These are extraordinarily difficult times. In times of crisis and uncertainty, peace is a precious commodity and no peace is more precious than the peace God gives us through His son. Our hope is to be a light in the darkness, a reservoir of His peace and a sanctuary where all people can come and experience encouragement, prayer, a quiet place to reflect and the unconditional love of Jesus.
Our mission at The Blessing House remains "Creating Spaces God to Work." In light of COVID-19, we have prepared our spaces to be a loving and protective barrier to sickness - to the best of our ability. So that you know what to expect, we wanted to share an overview of the changes we've made.
All that said, the Perfect love of Christ, casts out fear. So, be assured that we're honoring the health and safety guidelines but rest in the ultimate security of our Lord and Savior.
We want all our guests to feel confident when they return and have made some adjustments to the operations of The Blessing House as part of our commitment to the heath and safety of everyone who walks through the front door.
CAPACITY AND HOURS
For now, the number of visitors we are able to host at the Blessing House has been reduced to 15 and our new hours are Monday - Friday 9am - 7pm and Saturdays from 9am-4pm. We ask that you call ahead or go online to make a reservation. Michon or Judy will let you know what our availabilities are. We anticipate these restrictions on capacity and hours evolving as we move through the summer and into fall.
We have provided floor markers that allow for 6 feet of separation while guests are entering the house and throughout the main level. We have also rearranged the furniture inside and out so you don't have to.
We care deeply about your health and for this reason are requiring the use of face masks for staff and guests to help protect against the spread of germs. Please bring your mask when you come.
HEALTHY STAFF AND GUESTS
We will adhere to the state of Minnesota guidelines for screening our staff prior to work and continued monitoring of overall health / exposure.
When you make a reservation, the office will send you a document covering our Staying Safe Practices. You will be asked to read through, sign and return. We've done our best to make this quick and easy through the use of SignNow technology.
Guests have access to soap and water in the bathrooms and hand sanitizers have been placed throughout the house. Thank you J. Carver Distillery for your generous donation.
We remain committed to keeping the Blessing House both welcoming and clean. We've instituted new sanitizing regimens, including enhanced cleaning of high-touched surfaces throughout the day and a deep clean every evening upon close.
FOOD AND BEVERAGES
We are offering coffee and tea but ask that if you are planning a meal during your stay to bring your own food, paper products and utensils for serving.
We are all excited to welcome you. We remain honored to serve you and our Lord. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Peace and Grace In Christ,
The Blessing House Team
Who We Are.
The Blessing House is a unique home like community center dedicated to nurturing the spirit and body of all who enter. We are a non-profit, non-denominational Christian entity.
Our mission and vision are "Creating Spaces for God to Work...so all those that come can find the deeper truth of a Christ-centered life".
What takes place here depends on who God brings to our doors to be blessed. Individuals, groups and organizations fill the Blessing House with their activities, both sacred and secular. Our hope is that all our guests find a place of belonging, enriched conversation, authentic friendships and joy because of the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Thank you for your generous support of time, talent and/or treasure that allows us to fulfill our mission of "creating spaces for God to work."
