Save the Date: Genesis Vacation: October 11 - 13, 2019
The Genesis Vacation is our annual three day gathering at Covenant Pines, in McGregor, Minnesota. It’s restful and fun: we relax together, play together, and rest. In the mornings, some people love to linger around their breakfast table until almost lunch, while others love to take walks together. In the afternoons, the kids love attacking the climbing wall, the gym, and the playgrounds. At night, we sit around bonfires eating s’mores, we play black light dodgeball, and some choose to go to bed early. Make sure to save the date and plan on coming!
What are Sundays like?
We meet at Elim Church Center (3978 W. Broadway in Robbinsdale) at 10:45am on Sunday mornings. We like to call ourselves warmly liturgical: we sing, pray, preach, and celebrate the Eucharist (communion) together every Sunday. The atmosphere is interactive and intimate. The music is understated and beautiful. The prayers are often call and response. We move forward out of our seats to receive the Eucharist (which we do every week). The sermon is conversational and thoughtful. People dress casually. Parking is easy and convenient. The whole thing lasts about an hour.
We have weekly Sunday classes for children infants through 5th grade. All children participating in our programming check in at our kids’ check-in desk before going to their classrooms. We celebrate holidays together in the service; classes are only offered for infants and toddlers on those special days.
