Ministry doesn't just take place inside the walls of the building, but through the actions of the people of the church outside their walls. This ministry provides a variety of faith-filled opportunities to witness the gospel through service and outreach projects in various settings. Included in this ministry are Soup Sundays, Safe House, Adopt-a-Family, Thanksgiving baskets, School Supply Collection, Ramsey County Nursing Home, Ramsey Family Shelter, Ronald McDonald House, Emergency Food Shelf, and Hmong Relocation.
