"Presbyterian by Tradition and Ecumenical by Experience"
"We are an ecumenically enriched congregation that seeks to serve faithfully, follow God's word courageously, care for the environment intentionally, and nurture the human community willingly."
We are a constituted congregation of the Presbytery of Minnesota Valleys, which consists of 54 congregations in central and west central Minnesota. Our purpose is to be a friendly church home offering a broad spectrum of activities and services that will satisfy the interests and the needs of the entire congregation. A Protestant church of reformed tradition not currently available in Crosslake, to fill the existing gap for persons with backgrounds in Presbyterian, UCC, Methodist, Episcopal and other churches.
We have monthly Women's Luncheons, usually on the third Tuesday of the month; monthly Men's Luncheons, usually on the third Thursday; and monthly Potluck dinners on the fourth Wednesday in the Fellowship Hall. Please contact the church office for this months details. We look forward to you joining us for one of these fun community meals and fellowship.
As explained in the Book of Order, “The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies, and sound judgment should be chosen for this office”. Deacons are the "servants" or "caregivers" of our congregation. The Deacons are charged with ministries of care, witness and service by participating in activities that provide one on one contact, prayer, and fellowship. Our Deacons serve for three years, hold monthly meetings, and report to Session. Our current Board of Deacons are Pat Tweed, Jack Becker, Becky Bury, Jane Milliman, Joan Krueger and Shari Ochs.
