Having completed a great fundraiser in the last year through the provision of God's blessing, we are embarking on a new fundraiser called 20/20 Vision. We are in the middle of two fundraisers which will aim for raising $100,000.00 in the next few months for our new church building. We are building a brick wall in the front of the church through the donations of people in our church fellowship. Antelope Hills is also in the midst of a letter campaign reaching out to people and churches across the states that might be willing to help with contributions to help us build our new church building. Join us in this new endeavor.

AHCC has a 20/20 Vision of raising $200,000 in order to pour concrete in June of 2020. Would you like to help? Donations can be mailed to Antelope Hills Christian Church, 2075 280th Avenue, Canby Minnesota 56220.

This is a painting done by Grace Vanderbush of the proposed church building ... the fellowship at Antelope Hills desires to build with the help of many people giving and sacrificing to create a place of worship and service to our Great and Loving Savior. We are appealing to God to bless this place as we seek to give honor to Him. None of this would have been possible without the Almighty God walking alongside us through provision and blessing. We cannot truly express our massive gratitude to God for opening doors and making this building of a new church possible. We also say "Thank You" to all from near and far who have given financially and in service to make this possible.

These are the plans for the inside of the new church composed and drawn up by Darren Matthies through the work of the Design Committee and the Building Committee.

We realize the we can never build a church capable or worthy of truly honoring the Almighty and Living who created the heavens and earth, but we pray that we as a church fellowship and individually will live humbly before him as we follow His Word and serve Him with our lives.

This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Could you build me a temple as good as that? Could you build me such a resting place? My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the Lord, have spoken! “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word. Isaiah 66:1-5 NLT

For over eight years, Antelope Hills Christian Church has been giving away furniture to anyone in need in the local communities. Hundreds of pieces of furniture, appliances, medical equipment and household furnishings have been given away in the past few years. What started humbly in our church parsonage has expanded into rental space at the CAMA/Connection building in the town of Canby. Donations are accepted from the communities and passed along through advertising on social media and through local agencies. More information about this vital and growing ministry or about volunteering to help or serve with us is available by contacting Pastor Steve at pastorsteve116@yahoo.com or by calling the church.

It was a great evening at our Beef Stew Supper fundraiser along with the Silent Auction which was held on September 12th at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church. A huge "Thank You" to Our Saviour's Lutheran Church for graciously granting us the use of their church facilities and to Bruce and Juli Wornson who were the chefs. Special Thanks as well to Danielle Frazeur who was the coordinator of the event, Renee Frazeur and Jane Goplen who managed the Auction and all the many helpers, preparation, decorating, and serving crews from church who made this event a great evening and a great success. Many thanks also to many individuals in the community and in our church family for your generous support in donating prizes, attending the auction and for your bidding on the items in the auction.

We had an absolutely great VBS. Wonderful and dedicated staff and helpers, enthusiastic kids and fantastic moments of fun and growing in faith in Jesus. Jesus rescues us whenever we are shipwrecked by life, worry, trouble and lack of power. A big Thank You to all who helped make Shipwrecked 2019 so powerful. It was an incredible adventure of skits, singing, stories, games, missions, cookies and just plain fun at VBS 2019. Photos of 2019 VBS, courtesy of Carrie Cleveland.

Antelope Hills Church Rummage Sale Number 2 was held on Saturday, June 29 in Dawson. This followed a Rummage Sale in Canby earlier. A huge thank-you to Renee Frazeur for organizing these rummage sales this summer. Thanks to all, who donated and those that helped before, during and after the sales.
All funds raised will go to the AHCC New Building Fund!!

Join us after church services for a some food, fun and fellowship on the nicest day of the year, this Sunday May 26th. A good chance to enjoy the fellowship of the Antelope Hills Church family. Remember our worship services start at 9:30 for the summer starting May 26th.

