Get Involved

Sunday School

Sunday School for all ages meets from September through May on Sunday mornings from 9:10 to 10:10 am.  We have nursery available during the Sunday School hour (and during the worship service).

For Sunday School, the adults are discussing parenthood as we talk about “shepherding the hearts of our covenant children.”

For our children’s classes we use Great Commission Publications.  “Children’s ministry is centered on discipling the next generation— preparing them as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. GCP’s curriculum equips children by firmly rooting them in God’s Word. Each age level of the Show Me Jesus curriculum uniquely contributes to the overall objective of a well-rounded, in-depth biblical education.”

Men’s Discipleship

The men meet for discipleship, fellowship, and prayer on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month. We meet at the Dunn Brothers Coffee in Eden Prairie at 7:30 am.

Women’s Discipleship

The women meet at 9:30 am on Thursday mornings for discipleship, fellowship, and prayer.  We meet at the Eden Prairie Senior Center (8950 Eden Prairie Rd, Eden Prairie, MN).  Currently we are studying the book of Isaiah.

Bible Study and Fellowship

We have an inter-generational Bible Study gathering the first and third Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Eden Prairie Senior Center (8950 Eden Prairie Rd, Eden Prairie, MN).  This study meets September through May.  Currently we are going through the book of Colossians together.

Membership Classes

Pastor Ryan teaches membership classes throughout the year.  This class is an opportunity to learn more about what we believe and why we believe it, to ask questions, and to grow together as disciples of Christ as we study the Scriptures.

Catechism

We teach historic, Protestant confessions of faith to our kids in catechism (primarily using the Heidelberg Catechism), so that they may know what they believe and why they believe it.  This class is for kids in sixth through eighth grade.  We meet together every Tuesday afternoon for an hour.  Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes of our kids to believe the promises of the gospel of Jesus (John 3:3-8; Romans 8:1).

Prayer Meeting

One of the most precious privileges we have as Christians is to commune with our Triune God in prayer.  We do this individually during the week, as well as together as a church on Sunday morning.  Because we value communing with our Heavenly Father in prayer we want to invite you to come and join us for a monthly time of prayer and singing the second Wednesday of each month at 7 pm at the Eden Prairie Senior Center (8950 Eden Prairie Rd, Eden Prairie, MN)

During this time of prayer we share the joys and burdens on our hearts as we cry out to the Lord and lift up prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication to the Lord.   Each month we will also look at one psalm together and pray through the psalm as we “hide the word of God in our hearts” (Psalm 119:11).

As one pastor says:

“The Psalms teach us to pray through imitation and response…Real prayer is always an answer to God’s revelation. The Psalms are BOTH prayer and revelations about God: the perfect ideal soil for learning prayer.

The Psalms take us deep into our own hearts 1000 times faster than we would ever go if left to ourselves…Religious/moral people tend to want to deny the rawness and reality of their own feelings, especially the darkness of them…The secular world has almost made an idol of emotional self-expression…But the Psalmists neither ‘stuff’ their feelings nor ‘ventilate’ them. They pray them–they take them into the presence of God until they change or understand them.

Most importantly, the Psalms force us to deal with God as He is, not as we wish he was. ‘Left to ourselves, we will pray to some god who speaks what we like hearing, or to the part of God we manage to understand. But what is critical is that we speak to the God who speaks to us, and to everything He speaks to us…the Psalms train us in that conversation.”

In addition to praying together we will also sing “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” (Colossians 3:16).  As we pray and sing together our hearts are knit together in love for the Lord and for each other.

We hope you can join us for this time of prayer, singing, and fellowship.
