CONNECT

Common Interest


Common Interest Groups

Connect with others who share a similar interest, stage of life, or desire for growth.


2nd Halfers

For adults in their second half of life (50+) to connect with each other through social events,

grow in faith with educational opportunities specific for second-half life dynamics, and serve

others in our generation and those following. Get on our email list by contacting Jeff and Jolene.


Hearts for Adoption

Finding community among women with adoptive children, or those in the process of adopting, can be important and helpful. Moms in this group come together to support, encourage, and pray for each other along the journey of building our families through adoption.

Contact: Caeli or (952) 201-7707.

God, Science, and Nature

This group explores the relationships between God, science, and nature through dialogue and short presentations. Contact: Dennis


Prayer Shawl Ministry

If you enjoy knitting or crochet, join us as we prayerfully craft these symbols of comfort and blessing. Shawls are prayed over, then given to those in need of a tangible expression of God’s love and care during seasons of loss, transition or celebration. Help is available for beginners.

Patterns are provided; bring three skeins of Lion Brand Homespun yarn and size 11 or 13 knitting needles; or four skeins yarn and size M or N crochet hook. This group meets between services on the second Sunday once per quarter. Contact: Eileen

Writers Group

Writing can feel like such a solitary venture. Meeting with other writers is a way to share encouragement, ideas and experiences. Through discussion, prayer and occasional guest speakers, we’ll learn and talk about the writing craft and brainstorm ideas. Writers of all levels of experience are welcome. Meeting is held offsite. Contact: Jennifer

Second and fourth Wed of each month, 7-9pm


Young Adults

Once you exit high school, you find there's so much change to life as you once knew. Adults 18 to 30-something who are looking for opportunities to connect should get on the email list. From there, we'll send you info about serving and socializing events. Also, meet us between services at the Open House on the second Sunday of the month. Contact: Sonia | ext 1904
