Celebrate the Sunday School Year with a Youth-led Service May 19
SpringHouse Youth will be leading our joint SpringHouse worship service on May 19, celebrating the end of the Sunday School year. Then after the service, join in a fundraiser lunch for the summer service trip to South Dakota. See you there!
Affirmation of Baptism
Join Salem as we celebrate with four of our Youth in the Affirmation of Baptism service (confirmation) at the 10:30 am service on May 12.
That morning, Jasper, Clark, Ava, and Cassie will stand up in front of this community of faith to say “yes” to their baptism. It will be a special day for all of us. We will mark it being special with cake and a reception in the gathering space during the SpringHouse coffee hour following the 10:30 am service.
Sign up for Day Camp!
We want your kids, your grandkids, your neighbors kids, even your neighbors grandkids! That’s right! Let’s gather them all for this summer’s amazing South Minneapolis Day Camp—”Come to the Table”!

South Minneapolis day camp is a progressive ecumenical summer day camp experience. Our theme this year, “Come to the Table” will allow us to explore food justice, creation care, radical welcome, communion, and being part of a global community as we play, pray, do art, sing and learn together!

We hear a lot of things in the news about the situation in Israel and Palestine. What’s the Biblical history that connects the dots, how does it relate to the Bible and modern history?

Guest speakers TBA.
June 16, 23, 30, July 7 & 14: Myths, Leviticus, and Us
Pastor Laurie of First Christian will lead us through a study on Leviticus, helping us examine some common myths and how people use the Bible to ‘justify’ certain positions.
