was a shepherd and a fig tree farmer who lived on the border of Israel and Judah. While he didn’t come from a line of prophets, Amos felt called to prophesy. At the time, there was a feeling of peace and prosperity, but only for those who reaped the benefits of idol worship. Amos traveled to a temple in Israel to remind people of God’s Word and speak out on behalf of those who had been neglected. The writings of Amos offer an important reminder of who we are as people of God and that no matter our circumstances, we have the ability and power to speak out for ourselves and our people.

Liisa Keränen plays organ.

SUNDAY, JULY 21

This Sunday, Rev. Ashley Bair continues preaching from the book of Amos with Liisa Keränen sharing on organ.

SUNDAY, JULY 28

Do you ever wonder how and why we should pray?  The disciples once asked Jesus how they should pray, and Jesus provided not only a sample prayer (what we call the Lord’s Prayer) but also a fascinating response about prayer and persistence and a trust that God will give us good gifts.  Rev. Colby will preach on Luke 11:1-13 and guitarist Jim Falbo shares in worship.
