  • Adult Catechism
    This ongoing video series led by Pastor Matt Flom is an opportunity for all to understand what we believe as Lutherans and how we worship. It is intended for those that did not grow up in the Lutheran church and as a refresher for those that did. Past topics have included Luther’s Small Catechism, Order of Worship, Holy Baptism, Using a Hymnal, The Lord’s Supper, Worship & Sabbath, and more.

    Each new session is live streamed on the St. Philip’s Facebook page Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Videos of all past sessions can also be viewed on Facebook under video. Feel free to watch a session at any time. Contact Pastor Matt Flom at MattF@splcmn.org or 763-571-1500 with questions or for more information.

  • Christian Yoga
    Have you ever wanted to try yoga but were too intimidated? Then this is the class for you. Appropriate for all levels, Christian Yoga at St. Philip’s is basic enough for anyone new to yoga and offers options to challenge those who are already familiar with yoga. Christian yoga is where our yoga practice and our faith intersect.

    Chair class is at 5:15 p.m.($5/class) and Mat class is at 6:15 p.m.($7/class) Mondays in Fellowship Hall. Participants will need comfortable clothing, a yoga mat (for the mat class) and bottled water if needed. Plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before class to sign in and settle into your space. Everyone is welcome!
