July 30-August 11: Spoke Folk Summer Mission Trip (Minnesota Tour)
There are few truly life-changing experiences – this is one of them! Spoke Folk is a mission trip that trains high school and college students how to be missionaries in their daily lives. You will meet other students and counselors from across the country and travel on bicycles from town to town, stopping each night to share a Christian concert along with testimonies and skits. Be challenged, built up and encouraged and make a difference in the lives of people you meet. If you would like more information, please contact Pastor Mark and visit www.SpokeFolk.org.
What is “The Garden”?
The Garden is a community for young adults that is designed to be a safe place for people of all beliefs, backgrounds, and world-views.
This group is designed to be a place where young adults will come and grow together. It is a safe place that brings an atmosphere of trust and community. We believe that Christ set a perfect example for how we are supposed to live our lives aligned with Him. One example comes from Matthew 26:38-42. Jesus, in a moment of extreme distress, goes to His Father and cries for help. We can follow his example and bring all of our struggles to Him.
Our name is a reminder that even Jesus, our Savior, had moments of breaking down and crying out. Even Jesus needed the love and strength of His father. “The Garden” shows us that we can cry out to God as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane.
The Garden is a safe place to cry out and realize we are crying to a God who is bigger than this world. The Garden is place where people can be built up and grow, not only with each other, but with our heavenly Father. The Garden is a place that focuses on the Bible and the unconditional love of Jesus. The Garden is a place where everyone can grow in their understanding of who God is and that he has designed us to radically spread the love of Jesus Christ to all.
Join us for any of our gatherings, Bible studies, retreats, Worship times or fun events. The Garden meets on Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. at Water’s Edge.
