October Community Dinner by Marino’s Deli

Our partnerships with local businesses and organizations allow us to host a monthly FREE community dinner, open to all. Our October dinner is Saturday October 28 from 5:30-6:30.

We are incredibly grateful to announce that our October community dinner will be prepared by local restaurant Marino’s Deli!

In addition, volunteers from Mobile Menders will be available before and during our Community Dinner to patch, mend, replace zippers and refurbish worn clothing for folks with the need.

Family Faith on Sept 24 & Oct 1: Prayer Book Making

On September 24 & October 1, during our regular education time, we’ll have the opportunity to come together as one “family” made up of many families (parents and kids, grandparents and great-aunts and grandsons, single folks, couples, and every other shade of family) to explore our faith together.  Faith lived out can look very different from family to family; let’s explore that beautiful diversity of Christian life!

For the next two Sundays, we’ll be making prayer books together! Jennifer Schultz will teach us how to pull our own paper sheets and assemble them into books, while Pastor Emmy will teach about writing prayers and using fancy handwritten fonts.

Join us on Sunday, 11:15am-noon!

Beautiful Bodies: LGBTQ Worship on September 24

Beautiful Bodies is our third worship service grounded in the experiences of the LGBTQ community and led by its members from throughout the Twin Cities.

As lesbian, gay, bisexual/pansexual, trans and gender nonconforming, intersex, asexual, and queer Christians, we have often become isolated from our own bodies. How can we learn to reconnect with our physical selves and with our word-in-flesh God?

Worship will open with band-led music. Our preacher will be Austen Hartke, vlogger of the Trans and Christian series on YouTube . There will be open time for prayer and meditation, followed by sharing in communion and fellowship time after worship.

All those who affirm and celebrate the lives of queer and trans Christians are welcome to join us.
