Upcoming Opportunities

Moxie Matters Tour with Jen Hatmaker & Nichole Nordeman

Tuesday, February 20 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. (Doors Open at 6:00 p.m.)

Incarnation purchased a block of 50 tickets for the Moxie Matters Tour stop at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church in Minneapolis. Here is the description from the Moxie Matters Tour site: In this intimate evening experience with Jen and Nichole, you will laugh. Make new friends. Swap stories. Share struggles. Breathe. Listen. Own your mess. Stand with one another. Silence the voices of regret. Recognize that every part of your journey—every broken place—is leading to a bigger, more beautiful story. You will remember you are not alone. You have all the spirit you need for living a courageous, grace-filled life—grace for every mistake and weakness.  

Cost: $28 per ticket. You must pay for your ticket to reserve your spot. Sign up in the Incarnation Office. You may participate in a carpool or meet the group there. Questions? Contact Becky Benson at bbenson@incarnationmn.org.
