Youth Trip Fundraiser

Heather Schulte has worked with a local artist and Milo Schulte to design a new St. Drogo’s T-shirt. St. Drogo’s is the patron saint of coffee and the namesake for our “coffee shop gathering space” near the front entrance of the church. The shirts will be made by local print shop Gojos. A portion of every purchase will be used to help offset the cost of the trip for our youth to attend their learning and service trip to the Rosebud Indian Reservation at the beginning of the summer. T-shirts can be purchased HERE. Gifts can also be made to support the trip by sending a donation to the church office.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore Adventure

Please join us for another Habitat for Humanity ReStore Adventure March 23rd from 9:00 am - noon followed by lunch. We will clean, repair and stock donated items for resale. The sale proceeds will support the construction of houses for families in need of safe, affordable shelter. Wear closed toe shoes, and gloves. RSVP to Rok.

Cost is $25/person and will include the brew tour, a guided tasting, a flight and a full pour. This is a 21+ event.
