Children, Youth & Family (CYF) Director Installed TODAY

After much prayer and discernment, the Church Council has approved contracting with Interserve Ministries to help us build a renewed foundation for Children, Youth and Family Ministry at Hosanna.  Tracie Peterson is being installed on Sunday, will be with us for a minimum of 6 months, working closely with Pastor Linda, the rest of the staff and each of you to build this vital ministry foundation.  Tracie has over 17 years of Children, Youth and Family ministry experience. With a BA in Psychology, she has worked with youth in many different arenas, from corrections to camping ministry. A MN native, Tracie has worked at congregations in MN, ND and the Seattle Area. She currently lives in Chaska, MN with her husband and 2 daughters.


That’s right! Hosanna is doing a NEW photo directory, working with Lifetouch Church Directories and Portraits. Dates for photo sessions are Tues-Wed-Thurs, Sept. 2, 3, 4 and Tues-Wed, Sept. 23 & 24 (2:20-9:00 pm each day). This will be a great opportunity and tool for new members, existing members and our new pastors so we want to make this a complete representation of our church family. Please be a part of it!  There will be NO SITTING FEE. Just for participating, you will receive a COMPLIMENTARY 8x10 portrait and a FREE church directory and Lifetouch promises there will be NO PRESSURE to order additional portraits. (However, with the holidays coming it might be a good time to think about having photos for greeting cards and gifts.) There will be 2 ways to sign up for your photo sitting: 1) Sign up at Hosanna after church  or 2) Schedule online at our homepage



And so is Hosanna’s fundraising project of cleaning the Coliseum each night. This service project generates revenue that is needed for Hosanna programs. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS PROJECT SUCCESSFUL.

Sign ups are available after church or simply fill in your name & contact info on the contact page.


The toys in Hosanna’s Nursery need to be cleaned in preparation for our fall programming. Can you help? Rick is looking for a few volunteers to help run them all through our dishwasher to make them sparking clean and sanitized. He estimates it should take just a couple hours to get the job done.  Please contact Rick Bahnemann to sign up  651-464-5502 x2010 or