Every year, Antelope Hills Christian Church joins the churches around the world in remembering the Persecuted Church around the world. This year our day of reflection and prayer was on Sunday November 11, 2018. Sharon and Troy shared thoughts on the people and churches in Iraq and India. There were also some insights into the situation in Pakistan and a powerful video presentation on Pakistan. Please remember the Persecuted Church in your prayers and get involved in some way to help them. Various opportunities are listed at https://www.persecution.com/IDOP/ and https://www.opendoorsusa.org/ The video can be seen at https://www.persecution.com/IDOP/


WE started this fundraiser last winter in February/March and we are on our way with the Envelope Money Raiser for our new church building. Our goal is $100,000 dollars.  The envelopes start in the single digits and go up to $300 as of now. As of August 6, 2018, we have raised around $46,000.00. Way to go, everyone. Grab an envelope and put it in the offering! Out of towners, we welcome all donations, large and small. Thanks to all, who have given to make this a successful endeavor to get into our new building to serve our Lord and Savior in new ways!


With the help of God moving in people's hearts, we completed this fundraiser as of February 1st, 2019 with well over $100,000.00 raised and all the envelopes taken and filled ... thanks to everyone from the church and friends and family from near and far, who gave as well.

Thanks to Delroy, Wes and Jim for their work on getting the church sign up and solidified with concrete!

Thanks to Rebecca Shepherd for making our new sign for our "Furniture Ministry" space at the Connection Building in Canby. It looks good and the general public will be able to know the location of the furniture in a more recognizable way.



A great day on the Laq Qui Parle River. Young and not so young, all had a great day! Thanks to Adrian for helping organize this day on the river. A reflection on the day, follows the pictures.

Thanks to all who helped out with our New Church Garage Sale on June 16th - 7:00 to 1:30. Over $600.00 was raised to go into our Building Fund Campaign. A great big hand to Renee Frazeur for organizing the sale and working hard to make it a big success!

Fun Maker Factory VBS was a great success. Thanks to all who helped along the way and throughout the busy week. May we all remember the themes and give ourselves to be build our lives up in Christ as well.  


Join us for our VBS 2018 at the Fun Maker Factory!


On Sunday May 20, a good group gathered to pray over the new church site and building site. May it be the first of many gatherings!


A Big Thank-You 

to all the helpers who came out and helped cleanup the new church property for grass seeding.



The Church Body of Believers at Antelope Hills are reading through the New Testament in 2018. We are reading 5 Chapters a week which should take around 5 minutes or so a day and then taking time to reflect each day or on the weekend. Join us on this adventure in reading God's Word together. Reflections on the readings from the week are shared during our Sunday Services by people from the congregation. We feel this reading of the Word together will be blessed by the Holy Spirit in a unifying way that we might together serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you would like to be part of the 5X5 Reading plan, please pick up a schedule at the church or click on the link below to access the downloadable 5X5 Bible reading plan at the Navigators website. Thanks

This is long overdue ... but many thanks to the men and women of Antelope Hills Church for all they do outside the walls of the church. You are volunteering in school groups and functions, coaching, civic groups, blood drives, Meals on Wheels! I am thankful to all of you and all the different places you serve!

I would like to say a big thank you to Barb for playing for me all these years at Sylvan Court, Marvin for helping out and for Nancy who has helped out in the summer at Sylvan.

As a church body along with some other members of the community and some other pastors along the way we have spent hundreds of hours fixing, remodeling, cleaning, organizing, building, planning and working at the CAMA/Connection Building as we moved from the old Connection building and remodeled the new one.  The creative blackboard wall and the Lite Bright wall just below are two of the coolest things we built working at the CAMA/Connection building with Betsy Schmitt's (Connection Manager) ideas to make a blackboard area and use the old garage door from the new Connection building. Thanks to all the AHCC movers, cleaners, food providers, workers and painters for your help ... Lisa, Adriane, Cheyenne, Stuart, Dale S., Dale P., Jim S., Betty, Marcella, Mary Anne, Charlotte, Emily, Delroy, Greg and Zach C. and myself. Will put up some more pictures from the CAMA/Connection in the next few weeks. Antelope Hills rents part of the CAMA/Connection building for our Furniture Ministry.  Thanks to all who have helped me out delivering or loading furniture with the Furniture Ministry as well Jim T., Darren, Wes, Reed, Stuart, Grant, Dale S., Mary Anne, Dale P., Emily, Toby and Delroy and many others. Also thanks to all those who helped with the Van carpet redo ... Jim S., Kent, Delroy, Marvin and Dale S. and Jane for giving us some snacks along the way.
