Lakeville News

Takin’ it to Their Turf


Have you ever wondered what evangelism taken outside the church and into the public square looks like? Join us as Tom Short shares about preaching on America's campuses where New Testament evangelism came alive. After more than 30 years of campus ministry, you can't imagine the wealth of stories Tom can tell. This message is sure to inspire your faith in our amazing God. You'll rejoice as you hear about God's kindness in saving lost people. You'll catch a spirit of bold faith as you see God's Word prevail over the objections of skeptics. Each story will help sharpen your own evangelistic skills and help get your spirit ready for the MEGA Mission!

Taste of Mega!

Sunday, June 24, 12:15-4:00 PM, YMCA Camp Streefland (11490 Klamath Trail, Lakeville). Join us for a “taste” of Mega! Experience a little bit of what Mega is all about. We will have lunch after the 2nd service, then baptisms, followed up by a family friendly team building activity, before we wrap up with some open swim time. Bring others from church who haven't been exposed to the Mega yet. (Open swim and play time is from 3-4.) Questions? Contact Pastor Rob Busse, 612-839-9594.

Pick Up a Workbook

This summer all our locations will be doing a local mission trip, participating in evangelism training, and doing the same series in July called “Talk Less, Say More.” You will not only need the workbook to take notes at the trainings and weekend messages, but also to help you get spiritually ready for the MEGA Mission. Within the workbook, we have 40 days of preparation (starting June 15) including daily prayer points, a spot for daily journaling, and other topics to study. Please join us on this journey and pick up your workbooks at an upcoming service!


JULY 25-29

This year each Evergreen location will be reaching out to their own communities with love, service, acts of kindness, and prayer and there may even be some things that we do together! Our prayer is that God would receive greater glory and that He would grow our church locations through local mission work.


You can register online HERE. It is free to register, however $50 per person is a suggested donation to participate. These donations will go into our Kingdom Builders fund.

Multi-location News

Fast. Pray. Worship. Together.

All-Location Worship and Prayer

Sunday, July 8, 5:00-9:00 PM, Evergreen-Bloomington, Auditorium. The first-century church sought God together through prayer and fasting as they faced difficult times and strived to embrace Jesus’ call to witness the Gospel to all people. Our church is also navigating a difficult time and we are on the eve of an all-location mission week to love our neighbors and share the hope of Christ. Please join us for an all-location gathering of worship, prayer, and fasting as we believe God to humble, equip, and embolden us. We will pray that God will break spiritual strongholds and advance His kingdom. If you cannot attend, please consider fasting all day on Sunday and joining us in spirit by praying.

30 Year Anniversary Celebration

Save the Date!

Sunday, August 19,5:00-8:00 PM, Place TBD. Evergreen is turning 30 years old! So we're throwing an all-location celebration and would love for you and your family to join us. We'll be looking back at all the Lord has done, and looking forward to what the Lord might have for us in a promising future. Rally your small group, church friends, and all in your sphere of influence as we would love for every person to attend.

Mission Week Training

This summer we will be doing a mission trip to our city and like any short-term mission trip there is training to be done to prepare for it. Please plan to attend if any of the following are true for you:

  1. You know you should share your faith more 
  2. You want to be equipped to share the Gospel
  3. It’s time to step outside of your comfort zone
  4. You have a desire to be used by the Lord
  5. You will be participating in the summer mission trip

The method we will be training with is easy to lean and family friendly. After the training, we'll go out in teams and practice. Bring some snacks for the family to eat while you are out or bring money to pick up lunch. Not only will you leave being more confident in sharing your faith, but the Lord just might use you in someone else’s life. Questions? Contact Pastor Rob Busse.
