Bible Journaling Event

Do you like to doodle? Looking for inspiring ways to connect with God’s Word? Does your creative side need some exercise? Join us for Saron's Bible Art Journaling Event!

Bible Art Journaling is a meditative experience, using artistic expression as a way of journaling personal insights we receive from studying the Bible. During this class, we will paint, color, stamp and trace our impressions of God's Word, but don't worry- artistic ability is optional! This workshop is not about creating masterpieces- It's about deepening our relationship with God in a creative way.

When: Saturday, February 9th 9:00-11:00 a.m.

Where: Saron Lutheran Church

What to bring: Your Bible or journal.

Questions? Contact Jodi Fuchs, 763-228-8615 or

Cost: $15 for Adults and teens, which includes a “starter kit" of basic supplies. Children 8-12 are free.

Please Register here by February 3rd




Our wish for you is for you to be ready for whatever life throws at you, to be stronger, to have a deeper faith, to know more clearly where your hope is and to have more confidence in God's faithfulness.  A number of Saron people have been creating a nine month series to encourage a greater understanding in or re-affirm and deepen the very basics of our faith, to help us get to know and wrestle with what we believe and to strengthen the foundation for our lives, which is our knowledge of and trust in Jesus Christ.  We believe it is critical for Saron that we come to a common understanding and practice, to build up our lives, draw us closer together and to give us tools and knowledge for the days and years ahead.  So... from September 9 through May 19, in Sunday worship, woven into classes for all ages and delivered to homes through various means, we will look at 25 core beliefs and make them more a part of our lives.

A few resources are available right now that cover much of what we will focus on: Believe: Living the Story of the Bible to Become Like Jesus, available in the Saron office for $5.00 (and Sunday mornings). This is more textbook-like but lots of good information; and

Think, Act, Be Like Jesus: Becoming a New Person in Christ, available in the Saron office for $8.00 (and Sunday mornings). This is an easier read, more of a summary, and includes some helpful stories.

There are also books for children at various ages such as Believe Storybook, also available in the Saron office for $9.00 (and Sunday mornings).

These books also may be ordered through Amazon or (For Believe, make sure you search for "Believe NIV".)

We encourage you to purchase one or all of these books as a companion to the series because they will reinforce what we are learning.  And please support this endeavor with your prayers!  This is an exciting and important time, because life happens and what we believe matters for that!

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:6-7 NIV)

These books can be purchased in the Saron office or may be ordered through Amazon or   (For Believe, make sure you search for "Believe NIV".)
