REAL Moms..REAL Jesus

Join other moms for the book study/Bible study REAL Moms..REAL Jesus by Jill Savage.  Meets every other Thursday @ 7:30pm.    Have you ever felt alone? Maybe you’ve convinced yourself that “nobody’s ever felt this way before.” Have you longed for a friend who understands? Every mom has experienced those feelings and more.

Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl: Living the Faith after Bible Class Is Over by Lisa TerKeurstA six-session small group Bible study with short DVD that helps you figure out how to trade in going through the motions for the spiritual healthy and vibrant life for which you long. “I really want to know God, personally and intimately.” Do those words resonate with you? Are you tired of just going through the motions of being a Christian? How do you step out of the drudger of religious duty to experience a living, moment-by-moment, deeply intimate relationship with God? Discover how to:

  • Build personal, two-way conversations with God.
  • Study the Bible and experience life change for yourself.
  • Cultivate great authenticity and depth in your relationships.
  • Make disappointments work for you, not against you.
  • Find incredible joy as you live out your faith in everyday circumstances.

Study Guide is $10.  Questions contact Mendy Lange (507-829-5021) or Sherry Smith (320-841-2070).

Building Fund

We have good news regarding our building remodel!  The remaining funds needed to continue on with the project have been pledged, as well as funds to cover the monthly payment on the borrowed amount.  Remodel is scheduled for this winter.  Feel free to continue to contribute to the building fund as this will help reduce the overall borrowed amount.
