With COVID-19 keeping us all isolated, we have moved our services fully online. We will be posting our services on Facebook and YouTube Sundays at 10 AM, followed by a live Q & A session to discuss the sermon right after.
We would like to know how we can better serve you as a church. Please fill out a quick survey to let us know: https://forms.gle/Yc9EsyiAZA15dCZE7
A Quick Update on Catalyst Services:
As Minnesota transitions out of “stay-at-home” and into a time of “stay safe,” church leadership is hard at work deciding how we can safely move forward.
First, know that all of the ways we connect online will continue to operate as usual into the summer. Worship services, home groups, and other church sponsored events will remain digital to keep involvement high and people safe.
Second, if you do choose to meet with others, we encourage you to observe Governor Walz’s order and keep it to groups of 10 or less. If you gather, we recommend taking wise precautions: gather outside, have hand sanitizer available, keep 6ft of social distance, and consider using masks. See these precautions as a way to serve and care for one another (Matthew 25:40).
If you would like to host a Sunday service watch party, please consider watching with neighbors or family members who have no church family! Allow this season to be a missional opportunity and watch what God does. Leadership also plans on creating discussion questions to help you dig deeper into the sermon content.
Make sure to check our social media account and enews often, as we have seen during this season plans can change quickly.
Take some time today to pray for one of the dear sisters or brothers you miss seeing in person, and know we miss seeing you! Christ is with us, unites us, and the Holy Spirit indwells us and holds us all together even while physically separated.
On Sunday May 31st, we are hosting a virtual lunch after church! We will be meeting through Zoom, just like our pre-service coffee hour! Make a fun meal and join us for some fellowship, even though we are still social distancing. If you would like to join, email email@example.com so we can send you the meeting information!
Starting in June, we will be changing up our Thursday night Bible study format. If you or any of your friends are interested in a deep dive on the basics of the Christian faith, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This study is for anyone, either someone new to the faith or someone who wants a fresh look at faith again. We hope to see you there!
Coming up in June we will be hosting our church annual meeting! We will look at the year ahead, celebrate this last year, pray for our community and more. Save the date, June 22 at 8 PM, we will have more information coming your way soon!

If you are still interested in helping them and have some time during the week, they will be holding daily packing and distribution of food in their parking lot for folks who still need help.
