God calls us beyond our church into the Twin Cities community and beyond...
Meals on Wheels. Deliver meals every third Wednesday to meals-on-wheels recipients in our neighborhood.
Holy Hammers. We are part of a coalition of 14 churches that builds homes with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. Watch for sign-ups at our church in the early spring for the summer build.
Denominational Partnerships. As members of the Presbytery of the Twin Cities, the Synod of the Lakes and Prairies, and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) we support mission outreach in our community, our region, and around the world. We help feed the hungry, house the homeless, encourage the hopeless, aid disaster victims, foster new churches, educate the young, train ministers and missionaries and share God’s love with all God’s children. We receive special offerings such as One Great Hour of Sharing, Peacemaking, Christmas Joy, and Pentecost. Buy a copy of the Mission yearbook in January, learn about our world-wide mission outreach and pray with and for our many faithful mission workers.
