Dean has put together another great slideshow video for us. Here’s the video from our outdoor baptism that we played in this Sunday’s service. This is always such a great time and a highlight in our church family’s life. Congratulations to everyone who followed Jesus in believer’s baptism!

Praying and walking

August 28th, 2014 by WebPastor


Paul Johnson is keeping the trail around the church property mowed for those who walk, jog, run, etc. It’s a great way to get out and get a little exercise as well as have a very vidid prayer reminder of how exciting it is to see all that God is doing among us as well as what He might have in store! Check it out and tell Paul thanks!

I was reminded of this:

August 21st, 2014 by WebPastor


After the baptism service on Sunday (if the weather cooperates) the celebration will continue with a potluck lunch.

So bring a dish to share and your lawn chair. We’ll supply the paper products and something to drink. If you forget, come anyway. There is always plenty of food and Journey North Church has some fantastic cooks!!

Again with the weather checking…

August 21st, 2014 by WebPastor

(Click the picture above to see a bigger view of it)

Will it be a go twice? We were able to have our outdoor service on the church property along with a great VBS. We’re praying this Sunday at 10:30 we’re able to have our outdoor baptism service at Pine City Public Beach / Westside Park and follow it with a potluck picnic. If the weather is bad, it’s back to 2 services… 9 & 10:30 at our regular location: 840 Main Street So.

If you haven’t been baptized the way Jesus was and would like to follow Him in that, remember that we believe baptism doesn’t save anyone… we’re saved by grace through faith in Jesus… and His dying for our sin on the cross, being buried, and raised again. That’s what baptism pictures. It’s called believer’s baptism. By going down into the water and coming up out of the water, it pictures our new life in Christ: dying to sin and self and being raised again to new life. It’s a public profession of something that’s happened inside. If you’d like to be baptized Sunday, let us know (email, text, Facebook, phone message, etc.) and be there Sunday with something modest to change into to be dunked in the water! Bringing a towel is a good idea as well!

Handing out cold water on a hot day at the parade is always a good time. Thanks to all who joined us and demonstrated God’s love in this tangible way.
