Since 1977 we have been serving God in Lake County. We desire to help people find a personal faith relationship with Jesus Christ and to grow in that faith through inspiring worship, relevant Bible study and hands-on ministry in our community. As a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church we are committed to living the Good News, participating in worldwide mission, and practicing an authentic Christian faith.
Pastor Steve Larson and his family will worship with us for the first time Sunday September 7th! This service will be the last of our Summer season and will start at 9:30. The following Sunday will be our Fall Kickoff, and Steve will be officially installed. We look forward to welcoming Steve, his wife Heather, and their children, Joshua, Rachel and Sarah! To help the Larson family get to know everybody, it would be nice for everyone to wear their nametags for a few weeks. We pray for God’s blessing for the Larson family and our church as we go through this transition.

Tending a gardening is a daily activity, just like tending to our faith. Beginning Saturday, August 23 meet weekly with Nancy Borkman through the end of October in the Erik Peterson Memorial Garden and monthly indoors in non-growing season. You can choose between two regularly scheduled gardening times every week to accommodate your busy lives – whichever one you feel fits your schedule better.
Various topics of discussion will center on the similarities between tending a garden and tending to our faith. Each gathering will have a topic focus to learn more about an aspect of growing a garden that corresponds with a faith application. With discussion there will be the usual garden tending activities of picking vegetables, watering, weeding, the how-tos of seed propagation, plant selection, direct sowing, transplanting, digging, harvest schedules, frost protection and general maintenance.
Tuesdays from 6:45 to 7:45 o’clock p.m. (adjusted for light as the fall progresses) and Saturdays from 8:30 to 9:30 o’clock a.m. One topic each week. Monday’s topic will repeat on Saturday.
Refreshments like donuts or coffee cake and a beverage (temperature appropriate for the weather) will be provided.
