In like a lion, March comes roaring with high winds, sub-zero temps and grumpy grumbles from almost everyone forced out into the elements. But spring is in sight. Local churches have plenty to keep the mind and hands occupied till then.
Children’s ministry programming is coming to a seasonal end next month at First Evangelical Free Church, so students who haven’t checked it out yet might want to head over to 3058 10th Ave. N. before it’s too late.
Designed for ages kindergarten through sixth grade, The Dig is for boys and Girls of Grace is for… well, girls. The program runs September through April and kids meet at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.
At the same time, Collide welcomes junior and senior high school students for a youth ministry. Follow that ministry’s activities via an online blog site, http://collidestumin.wordpress.com.

For women who enjoy working with both, New Covenant Church welcomes newcomers and regulars to “Create.” Create is a ministry for women who want to spend a day scrapbooking, stamping, card-making and working on Pinterest projects. The next event is on Saturday, March 15, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Then on Sunday, aside from the church’s regular morning services at 8:30 and 10:45 a.m., New Covenant Church welcomes youth to its house party. This is a social gathering for seventh- through 12th-graders who want to grow closer to God and to each other. Kids are encouraged to bring a snack to share.
