SERMON SERIES
Join us this summer as we welcome pulpit supply pastors to preach at our church. We are excited to hear from these pastors on how they share their love for Jesus!


WEEK 5:   Pastor Anita Beste recently retired after serving as a pastor for 22 years with three churches: Cambridge Lutheran in Cambridge, Prince of Peace in Roseville, and St. Mark in Circle Pines (interim). She enjoys visiting other churches and exploring together how God is shaping us and leading us into ministry in the future.  She and her husband, Steve, have 3 daughters all of whom live In Boston - so they visit there often. 

Welcome to Pastor Anita this week and we also look forward to hearing from her on August August 11.

  •  The finance office keypad will be re-coded
  •  The exterior doors will be re-keyed and new keys will be    issued
