Whatever you are interested in, Mizpah has something for you! And if you don't see your interest reflected here, feel free to start a new group--everyone is encouraged to pursue their interests in community with others.
Mizpah's choir consistently receives praise from Mizpah members. The choir was honored to be invited to sing at this year's Minnesota UCC Conference. We care deeply about making beautiful sounds that will inspire you, and we have an amazing amount of fun while doing it!
Join us for practice every Wednesday evening from 7-9pm.
We are a group of people who love drums and drumming. We gather to play djembe drums for fun, community, health and healing. We welcome anyone, from beginners to advanced who share our passion and have a desire to drum. Our group is called a facilitated drum circle, meaning we provide some limited instruction and direction to help people get started on the rhythm pathways. Then we jam together, playing what we have learned.
On some occasions, we may make appearances and play at Mizpah, parks, community events, and outdoors when weather provides.
Join us Mondays at 7pm in the Mizpah Fellowship Hall.
People know that at its core, Christianity has something good to offer humanity. At the same time, many have a sense that they are alone in being a "thinking" Christian and that "salvaging" Christianity is a hopeless task. We offer a safe environment where people have permission to ask the questions they've always wanted to ask but have been afraid to voice for fear of being thought a heretic.
We are convinced that Christianity still has relevance in the 21st Century. We will help you explore the future of Christianity for YOU and what a meaningful faith can look like in today's world.
Mizpah recently installed a large movie screen in our basement fellowship hall, and are looking forward to using it to share movies with each other of social relevance or shared interests.
