Official Website of the Minnesota State Conference of the Churches of God
Our purpose is to co-ordinate and assist the members of the conference in worship, training, edification and evangelism.
One way this is accomplished is through the gathering of our members for conferences. The vision of a place for our members to meet was realized with the establishment of the Long Lake Bible Camp. Twice a year we gather together to worship together, learn together and join together making lifelong friendships.
We also conduct summer camps to teach the youth of today the message of the gospel. Two week long camps, one week for Jr Campers and one week for Sr campers, help youth with Biblical solutions to everyday Christian living. The unique island campground also provide opportunities for friendship and recreation with other Christian youth.
These conferences and camps bring many into a relationship with God and his son Jesus that last a lifetime. Through the people of the Minnesota State Conference’s mission department, many here in Minnesota and throughout the world have been influenced for Christ and his coming kingdom. This is the primary focus of our efforts here at the conference and in our lives.

Have you ever dealt with someone who’s ego was so large that they couldn’t fit their head through the door? Yeah, I have too, and they do not make it easy to enjoy their company (to put it likely). Wouldn’t it be so great to tell that person “the world doesn’t revolve around you!” or “you’re no better than the rest of us you know!”. There seems to be something in us that cringes at the idea of acting bigger than we really are.

Notice how he says:
knowledge doesn't equal experience
with practice you can succeed
distractions can throw you back into the old ways of thinking
once you truly learn a new way, going back to the old way is difficult

If we look at Romans 6:6-14:
How do we know that Jesus really is the Messiah that God sent to save the world? Can we trust that this Jesus guy is any different that the self-proclaimed Messiahs from before and after his time? Should we devote our lives to this man Jesus?
Some scientists were tracking Golden Winged Warblers in the Appalachian mountains. See a picture below.
What is interesting is that right after they finished their seasonal migration, they left!
Scientists were confused, until a series of storms swept through the area which lead to a tornado outbreak. Checking the geolocation trackers on the birds later, they flew a bit over 930 miles to get just South of the Tornado's path, then came straight home again.
This immediately brought to mind:
Reading the Bible daily is a habit we know is important, so why is consistency so difficult? Find a Bible reading plan to help you get in God’s word regularly.

Do you want to be an encourager? It’s something we all want to do, but knowing how to encourage others can be tough. And if you’re anything like me, sometimes I simply forget. Having a ready-to-go kit like this can help you to brighten someones day, lift their spirits, and remind them of God’s truth in their life.
You went to the classes. Listened to the messages. Sang the songs. And somewhere in the midst of it all, God reached in and tweaked something inside you. You heard Him.
Maybe it was like a lightning bolt to your heart. Maybe it was a tiny seed that He planted and is barely beginning to sprout. It could be a cloudy something that has been in your mind for months, only now it is crystal clear.
