The purpose of the Garden Coffee is twofold: first, to host a Minnesota woman serving in foreign ministry and have her share part of her life with us, and second, to kick off our annual support for Project Life!

Join with hundreds of Minnesota women and girls this July to worship, network, and hear from one of our own Minnesota missionaries, while also having the opportunity to invest into missions.

 2016 Garden Coffee Recap:

It was a delightful, sunny Saturday morning as over 300 women from all across Minnesota came to worship, fellowship, hear from guest speakers, and invest into the ministry of Project Life.

We had the privilege of being lead in worship by Stephanie MacDonald, Worship Associate with Cedar Valley Church, and hearing a powerful message by Minnesota missionary, Olivia Puccini.

After serving eight years as a missionary to Armenia, Olivia’s family moved to Tallinn, Estonia to plant a church in the most non-religious country in the world! In September 2014, Focus church began and Olivia continues to serve as a church leader and music pastor. Olivia lives in Tallinn with her husband, Nick, her two children (Oliver – age 12; Ava- age 8), a great dog named Rue, a Soviet upright piano, and her love of writing. Connect to Olivia’s blog.
