Walking Distance Day: Our calling as a church is to have a Corner Church and a valued in-community business within walking distance of people in our city. On September 25, we will be meeting at Corner Coffee Uptown at 9a and then walking to Corner Coffees North Loop, Camden, and Northeast, and then back to Uptown. It will be about 18 miles and take about 8 hours. We will be walking, connecting, having coffee, eating lunch, seeing, and praying.

Corner Church Fall Retreat is October 1-3 at Camp Lebanon. This is an annual Corner Church event where you can find connection, rest, and refocusing. Information on pricing, schedule, theme, and more are all available on the Fall Retreat brochure. Registration is now open!!! Deposits are due on September 19.

As a part of the Corner Church family, you have endless opportunities to get involved and to serve. Be sure to mark your Connection Card with any areas where you have interest in helping. Your community pastor will connect with you from there.
Prayer Focus:

Missions: Pray for Roger and Laurie K. They are missionaries in a sensitive region in Africa. Please be praying for their children and grandchildren that live in Texas, that they would have valuable connection time as they are here and connection as they go back to the field soon.

Local: Be praying for people personally affected by gun violence in our city. As we focus on loving our local, investing in needs early, and doing it together, pray that our efforts have an impact in our city.

Church: Pray for Rich and Anna as they are moving to Northeast Minneapolis this week!
