Sexism Is A Big Reason A Former ‘Megachurch’ In Arden Hills Closed It Doors Easter Sunday Morning!
Reader a 'church is torn apart' and a woman is to blame', that's according to female pastor Mindy Bak. With financial problems and internal divisions have forced the closure of what was once a “megachurch” in Arden Hills to close it doors this past Easter Sunday. Comments on Facebook reveal church-goers were told that this past Sunday would be the last day of worship at North Heights Lutheran Church. The Star Tribune reports its congregation has dwindled from a massive 7,600 at the turn of the century – split between Arden Hills and a sister congregation in Roseville – to just a few hundred today.
The newspaper describes a “civil war” within the congregation that saw a breakaway group make claims of deception among church leaders on its “Church Torn Apart” website.
