Living Right – “I must be living right!” You may have spoken those words in the middle of a very good day. What does it mean to “live right”? Peter lays it out for us: “As servants of God, live as free people…honor everyone…” (1 Peter 2:16-17 NSRV) Those who are involved in Lord of Life’s Stephen Ministry do just that. They serve God and respect others by providing Christian care. Is this a way you want to serve the Lord? If so, please contact Deb Bergstrom, (701)678-4053, or Lolly Kalinoski, (218)829-8207 or You can also check out the Stephen Ministry web page at

If you have never attended a Bible study, women’s group, or faith discussion of any kind before–no problem. This is a great place to ask questions or simply listen.
