MainStreet Journey

MainStreet Ministry During COVID-19

We are launching virtual Sunday school and midweek House Church gatherings. Learn more below!

Greetings Church in Quarantine!

Now is the time to Love Our Neighbors as Ourselves and join our fellow Minnesotans in arresting the rapid spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  MainStreet has suspended in-person gatherings and the church building at St. Martin’s By the Lake will be closed until further notice.

We are working hard to creatively find new ways to be “together” and encourage one another during these unprecedented times. We had 17 households attend our first virtual midweek gathering via Zoom (see photo).

We want to build on that experiment and implement the weekly virtual gatherings below. Please try to get acquainted with Zoom.com and get the app for smartphones and tablets. We may be doing this for a while. Join meetings by using the links provided.

We are working hard to provide other uplifting resources to help guide us through this crisis (see below). May God give you peace, patience, courage and surprise blessings during this time of trial. Let us know if you are struggling in any way, and how we can serve you.

QUARANTINE LETTERS: I’m grabbing the eQuill and ink and carrying on the long legacy of writing pastoral letters to God’s people facing uncertain times. I hope these letters keep our hearts and minds anchored in Christ and His Word. Please share them with others who might benefit. Read here
