May 2-9 – Bless MN Week: Go Beyond Nice!
This next week, starting with the National Day of Prayer Gathering at the State Capital on Thursday, May 2nd, will launch the “Bless Minnesota – Go Beyond Nice” week! Pastor Greg Pagh from Christ Church in Otsego, continues, after many years, to lead the call to get Christians in Minnesota to pray and bless everyone in our state. The emphasis this week is on going beyond a superficial “Minnesota Nice” and even just praying for our neighbors and communities, to taking action steps to lift up and serve them. Just think what it would be like if thousands of Christians were mobilized to both pray for and tangibly serve the communities around them! Please take a minute to watch this short video to find out more info about this week and some inspiring, tangible ideas for what you can do. And PLEASE TAKE PART!
