Mission Month

Adult Enrichment:

Building on anti-racism work that began at the 2021 Didier Seminar, the Peace and Justice Committee will host the Sunday morning Adult Enrichment at 11:15 a.m. in October.

Mission Sunday | Sunday, October 17
Please join us as we learn how our mission dollars are used to support our ministry partners here in the Twin Cities and throughout the world. Come to learn about volunteer opportunities with ministries like Beautiful Laundrette, Project Home and Sponsor-A-Family.

Beacon Housing Work Group is working with the Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative to lead an HOH “Inreach,” titled Powerful Together: Conversations for Change. Their goal is to have one-on-one conversations between congregants about affordable housing with 200 people. Affordable housing expenses are rising in Minnesota, and new legislation will be proposed in the coming year to provide supplemental resources for those in need. Sign up on Mission Sunday, October 17, to participate or contact Shana Wagner, Judith Foley, or Lisa Yost for more information.
