Small Group Ministry
What is Small Group…
Small groups are the primary means of making a large church seem small. The staff and leadership believes it is important for you to consider joining a small group. Sunday services are great for corporate worship and teaching, but life change happens in small groups. A small group becomes a strong circle of friends that can pray with you, laugh with you, cry with you, grow with you, and hold you accountable to live a life of full devotion to Jesus Christ through outreach and service to others.
Group size varies-usually 6 to 12 people. There can be groups for men, women, singles, married, etc. Groups are not necessarily based on what their members have in common but Whom they have in common—that is Jesus Himself. Groups may meet regularly weekly or bi-weekly, in homes, apartments, church, or in the workplace.
To Join a Small Group, please contact the church office for current Small Group Ministry in session. (320) 587-3031.

Sunday Morning Bible Fellowship Hour
September 22 – May 10
Location: Office Conference Room Every Sunday at 8:15 am
Location: Room 207 Upper Level Education Wing Every Sunday I 9:15 am
Current Study – “We the Church: The Priesthood of All Believers Called to Proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior”
Who loved you enough to bring you to Jesus or to be baptized? Have you ever thought about that? Through video presentations, study of Gods’ Word and group discussion the class will come to a greater understanding of the statement, “We The Church; The Priesthood of All Believers, called to Proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior”. The class will also look back in history to the time when immigrant communities of German Christians came to America, exploding into a mainline denomination of more than 6,000 congregations, now known as The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). Beyond the historical context the class will be challenged as it comes to a greater understanding of the role of every believer as part of the Priesthood of All Believers, called to proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.
The congregation hosts two opportunities to gather over a cup of coffee, enjoy fellowship and time gathered around God’s Word. The two options allow one to attend Sunday Morning Bible Fellowship and also participate in a Sunday worship service of choice. The theme or topic being studied is listed in both the Sunday Bulletin and Monthly Messenger. Along with fellowship and time in God’s Word, there will be coffee and bakery items each week. We welcome you to join us!
