At St. Michael's we believe that getting to know each other and having fun together helps build a deep sense of community that is vital to our well-being as individuals and the health of the congregation.
Summer Patio Series
To that end we offer a variety of activities designed for adults.
Yoga Devotion for Women
Women of all ages gather twice a week at St. Michael's to stretch at Yoga Devotion, which provides a chance for renewal of body, mind and spirit during an often fast-paced week of activities.
Women's Annual Retreat
Each year women enjoy a winter weekend getaway for rest, renewal, and fun! There is always time for various outdoor activities and a great deal of food and fellowship.
Women's Christmas Buffet and Program
The first Monday in December, women of all ages come together to celebrate the holiday season with delicious food, cheerful carols and a special guest(s). In the past we have hosted comedians, musical trios and choirs, artists and the like.
Men's Annual Wild Game Dinner
We gather in November or December for dinner of wild game. The meat and fish are provided by and cooked by members of the congregation using tried and true special recipes passed down through generations. The universal commentary is, "I have never had wild game that tastes this good!" And we can guarantee no one goes away hungry.
Each summer members of the congregation gather at Como Golf Course on Tuesday evenings to play nine holes of golf. The group is made up of men and women of all abilities. Our motto is we enjoy the exercise, the fellowship and if we end up with a good score that's a bonus.
Summer Bike Trip
In August we head south to the Lanesboro area to enjoy a few days of riding bikes on the Root River Trail and enjoying the delicious pie at various shops along the path. It also provides for great exercise and plenty of time to enjoy conversation. We end the day at the motel which has a pool and hot tub.
Dinner groups are formed based on when participants
want to meet and if they would prefer to eat out or in one another's
homes. Groups are created in January and each group determines how
often it will meet throughout the year.
During the summer, women of all ages gather together on restaurant patios across the Twin Cities to discuss a book and share life with one another. Small groups meet on Wednesday or Sunday evenings at various locations, sometimes in homes of small group members.
