Dear Friends,

We are coming to a close on our worship series, Bold Church. Each week we touched on aspects of the bold church in Acts and considered ways in which we might emulate them in today's world. Our finale looks not at Acts, but 1 Peter 1:6-9; 13-21. I will be focusing on our why- grace through Jesus; our how- prepare your minds for action and discipline yourselves; and where- it is for the outward focus of God's Kingdom and the people God so loves. Being a bold church is not easy. It takes preparation and discipline, but it is a joyful journey!

We will continue to worship online, but we are adding in person worship beginning this Sunday, August 2. Before attending worship, please watch this tutorial on making our in-person worship as safe as possible.

Please add Dick Swanson to your prayers of healing. We also include Linnea Lindquist, Martha Johnson, and Dianna Jussila.  

See you Sunday online or in-person.


Pastor Jim
Sign up to Attend Worship Service

Think of this guideline as an RSVP. Your RSVP allows us to better predict how many people we can expect at each service time so that we can maintain appropriate social distancing. We are asking that families RSVP together for the total number of people who are planning to attend. You may call the church office at 320.558.6851 to let us know you are attending or use Sign-Up Genius.

Please RSVP by Thursday each week .

This instructional video will help prepare you for worshiping in person. We are asking those who decide to worship in person to watch the video become attending. Thank you.

Garage Sale

We'd like to sell your authentic retro treasures. Before you head to your local donation center to drop off things found in your cleaning and organizing frenzy during COVID-19, please bring the “good stuff” to Rejoice. We will be having a garage sale of some sort in the near future. Donated treasures may be dropped off during office hours:
  • Monday - Thursday
  • 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

If you would like to be the CEO (lead organizer) of this fundraiser, please call the church office. This onetime event can be so much fun for volunteers and shoppers alike. Help us slay this sale like a boss!
