Summer Worship

Come to church every Sunday at 10:00 am — or earlier, because Organist Peder Flaten plays awsome preludes. You will find rest, joyful music, uplifting messages, and a warm welcome. Stay a few extra minutes for coffee, donuts, and conversation.  Sunday worship celebrates our precious Minnesota summer days.
