Trunk or Treat
October 28 | 3:00-5:00 pm
It’s back! Don’t miss our 6th annual Trunk or Treat event. Instead of going door-to-door more than 1,000 people have stop by and go trunk-to-trunk in our family-friendly parking lot. The event includes free candy, inflatables, interactive games, mini-donuts and more!
To donate candy, look for the red containers by the front desk at church beginning October 1.
If you would like to host a trunk, register online by October 27.
To be part of our event staff, contact Sara Galligan at email@example.com.
Middle School Fall Retreat
BRANDED | November 3-5
Camp JIM | cost: $99
Branding - it's everywhere. You can't turn on the TV or drive down the street without seeing hundreds of ads and billboards. Companies spend millions of dollars trying to shape how YOU see THEM, developing their brand. But what about the Church? What are WE known for? This retreat focuses on what we are known for and will do so by pushing us through a bunch of team building initiatives throughout the weekend. Come ready to get dirty, have fun, grown and spend time together!

Fall Fling | November 3-5

Pulse Movement Training
November 18 | 11:00 am-1:00 pm | Wayzata Free
Evangelism is hard. Knowing this, how do we move forward? We look at common excuses for evangelism, how we can take courage from heroes from Scripture, and why we can be confident that God will move every time we share the Gospel. We break down the three basic steps in the cycle of evangelism: Pray, Care, and Share. We see how to listen, learn, love, and lead others to Jesus through our story, four simple points, and a Gospel illustration. We also look at the importance of continuing this cycle into discipleship. At the end of the training, we challenge all our participants to join in The Movement Challenge. What is it? Wait and see!
