Read article from SunThisWeek and Dakota County Tribune HERE

When did YOU first attend a service or event at St John’s or Lighthouse?

Maybe it was back when our name was still St John’s Lutheran or more recently as we are a non-denominational congregation called Lighthouse. We are grateful for our humble beginnings by a group of German speaking of Lutheran immigrates who gathered to worship in Eagan, MN in 1888. There have been many milestones over the past 130 years…

Through the years there has been babies born and lives crossing over into their heavily home, baptisms, child dedications, confirmations, weddings, LifeLine, Celebration Athletic Games, Alpha, AWANA, our Leprechaun Days Block Party, Explorer’s Child Center, etc … people coming and people going. We have experienced growth and challenges, times of plenty and times of need… and persevered. We have worshipped with a choir accompanied by an organ and band with drums and guitars. People have made friendships here. Many pastors have shepherded this flock through the years and we continue to pass on our Christian faith from generation to generation. Through it all the Lord has been faithful!And YOU have played a part in our history, so that’s why we are inviting YOU to celebrate with us on Sunday, October 14th.

Consider joining us for our 10am service on October 14th
as we will celebrate with special songs, memories, guests from the past and a message from Pastor Bill titled: Where have we Been and Where are we Going? FREE donuts and bagels will be provided at 9:30am.

Then from 3-6pm we will have a REUNION PARTY!
This party will be under our big tent and will include food, fun for kids, music by former worship leaders ;Peder Eide and Josh Edwards along with archives to view from over the years and our vision for the future.This will be a great time for those who have had their lives touched by the Lord over the years to come back and eat and gather with friends. Let’s celebrate God’s faithfulness together!
