Are you looking for new a program or ministry that will connect you more closely with your community? A ministry that is so unique that it has proven that it could also revitalize and energize members of your congregation? A ministry that can be implemented for under $2,000?

You are invited to learn about this developing ministry that provides a special way to connect with your community. We call it the “Bread Oven Ministry” and it was initiated seven years ago at White Bear Lake UMC.
