Important Church News
- 61 Days of Prayer – Beginning November 1st and going through December 31 (61 days) we will sign up for a 30 minute prayer slot. You are encouraged to pray as the Lord leads you, but we encourage you to specifically pray for the church. Each Sunday you will be given an insert with prayer needs listed. Sign-ups begin October 29th. Because of our busy schedules in Nov/Dec this will be in place of our monthly prayer time.
- Living on Mission – Every week people move into our neighborhoods. We have been trying to discern the best way to reach out to these people and share with them the ministry of Minnetrista Baptist Church. Beginning in November there will be a basket in the back of the church with small baggies of chocolate hugs. You are encouraged to take one to your new neighbors or maybe a neighbor you have not met yet. There will be some bags with names and addresses. For those with the gift of conversation, we encourage you to take these and deliver them to our new neighbors who have moved into our area recently. Introduce yourself as a member of the Minnetrista Baptist Church and give them the bag of hugs and say welcome! It’s a way for us to live on mission!!
On October 21st the youth group did a great job raking leaves at Phyllis Bruhn’s home. After that they did some leaf raking at Pastor John’s home and then did some cleaning in the church basement. Then we ate PIZZA!! Thanks youth group!
