Outdoor Services 2017

OutdoorServiceThe "church on the hill" in Excelsior will be outdoors (weather permitting) the second Sunday of each month this summer. Bring a friend, a lawn chair, and a hat if it's sunny, though we make a point of providing as much shaded space as possible. Stay for a cool drink, cookies and conversation after the service. In the event of bad weather, services will be held in the sanctuary. You'll see the site of the service as you come into the upper parking lot (it's on the south lawn to the left of the main entrance), or walk up the hill or sidewalk along 3rd Street if you park in the back.

Church is at 10 a.m., and we'll have a theme for each service:

  • June 11--Blessing of the Quilts
  • July 9--Blessing of the Children (complete with an infant baptism)
  • August 13--Blessing of the Pets

Refreshments will be available after the service, and all are welcome.

Boat Cruise Fundraiser

Our annual BOAT CRUISE FUNDRAISER is always a big hit with the lucky people on board! This year our excursion will be on Sunday, September 17, and the colors should be glorious! The SeaNote yacht provides an afternoon of fun and fellowship on Lake Minnetonka, and our own Captain Hank will be at the helm. Save the date!                                   lake2

Book-signing Event, July 20

Author Melinda Nelson and award-winning photographer Karen Melvin joined us Thursday evening, July 20, for an engaging presentation on their research for the beautifully illustrated book Boathouses of Lake Minnetonka.

At the event, a custom-made boat blanket pictured below, which features a detailed monogram of Lake Minnetonka and its port communities, was raffled off. Proceeds will be given to the Minnetonka Tree House youth outreach program, an organization supported by the church.

Blessing of the Children

Congregants kids/grandkids (and maybe some neighbor kids too?) helped us celebrate the next generation on Sunday, July 10! They'll feel loved, we guarantee. And they got a front-row seat to the special joy that day of an infant baptism!
