Filed Trips for the Soul - Overview
What is God up to in new mission starts in the Twin Cities? The Holy Spirit is moving and shaking in new & surprising ways throughout the metro in emerging faith communities – where the idea of “church” might be alternative worship or “Beer & Hymns” at the bar.
In 2017, folks at Immanuel are invited to gather together for “Field Trips for the Soul”, to worship with some of our urban neighbors, to explore what God is up to beyond our community, to exercise our “theological imagination” muscles, and maybe even get a little out of our comfort zone! These field trips may include:
Sunday Night worship (note: many meet on Sunday nights*):
Other possible ministries (non-Sundays):
- Beer & Hymns or Storytelling Night with Humble Walk @ Shamrock’s Irish Pub (St. Paul)
- Hymntap with LydiaPlace @ Dubliner’s Pub (St. Paul)
- Shobi’s Table (Thursday food truck ministry with homeless, East St. Paul)
Who are these for?
- Anyone (all sinners welcome!)
- No gawkers (yes, we’ll be around people quite different from us doing worship quite differently)
- Generous hearts (be prepared to bless them generously; these ministries are mostly grant-funded with part-time pastors… your support matters!)
How will this work?
- Stay tuned each month in Immanuel’s communications for the latest “Field Trip for the Soul”
- Gather at the appointed date/time
- Carpool from Immanuel option
- If you would be willing to “host” a carpool/event, let us know!
- Pastor Angela will meet you at the field trip site
May God prepare & provide, sustain & surprise you with the Holy Spirit along the way!
