THIS LENTEN SEASON - This year our theme for Lent will be "Room At The Banquet" and is based on a devotional published by the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. On Sundays we will explore our calling to help end food insecurity in our region.


On Wednesdays we will "Encounter Those Around The Table" as we hear stories from our own Member Missionaries about the ministry they are engaged in in our community and world. Pick up a paper copy for your household at the church, or access the devotional digitally here.

ALL OF MARCH- We are participating in the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign to collect tuna to stock the shelves at Channel One Regional Food Bank. While your out shopping, please consider purchasing a few cans of tuna and to bring to church Wednesdays and Sundays to help feed our neighbors in need. Our goal this year is to build a "tower of tuna" at least as tall as Pastor Dan!

EVERY YEAR DURING LENT- We choose a food item to collect to feed neighbors in need at Channel One Regional Food Bank. What's this year's item, you ask? Dry pasta! Channel One Regional Food Bank is aiming to collect 225,000 pounds of food this March. For our dry pasta drive, we’ll aim to collect 2,225 boxes of pasta (each box is about 1 lb.). Our yearly Lenten food drive is part of a collective, grassroots effort in Minnesota to stock the shelves of the more than 300 food shelves in the state. called the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. Donations can be placed in the giant “pasta bowl” in the front of the worship space. Questions? Contact the office.
