EVERGREEN CHURCH - NEW HOPE - 3351 Independence Ave N. - Service Time: Sundays, 10:15 AM
Evergreen Church is a non-denominational Christian church for people seeking an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and desiring to have a compassionate impact on the Twin Cities.
Evergreen has a unique ministry approach. We are a multi-site church with five different locations in the Twin Cities. Although we meet in five different locations throughout the Twin Cities, Evergreen is one church. We chose this strategy to create unity, foster collaboration, construct pastoral accountability and maximize office efficiency. We operate according to the same church by-laws, are financially supported as one organization and all members become members of the same church. Evergreen currently meets in Lakeville, Bloomington and New Hope. There are also two locations in Minneapolis under a different name: The Rock and The Urban Refuge. The Rock meets in the Urban Refuge building and is an Evergreen church designed specifically to meet the needs of students, young couples and singles. The Urban Refuge meets in South Minneapolis and is an Evergreen church designed to meet the needs of urban and multicultural families.
MAKING AN ETERNAL DIFFERENCE Making an Eternal Difference is our vision statement. That’s what we are here to do. We want to see God work in the lives of every man, woman and child that comes through the doors of our church—to make a difference that will last for eternity!
In order to accomplish this vision, God gave us a three-part strategy to help people: 1) Take Root in their faith, 2) Reach Out to those who don’t know Christ, and 3) Plant Seeds of kindness and good deeds in our community.
TAKE ROOT There are three main strategies for helping people in our church to grow in their faith: weekend services, small groups and ministries.
Weekend Services - Our weekend services are design to encourage and build up the body of Christ. We believe that people coming to church are looking for a real experience of God’s presence. We hope to provide that through authentic worship and practical Bible teaching, with occasional communion.
Small Groups - Small groups are a vital part of the larger Evergreen community. A small group is like having your own family within the larger church. Groups are made up of 6-15 people who get together in members' homes during the week. In a small group you participate in relevant biblical discussions that will help you grow in your relationship with God.
Ministries - Ministries are an opportunity to use the gifts that God has given you to serve others.
REACH OUT We exist to help reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In a variety of ways, we strive to share the love of Christ with others. We encourage our members to be involved in the lives of those around them. Also, we occasionally send out short term mission teams to reach out with the Gospel in other areas of the world.
PLANT SEEDS We are partnered with an organization called Love, INC (which stands for “Love In the Name of Christ”). This organization teams up various churches of different denominations to meet practical needs within the community. Resources are pooled from all churches in order to have a greater impact than any one church could have alone. To get involved, check out our information table for more details or go to www.loveincnh.org. We also meet our community’s needs through activities like school supply drives, neighborhood yard work, and collections for social action organizations.
