We desire for young adults to Belong to community, Believe in Jesus personally and Become disciple-making followers of Christ.

Pastor Andrew Berggren

The Canvas is a community of young adults in the career world who wholeheartedly follow Jesus. We exist to see young adults become everything God intends for them to be.

Held at First Assembly, the Canvas meets every other Thursday evening for a time of community, uplifting worship and relevant biblical teaching. Meetings take place from 7:00 – 8:15 PM at 3401 25th Street South, Fargo ND 58104. (Enter at door 10.) We’d love to connect with you there!

For this season, our every-other Thursday meetings land on the following dates:

  • April 19
  • May 3, 17, & 31

“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV)

What I Envision


We see the Canvas as a place to become. A community of people who love one another. Who cheer for each other. Who bear one another’s burdens (Culture of Connection). We see a safe place to try and fail, and try again. We picture the Canvas as a place to believe again. To hope again. To enjoy the journey. To celebrate successes. To get excited. To believe for someone who is not yet able to believe for them self (Culture of Honor). To pray with confidence and to leave a legacy. We see young adults reading and relying on the Word of God (Culture of Biblical Values). Worshiping wholeheartedly. Engaging as Spirit-filled, Spirit-led men and women of influence. We picture a healthy place where visions are valued and creativity is encouraged. Where teamwork is the name of the game and compassion moves us to action (Culture of Encouragement). We envision young adults placing real faith in a real God. We see invitation extended, joy restored and purpose unfolding. We see the Canvas as your place to become.

Canvas small groups

Canvas Small Groups Spring 2018 
Small Groups are an invitational community of people doing life together as they study God’s Word, offer prayer and make Christ-following disciples who make disciples.

This season, we have opportunities for guys’ groups, girls’ groups and a married couples’ group that meet on weeknights (Monday – Thursday) at 7:00 PM on the off-weeks of Canvas.

Small groups are a fantastic way to develop as a believer and form great, lasting friendships. E-mail a leader today to get connected!
