  • God Unboxed

    The writers of the Bible describe God as a consuming fire and uncontainable – a God we should worship with reverence and awe. We have a tendency to put God in a box and attempt to control Him.  The God of the Bible has demonstrated that He cannot be controlled or put in a box.  Many times He revealed Himself in powerful and unexpected ways.  This was never more true than on the first Easter morning.

    On Easter morning, when Jesus walked out of the tomb, God demonstrated in perhaps the most visible way ever, that He would not be contained. When we experience God unfiltered, our faith grows to new dimensions unimagined.  When we encounter God unboxed, we are never the same.

    On Easter Sunday, we begin this new series, God Unboxed.

     


     

  • Leadercast

    On May 9, 2014 we are hosting the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast for our community.  We need better leaders in our communities, businesses, organizations, and in homes across the world. Leadercast is focused on positively changing the way the world thinks about leadership, and building Leaders Worth Following.

    Leadercast is a one-day leadership event featuring a diverse lineup of speakers, broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, GA to host sites throughout the world.

    Prairie Oak is the ONLY Leadercast host site in Anoka County!

    Leadership is not reserved for those with a ‘C’ in their title. These leadership, team-building and communication skills are valuable for everyone – business and community leaders, managers, organizers, students, volunteers, teachers – anyone who wants to develop their skills working with others!

    Build Lasting Relationships – Transform your Community – Be a Leader Worth Following

  • A Call to Prayer

    The Lenten season is a time of sacrifice and repentance – a time to identify with the sufferings of Jesus Christ.  It is a season in which we remember the amazing gift of life that Jesus offered on the cross.  We cannot understand the empty tomb and celebrate His resurrection without traveling to the cross.  How we celebrate, the depth to which we can celebrate, is determined by how we prepare our hearts to understand the life and death of Jesus today.

    During this season, we are calling our community to prayer – prayer for the needs of one another and prayer for our community and world. Each night, from now until Easter, someone will represent the prayers of the people here at the church at 7 p.m.  The flame is lit each night to represent the presence of the Spirit of Christ in our world – the Spirit which purifies our hearts, empowers us for service and draws us to a deeper hunger for God.
