Welcome to Your homestead church Connecting page!

HOMESTEAD FAQ'S:


1. Do you meet on Sundays?

Yes, but not in-person. In response to recommendations from MDH and CDC, Homestead Church has paused all in-person gatherings until further notice.


2. How do you meet and how can I join in?

We will live stream each Sunday at 10am on our YouTube channel


For those that do not have regular access to the internet, we also have a conference call option available.  To conference call in to our services, dial (507) 299-1884 and enter conference code 345988 when prompted. This will allow you to participate in our service over the phone. 


Also, please see the weekly Bible readings, study guide, and prayer guide listed below. Do these pieces alone or with your family as part of your daily discipleship.


3. How are you helping the community?

Homestead Church seeks to be a community of love and compassion - and we are still capable of being in community with one another while practicing social distancing. Each of us should try to be hands and feet of Jesus during these difficult times.


4. What are your plans going forward?

We are closely following the guidelines of Bishop Ough, which has a phased plan for church gatherings. As of right now, this means that there are no in-person gatherings planned.


If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email.


With Love, 

Your Homestead Church Family
