Life is right under your nose.

We spend lots of time and energy trying to escape the mundane moments of life. From waiting in line to catching a virus, you feel like you’re missing out unless it’s fun, flashy, or feels good. 
But as we read the Biblical Book of James, we discover that we were created for the ordinary moments that we often try to escape. That 99% of life that isn’t fireworks turns out to have meaning afterall, because that’s when God forms us and shapes us.
Surprise Church invites you to listen to James and Embrace the Ordinary. March 2023.

You have a story to tell…

99% of Christians never write and share their faith story. Most people don’t even realize that they are in the middle of an exciting life story that God empowers us to write. We’ll show you how to see yourself as part of God’s big story, and to tell your story in a way that impact people for generations.
Surprise Church invites you to meet the Author of life, who not only promises to guide our story to a happy ending, but also offers to hand you the pen so that you can help to write the next chapter!
You’re invited to Meet the Author, January 2023!

Don’t give up just yet.

You wish you could find your soul mate.
You wish you could get a promotion.
You wish you could make the team.
We say “you wish” to people who are supposed to give up their false hope. But according to God, our greatest longings, hopes and dreams aren’t meant to be abandoned.
This December, Surprise Church invites you to meet a God who loves to meet our deepest needs. As we get reacquainted with this God, we’ll band together to grant the wishes of one local family in need in partnership with Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center. Click here to support this family!
You’re invited to You Wish, starting December 2022.

Money can’t buy happiness…

or can it?

We can’t “buy” joy like a new set of snow tires, but it does come from following God with our finances.
Instead of the debt and stress that comes from impulsive consumption, we can feel the glee of giving, the strength of saving, and the peace of intentional spending when we follow a prayer based budget. We will give you the tools to do it!
We have a special surprise for each person during this series, but we won’t spoil it here. We’ll save the fun for Sundays, starting November 6. Visit Surprise >>
Evict your fears.
Fear can “move in” and run our lives.
Fear of failure.
Fear of death.
Fear of being alone.
Jesus said that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed–which is barely visible to the naked eye–we could move mountains. That’s right… mountains!
Apparently, even tiny faith can move the immovable, from the mountains that stand in our way to the monsters that hold us in fear.
Surprise Church invites you to learn three important steps to moving monsters and overcoming fear. Join us for Moving Monsters, starting October 16.

The why behind worship.

Aside from a karaoke bar or rock concert, people rarely get together and sing, despite the fact that our voices are built-in instruments designed to praise the God who made us. We lift our voices to call out to our Creator, savor His goodness, unite with other believers, and share him with the world. Discover Why We Sing this September at Surprise Church!
