Adult Ministries

Community is often the best place for spiritual growth. Through small group relationships with people from many different backgrounds, experiences and understandings, we can come together, challenge one another, and enrich each other’s lives.

As a church community, we often meet for events, bible studies, retreats, to meet needs in the community, and sometimes just to spend time together. Most of our groups are open to everyone, but we also offer separate Men’s and Women’s ministries to allow a space for conversations and support for some of the unique challenges that we all face.

Thursday Bible Study

A conversational study lead by Pastor Kyle, which meets every Thursday at 11:00am. We are currently traveling through the Gospel of Luke.

Monday Morning Small Group for Women

Mondays 9:30-11:00 a.m. for friendship and great conversation.  Volunteer childcare is available upon request.  Contact Molly at molly@saron.org or 763-263-2209 to sign up! (You can join us anytime.) Exodus; God’s Relentless Pursuit of Us: The Bible isn't just about the characters. The Bible is about God. The narrative is telling the story of God bringing His creation back to Himself. And it starts with Exodus. Monday mornings from 9:30-11:00 a.m. (No class on July 24)

The Sisters of Saron, or SOS, is open to women of all ages. We meet on the last Sunday of every month at 6:00 p.m. We enjoy coming together for special events, bible studies, prayer, good food, crafts, retreats, and special activities.

Currently, we are studying Living Life Together by Shauna Niequist. Each session stands alone, so please join us anytime!

The Men of Saron normally meet every last Sunday of every month, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. but through the summer months, they will be helping at the Wednesday evening 7 p.m. services instead. There's good conversation, a bit of ribbing, sometimes food, but always support and getting into real concerns, struggles and the victories of life in Christ.  They get into scripture and/or topical discussions.  There is lots of room for questions.  In fact, most of the time when someone asks a question that they think is dumb or think they might be the only one that doesn't know the answer, others in the group are saying, "I am so glad someone asked that.  I was wondering the same thing!"  The men reinforce each other in their sometimes unique roles as fathers, brother or sons and support each other through prayer and a safe place to be heard.  (What is shared in Men's Group stays in the Men's Group.)

The Men of Saron also periodically take on service projects to help people in need, regularly get together with men from other congregations and occasionally put on a fine fund-raising breakfast for a variety of worthy causes.

NEW MONDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY starting July 17 - July 31 at 7 p.m.   Shaken: Who are you when life is steady?  Who are you when storms come? Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream or heartbreak.  In Shaken, Tim Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity with God.  This moving series features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.  Led by Mary NIklaus.
