Saturday, September 9, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Evergreen-Bloomington. We've invited GCC Pastor Pat Sokoll from Colorado to train us in "Relational Care."

Childcare is provided!
The Hospitality Center for Chinese is looking for volunteers to host Chinese students for 1-7 days. The students are coming to Minneapolis to study at the University of Minnesota. Go to hcchinese.org and click on "Volunteer" and then "Host Family" to learn more and signup.

For you parents, one of the most important and significant things you can do for your children is to pray for them. Prayer changes circumstances. Prayer changes hearts (yours and child’s). Prayer engages God. Prayer builds your faith and develops you into a better parent.
At our Back to School dinner we had on Monday night, we prayed for each of the children represented at our dinner, and specifically for these 18 things. I thought I would share it as a resource for you parents. And for all of anyone, it’s a great list of personal character attributes to pray for yourself! Click HERE.

For three weeks in August, Evergreen, The Rock, and The Urban Refuge, will be uniting around a special message series called “United by the Core.” You will hear messages from gifted pastors and testimonies from members sharing an array of faith-inspiring stories. These three weeks will stir up your faith, hope and love!
This year we are spotlighting "Core Value 1: Grace & Love" with a message series entitled, The Burning Heart of God. At the very core of God is a burning, passionate, inexhaustible love--a love so great that God put his precious Son in our place – bearing the wrath and punishment for our sin. Why? For God so loved the world!
