Minnekirken will be hosting a free concert on the fourth Sunday of every month at 1pm (after coffee hour).  Due to the current Covid protocols, we will require proof of vaccination at the door.  We will also be collecting canned and dry good food donations for Logan Square Mutual Aid.  The table for the donations will be at the door.
We hope the concerts will draw members and friends of Minnekirken, our Logan Square neighbors, and supporters of the musicians.
