» Community Prayers on Facebook

Posted on: July 25, 2017

We offer a community prayer time on our Saint John the Evangelist page each Saturday morning. As the Rev. John Throop writes, in prayer “we claim God’s promises to walk with us through difficult passages in personal and national life. We can rejoice in God’s might, and we can rest in God’s mercy.”

You are welcome to post your prayers in the comments section, and to pray with others on their prayer requests by liking their comments. Here is the invitation:

Saturday is our day for shared prayers. Please leave your prayer request here. I will pray with you and I know that others in our community will too. Please note that we use the “like” option only to let our friend that we are praying with them. Thank you.

» Serving at First Nations Kitchen

Posted on: July 12, 2017

First Nations Kitchen (FNK) is the state’s only program serving free meals that are based on traditional Indigenous diet. They primarily serve the people of Little Earth but also welcome community members from across the Twin Cities.

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota welcomes all people. Our very first Bishop, Henry Benjamin Whipple, worked and served with the Native American community. While others were persecuting them, he was ordaining them. The Episcopal Church in Minnesota continues that legacy and maintains one of the largest Departments of Indian Work in the entire Episcopal Church.

We will be helping First Nations Kitchen serve their evening meal on Sunday, August 6.We have four shifts to staff:
•  Food prep:  1:30-3:30pm (6 volunteers)
•  Dining room setup: 4-5pm (3 volunteers including one dishwasher)
•  Dinner service: 5-6:30pm (8-10 volunteers)
•  Cleanup: 6:15-7:30pm (6 volunteers)

Contact Margaret Thor to sign up.

Serving at FNK gives us an opportunity to fulfill our calling to be in relationship with our neighbors. By serving others, we are able to honor God with thanks and praise for the gifts He has bestowed on us.
