Men’s Ministry Rock Climbing

Serenity Men went Rock Climbing this past weekend and experienced first hand what Paul spoke about in Phil 4:13. “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race.” Climbing only worked when they looked up and pressed in. Although some of them looked down for a photo op, it was not good to look down.

Men’s Ministry-Serenity Canoe Trip

Serenity Men had an awesome time on their canoe trip today! Here is a quick view of the outing written by voyager Darren:
“On a rainy Saturday morning 16 brave Serenity Men gathered at the church to head to the St. Croix river for a little canoe trip and some guy time.
Some of the experiences included lunch on a sand bar, splashing each other (boys will be boys), singing songs, skipping rocks on the water, and we even had an eagle sighting. We also talked about mom’s and dad’s, dreams and desires, things that are missing as well as things that are good, and there was even a rowdy debate between canoes about the devil. All in all it was a great day of fellowship with a splash of adventure. Our hope and prayer is that as we grow in God we also grow as men as we are in a battle for our very lives and we can’t do it alone!”

SVCC Pancake Breakfast

The first ever SVCC Pancake Breakfast was a huge success! A HUGE shout out to the visionary of this event, Mike Spakousky for spearheading everything from start to finish. Also a big thanks to everyone who turned out, and also to those who bought tickets to support SVCC Missions but could not attend. It was a great time of fellowship, along with a wonderful breakfast. Many SVCC church members helped serve, and a great time was had by all, while raising funds for our Missions & Outreach team. God is smiling!
