High School Mission Trip 2017

Coming up next week is our High School Mission Trip to Sisseton, South Dakota! For those that are going you can find the packing list and itinerary by clicking here. We will be meeting up at church Saturday, July 15 at 11:50am to pack up the trailer with everything the students don’t need on the vans. On Sunday, July 16 at 4:59am we will meet up to pray and then load up in the vans to travel to South Dakota! We will return back at church on Sunday, July 23 at noonNote that the cost for the trip this year is $125. Please have that in on Saturday during the packing party.

This year we are doing something new called “Sponsor-A-Student”. The premise behind this is for our church to support the students through praying and encouragement. On Sunday we had all of our sponsorships taken! Woohoo!! That means, every student will have at least 5 people praying for them and writing them a letter throughout the week in South Dakota. If you would like to sponsor a student you can do so by clicking here, choosing a student and writing them a letter to:
Dakota Sonshine Attn: Ben Wahlman
45227 SD Hwy 10
Sisseton, SD 57262

Tribe of the One | Evening Series

For the next three Wednesday evenings we will be in a new series, “Tribe of the One”. In our previous series we looked at our identity in Christ on an individual basis. During this series we will look at what our identity in Christ is as a group. We will break down what it means to be part of the tribe of God; what it means to live for Him in light of the Gospel. We look forward to seeing how this series brings us closer together as we reflect on our identity in Christ.

Night of Reading

On April 12th we will have our night of reading to prepare our hearts and minds for Easter! We will join together from 6:30-8:30pm in the Rafters to read through ONE of the Gospels in the Bible (Matthew, Mark, Luke or John). In case you are wondering what that time table looks like, it isn’t much! (See below) We hope to see you there!

For comparison, you can read:

  • Mark in the typical span of one quarter of NFL football.
  • John in the time lost watching commercials in four hours of cable TV.
  • Matthew in the average span of four Major League Baseball innings.
  • Luke in the typical length of one half of an NBA playoff game.
  • Matthew & Mark in the time it took to see Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
  • Mark & Luke in the span of three plays of Michael Jackson’s Thriller album.
  • Matthew & John in the average time of one regular season NBA game.
  • Luke & John in the time it took to see Marvel’s The Avengers.
  • Mark, Luke, & John in the time you took to watch Peter Jackson’s King Kong.
  • Matthew, Mark, & John in the time of an average NFL football game.
