If things work out the way Satya Balroop would like them to, Farmington may soon be a center of Hindu culture in Minnesota.
Balroop is the treasurer of a group called Minnesota Hindu Milan Mandir, which has been in the city for nearly a year now, housed in a building that for many years was home to Farmington Lutheran Church.
Farmington’s First Presbyterian Church has a new pastor, only she’s not actually new to the church.
Sound confusing? Not really. See, Rev. Jean Greenwood started her pastoral career in Farmington, and now, she’s come back to guide the congregation again.
Usually when a church talks about doing mission work, it is making plans to go out into the community and help people who are in need. This weekend, though, St. Michael’s Catholic Church is looking inward.
Richard Raschke believes there are some good lessons in the Gospel that don’t get nearly enough attention.
For the past 24 years, he’s been trying to fix that, and over the course of several weeks in November and December he’s bringing his message to Farmington.
Farmington Lutheran Church will welcome fall and any interested community members Saturday with an old-fashioned hootenanny.
The church’s fourth annual Holy Hoot will start at 11 a.m. and wrap up with a 5 p.m. worship service.
Two local churches are teaming up to bring a week of Bible-centered fun and education to Farmington-area parks thisweek.
Bible Baptist Church and Crossroads Church will sponsor the weeklong 5-Day Club, a series of activities put on every summer by a national group called Child Evangelism Fellowship. The group focuses on different cities around the country each year to provide their free camps.
Castle Rock Valley Cemetery is a peaceful place on a sunny spring afternoon. The rows of stone monuments are arranged on a low hill surrounded by farm fields, the grass neatly trimmed and greenery dots a landscaped area at the property’s entrance.
It’s picturesque, but the group that manages the cemetery’s operations are increasingly worried about how long they can keep it that way.
