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.

WE WANT YOU to help support our troops!  Troopons is a simple and fast way to get involved. Please help us help our troops by saving manufacturer coupons and dropping them at the Saron office by Sunday, November 10th.  All manufacturer coupons are welcomed and can be current or expired within one month of the current date.  If you'd like to help organize and mail the donations, please join us at Saron on Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm.

This Veteran’s Day, let’s give a little back to the soldiers and families that make our freedom possible! Contact Jill Schaefbauer (612-802-1057) or Kristen Vigoren ( for more information and ways to get involved.

In this six-week study Not Alone, join Jennie Allen, Lauren Chandler and Amena Brown as they talk all about friendship.

Join us Monday mornings from 9:30-11:00 for friendship and great conversation! Volunteer childcare is available upon request. Contact Molly Schroeder at or 763-263-2209 to sign up!






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 October, we will discuss, Knowing God. For over 40 years, J. I. Packer's classic has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling and a new preface by the author. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith— knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and practical tone, this thought-provoking work seeks to transform and enrich the Christian understanding of God. Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately. This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God while providing advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result.

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

The book discussion will be on October 16th.


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.
