July 20 & 22
Mission To Our City:
For the first time in our 30-year history, all five of our church locations are hosting a local mission trip and online registration is officially open. As a part of Kingdom Builders, we will be out serving our community with acts of kindness and love, service projects, prayer, and sharing of the Gospel. This will be an incredible uniting time for our church. You’ve just got to be there! You can register on our app in Events or online HERE.
To cover the cost of Mission To Our City, we’re asking for a $50/person “suggested donation.” Can’t give that much, no problem. Can give more, great! We don’t want money to stop anyone from participating. These donations will go into our Kingdom Builders fund.
Look around. Listen and report! We need ideas for service projects for MTOC.
Any idea is worth submitting. We’ll fit in whatever we can with available work teams. Contact Pastor Mike Olmstead, 612-750-7989.
Kick Off: Worship and Prayer Night
Wednesday, July 25, 7:00-8:30 PM, Sanctuary. Join us as we launch Mission to Our City with an evening of Worship and Prayer. This will be a time to praise God and seek His blessing on our Mission work. There will also be final instructions for those participating during the week of MTOC. All are welcome to attend regardless of whether your participating in MTOC or not. Those registered for MTOC are strongly encouraged to come. Questions? Contact Pastor Tim Weber.

Single Parent Oil Change
Saturday, July 28, 10:00 AM-2:00 PM, Evergreen-Bloomington, Parking Lot. This summer's oil change will occur during MTOC. If you’re a single parent, you can park your car, serve for the day and come back to a fresh oil change. If you know a single parent that could use some help, this is a great way to introduce them to Evergreen. Contact Suzanne at email@example.com or 612-644-0448 (after 5pm) by Thursday, July 26 with the year, make and model of your vehicle.
30th Anniversary Celebration Cancelled
Given the recent investigation results and all of the resulting emotions being felt throughout our multi-location church family, we have decided this August would not be the proper time for an anniversary celebration, so we have decided to cancel the previously planned August 19th event. Ecclesiastes 3:4 says, "There is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.” Let’s take this time to weep and mourn with those in need, knowing that the Lord will give us another time to celebrate in the future.
Evergreen Family Camp
Not Just for Families
August 12-18, Mink Lake Wilderness Camp. There are 3 cabins available at our renewed Evergreen Family Camp. We would love to have some groups of un-marrieds join in! The Gunflint Trail is calling! If you’re interested in more details, contact Pastor Mike Olmstead, 612-750-7989.
