A Message from Pastor Lisa

I wanted to connect with you to join in the important conversation that’s already taking place throughout our country and world about the COVID-19 virus (also known as the Corona Virus). The recent realities (and uncertainties) related to the virus have heightened this conversation in many of the places you gather, including church. As we’ve listened to and learned from other church leaders and medical experts in our area, we have developed a congregational response plan. Because of the closing of K-12 schools in North Dakota and the CDC’s recommendation to abstain from gatherings over 50 people, we’ve taken the step of suspending church school classes, confirmation, youth activities, and Wednesday Lenten meals. Additionally, Wednesday  and Sunday services will be online only through our live stream and we’re working to make them available on Facebook Live through our Facebook site. We promise to keep everyone informed as the situation changes. If interested, the full plan is available in the Newsletters page our our website.  We’re currently implementing stage 2 of the plan.  Thanks and God Bless!  


Come join us learn to live generously during Lent

This year on Sundays, we will be watching the culmination of the Living Generously video series where the Donovan family learns to walk with God.  How does our faith color our lives, particularly as we influence the lives of others? Come join us during Lent starting March 1st on Sundays at 10AM, watch live by clicking on the link below to our live service on our website, or watch later after each broadcast has been posted. If you would like to watch the living generously videos, contact the church office at 701-223-1001. They will not be available on the recording. Thanks!
