July 15- Minnehaha Falls Bandstand Worship

When: Sunday, July 15, 10:30 am

Each year we hold worship at Minnehaha Falls Park. Our annual free community picnic will follow at 11:45 at the picnic tables adjacent to the bandstand. Look for Spirit Garage Signage to guide your way.

While the picnic is free, you are welcome to bring something to share! Please sign up here so that we are sure to have all our bases covered.

During lunch, CD Onofrio is going to share some music with us. CD is a musician from Niagara Falls, Canada, and Berkeley, CA and likes to travel the world sharing music. You can hear his sound here.

After lunch, take some time to enjoy the park walking and bike trails down to the falls and creek below. Bike and Cart rentals are available at Sea Salt Restaurant.

Traffic may be tricky this day, as Lake Street is supposed to be closed.


July 22-NO WORSHIP service but come out for Open Streets!


Open Streets: Lake+Minnehaha

When: Sunday, July 22, 11 AM-5 PM

Where: The Hook and Ladder, 3010 Minnehaha Ave

Art Vandalay will be playing at 12 noon; 3 on the Tree will be playing at 2 pm.  Volunteers are needed to help with the day including string art & crafts table, making cotton candy, live music setup/teardown, etc. You can sign up here to help! This is a great way for us to connect with the neighborhood we call home. So if you’ve been wondering why anyone hasn’t found us hidden away in our little building for a couple hours a week….well, it’s because we need to be out in the street! This is a great time to do that. We will mostly be in between the police station and the Hook and Ladder Theater, so we should not be hard to find.

Summer always has a lot going on, because we have to be outside when we can! Here’s hoping it is not too hot. As we think about that, we’ll just remember that it has only been 3 short months since our last blizzard.
