Blessed be the name of the Lord! Here at CAN we give glory to God for the opportunity to teach and to be taught by God’s children. We have a team of dedicated and faithful teachers who are excited to share their faith and to tell their students about the good news of Jesus Christ. Throughout the year our teachers commit their time and energy to many activities including Vacation Bible School, All Saints Eve Celebration, and our annual Christmas Program. Praise God that every year seems to get better and better! We encourage our families to make their home a place where children learn to love, forgive, respect, and serve one another, for there is no better place to sow those seeds. We want church to be a safe place and a fun place where children can experience the love of God. We pray these experiences will lead our children to follow Jesus all their days, serve Christ’s church, and share the good news with the world.
Our mission is to:
provide a safe place where our youth are free to be themselves as God created them
nurture a personal relationship with Jesus through prayer, discipleship, and Bible study
develop spiritual intimacy among brothers and sisters in Christ
encourage a constructive relationship with family based on the lordship of Christ and the guidance of the Holy Spirit
inspire our youth to be leaders for the sake of God’s kingdom
Church of All Nations has a special heart for campus ministry, to minister to young Christians who are often separated from family, navigating complex relationships, reconstructing identity and discerning God’s unique call in their lives. We minister to undergraduate students from all campuses in the Twin Cities area, but feel especially blessed to be only a few miles from Bethel University and Northwestern College.
YA+ is a ministry primarily for young adults (singles and couples) but is open to all. We are a community that seeks to trust and advocate for one another as we deepen in relationship, maturity and faith. We are a group of people that love being with one another, value relationships and community over individualism and isolation, and genuinely share life together. We meet one or two Saturday(s) a month for fellowship activities. We eat together, hang out, discuss important philosophical and theological matters (jk.. but really we do), and mainly enjoy and spend time together.
We invite couples to gather for Christian fellowship, learning and natural growth, to mutually strengthen our relationships by offering our diverse backgrounds and experiences to each other as a gift. Couples in any phase of relationship are welcome, and of every background and generation. We also encourage ourselves to be transparent so that God may heal more fully, and that we may love each other and show grace just as we are.
Our cell groups are small groups of people who meet twice per month at church or in each other’s homes. Together we grow in faith, hope and love through Bible study, prayer, sharing and ministering to each other and to the greater community. Ongoing support is provided for the cell group leaders so they can better serve.
