It was an amazing night feeding 350-400 people at Harbor Light / Salvation Army. God was in the house and on the street! Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers, our Breakthrough staff, Tommy’s Malt Shop (who donated the hamburgers, buns, & ice cream), and Mike and Roxy Lynch with their “smoker”!
We were all truly blessed last Sunday at Breakthrough Ministries community meal & church service. We started with a bus full of guests, a pancake breakfast for dinner and a great message with Paster Timothy Fox who shared his testimony about his experience in heaven. Plus we where blessed the Kansas City Youth Orchestra for worship service. Praise God for their service!

Sunday evening’s service at the Historic Wesley in downtown Minneapolis was simply amazing. If you haven’t witnessed the beauty of this church, you must join us each Sunday evening. Partner with us in serving the community. Serving others is such a blessing; I can tell you that, but you need to experience the feeling first hand.
What a blessing it is to give to those who don’t have. Thank you lord!

A beloved friend of the Breakthrough family, Kevin Douglas Johnson died Monday morning. Please pray for his family and to all who will mourn his death. Kevin was a gentle, warm, and lovable soul who has been involved in the ministry of Breakthrough for many years. His presence will be greatly missed. He was a proud and enthusiastic member of our weekly Image Bearer gathering for a number of years as well as a graduate of our evangelical ministry training/outreach program. We will plan to conduct a short celebration of his life in the coming weeks during our Sunday evening worship service. We will post that information soon on our website.
“It’s a full house with Breakthrough Ministries. Great crowd enjoying chicken, potatoes, corn, salad and dessert. Praise God. ” – Steve R, Breakthrough
“Last night this faith club representing 9 churches gathered at Breakthrough to serve the homeless. We went out on the streets in downtown Minneapolis to pray with people and invite them to our meal. We also had another 22 volunteers join us as well – 40 volunteers who helped serve the meal. We had so many homeless guests show up that we had to squeeze extra tables into the dining hall. Our worship service led by Jon Russell was simply amazing – Janie Lalor preached about the mercy seat. Jesus poured love all over us tonight. Thank you all who served tonight.” – David E, Breakthrough Ministries
“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” Matthew 28:6
The best part of our year is celebrating the defeat of death by Jesus’ rising from the dead! Praise God for what He has done for us! What a glorious day it was from the beautiful weather to our 39 volunteers who came out to serve those who needed a blessing for the day. Joy overfilled our church on Sunday night.
Happy Easter, for He has in deed risen!
Last night was so great at Breakthrough. I was able to share the gospel with one of our guests after she had questions about the daily bread booklets one of our volunteers handed out. It was amazing to she her eyes shine, when she told me those stories answered questions she has had for years. Also, I want to give a huge shout out to Andrea A., a Minneapolis College of Art and Design, student who started a GoFundMe account to raise money for feminine products for the homeless. Her donation is extremely appreciated and allows us to jump start the Needs Closet’s part in our Tuesday Outreach. As an MCAD alum, I know how demanding the homework schedule is and to take time to think of others is super encouraging to me! Such a blessing!
