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.

Monday Morning Women's Book Study

Advent: He Keeps His Promises by Matt Chandler.

The King is coming. Jesus Christ has come and will come again. This is the hope of the Church whom He purchased with His blood. It is the eager expectation and desire of His people. His coming is our joy, for He is our treasure, our greatest good.

Join us Monday mornings as we explore the Advent season from 9:30-11:00 for friendship and great conversation!  This study has a series of videos  through Saron’s RightNow Media account, so if you miss a day you can still catch up!

Volunteer childcare is available upon request. Contact Molly Schroeder at or 763-263-2209 to sign up!



Everything you ever wanted to know about Angels!

On December 12th, 2019, please join us at 7PM for a discussion on angels. Angels play such a big role in the Christmas story, yet we know so little about them. What do we really know from the scriptures about angels? What is true biblical fact and what is legend or myth? We will attempt to answer as many questions as time will allow!




People of Faith Book Club

If you are looking for a warm, friendly place to discuss great Christian books with friends, you will love our book club, People of Faith Book Club for Everyone.

We will meet once a month for coffee, tea and donuts and share lively discussion on Christian fiction and non-fiction books. The discussion will take place from 7-9 PM the third (3rd) Wednesday of each month at Saron Lutheran Church.

Each month we’ll share:

  • Discussions on the book and characters
  • How the content applies to your spiritual life
  • A fun freebie about the book (bookmarks, word searches, crossword puzzles, worksheets, and overviews, etc.)

We’ll also learn a little about the authors and many book selections will also include a study guide for deeper insight.  All activities are optional.

Books can be borrowed from a friend or the library or purchased.  When possible, we’ll offer discounts on the book selections.

In our secular society, everybody gets caught up in the Christmas spirit. But how many understand the real story behind the joyous carols and peaceful manger scenes? Taking you on an illuminating journey to the heart of the nativity, Keller unpacks the message of hope, redemption, and salvation hidden in the biblical account of Jesus' birth.

Even people who are not practicing Christians think they are familiar with the story of the nativity. Every Christmas displays of Baby Jesus resting in a manger decorate lawns and churchyards, and songs about shepherds and angels fill the air. Yet despite the abundance of these Christian references in popular culture, how many of us have examined the hard edges of this biblical story?

In this book Timothy Keller takes readers on an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the nativity. By understanding the message of hope and salvation within the Bible’s account of Jesus’ birth, readers will experience the redeeming power of God’s grace in a deeper and more meaningful way.

If you are interested in participating please contact Ardy Prekker at or

The book discussion will be on December 18th.


Sisters of Saron

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.

Paul wrote the letter of 1st Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow Jesus and only Jesus. In this twelve-part series, author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen walks into the messy lives of the Corinthians and takes us through Paul’s works to the conflicted church.
