Welcome From Mission Covenant
Our mission is to follow Jesus, inviting our community and making new friends along the way.
We believe Jesus, who calls Himself the way, the truth and the life, the light of the world and the bread of life, and so we follow Him. That means we intend to pay close attention to the Bible, for it is in the words of the Bible that He is most reliably revealed. Following means both intending to obey Him and intending to stay close to Him.
As we follow Him, we invite the community around us to join in that walk, Of course we invite one and all to our worship services, and we offer courses and other ministries where we are always glad to see the great people of our area.
Our experience of following Jesus has meant that we are constantly encountering new people and being blessed by their friendship, so we commit to extending our hearts in friendship with to whomever the Lord leads us to.
What We Believe
Mission Covenant is a Christian church, which means we believe in Jesus Christ and try to follow the example of life He set for us. Jesus is God’s Son who came to earth to be our Savior through His life, death and resurrection. He died on the cross, taking our sin on Himself, accepting the punishment we deserve and setting us free.
God raised Jesus to new life, breaking the bonds of death and opening the way for us to inherit eternal life through our Savior. We are saved by God’s overflowing grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Pastor Mary Hendrickson serves as our Pastor. She has gone through a lot of relational and even physical challenges over my lifetime, and I know that it is through the Spirit of Christ and the love and caring of the people God sent into my life, that I have come through those times more deeply in love with Jesus than ever before. If you are lonely, discouraged, isolated, have questions about faith, or just need a listening ear, know that you are welcome at Mission Covenant.
● We began in 1886 as a Bible Study group, became a congregation and built our current building in 1889.
● We have always been a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church, which started in 1885. The ECC was a church in the beginning for Swedish-speaking immigrants. Swedish was the exclusive language of our group until the 30’s, and one service in Swedish was continued until the early 50’s.
● Like many local churches, we experienced decline in membership, although not in faith, until about five years ago, when we began to grow again
● Currently we are remodeling our facilities and looking forward to a very positive future.
