RECONNECT THIS SUMMER

We have great opportunities this summer. Whether you're looking for a one-time book club, a regular opportunity for prayer and devotion, or a regular book or Bible study - there's something here for you. Check out our opportunities below.


SIGN UP FOR ONE OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES HERE

  • There is something for you every Monday this summer! Our Monday rotation looks like this:


    First and Fourth Mondays: Out of Sorts Book Study

    Monday July 5 and 26, August 2 and 23 from 7:00pm - 8:00pm

    Greg and Angela Swenson's home

    Bring your questions and let's learn together how to be as comfortable with uncertainty as we are with solid answers. We will discover anew depths that will remain secure even through the storms of life. Greg and Angela invite caregivers to bring their children and youth to enjoy their swimming pool during the book study. Volunteer lifeguards will be available.


    Second Mondays: Bible Through Lectionary

    Monday July 12 and August 9 from 7:00pm - 8:00pm

    Greg and Angela Swenson's home

    Often when we pick up a Bible, we're looking for a particular story or illustration. Another way is to follow the lectionary calendar which follows a rotating pattern of God's story over a three year cycle. Join us as we follow the lectionary and let the Bible speak to us on its own terms. Children and youth are welcome to enjoy the Swenson's swimming pool during the Bible study, volunteer lifeguards will be present. We are reading Mark 6:14-29 in July and John 6:35, 41-51 in August.


    Third Mondays: Community Cookouts

    Monday June 21, July 19, and August 16 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

    First Covenant Church of Saint Paul

    These are fun gatherings for the whole church family! We grill, you chill. Meat, buns, and chips are provided. Please bring yourself, your sides, a beverage, and a chair. Games and fun activities will be available for all as we enjoy the time outdoors reconnecting with one another.

  • THE MAKING OF BIBLICAL WOMANHOOD

    Wednesday, July 14 at 7:00pm

    Pastor Anne and Gordy's home

    Where did the ideas of Biblical womanhood -- the belief that God designed women to be submissive wives, virtuous mothers, and joyful homemakers -- come from? The Bible or a series of clearly definable historical moments? Read the book and gather together to discuss. Led by Joe Mann.
