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.

All are welcome!  Join us at 2pm at Saron on November 17th to assemble hundreds of sandwiches for the homeless and disadvantaged in our surrounding communities.

The Minneapolis Recreation Development Inc. / 363.org is a 501(c) (3) Non-Profit organization that serves the homeless, poor, and disadvantaged families in the Twin Cities. They do this every night by providing food, clothing, personal care items and on-the-street care and support.

There are an estimated 10,000 homeless people in the Twin Cities metro area, including 3,000 children under age 17.

Sign-up in the narthex (church foyer) to donate or volunteer, or contact Molly at 763-263-2209 or Kristen at AdultMin@Saron.org.

Monday Morning Women's Book Study

Life is never as easy as we want it to be. Car tires blow out. Work piles up. Kids throw tantrums. It’s a struggle. But should it be? We often believe that when we follow Jesus, life should get easier. And when it doesn’t we tell ourselves we’re failing or stuck or abandoned by God. But it’s simply not true.

In this 6-part series, The Struggle is Real, Nicole Unice explores why life’s a struggle and what to do about it. With God as the hero of the story, a hard day has new meaning. We can find joy in him instead of feeling stuck. And our lives can be defined by redemption instead of struggle. This new study begins November 5th. It’s also a "join anytime" study using videos on Rightnow media, so missed sessions can be viewed any time. Join us Monday mornings from 9:30-11:00 for friendship and great conversation! Volunteer childcare is available upon request.  Contact Molly Schroeder at molly@saron.org or 763-263-2209 to sign up!
