IAM®20 Meditation Class: Learn an effective 20 minute meditation technique for busy people
IAM®20—Integrated Amrita Meditation®, was developed by Mata Amritananda Mayi, a world famous saint from India (www.amma.org ). In 20 minutes per day, IAM®20 promotes integration of body, mind, and spirit. Practitioners report feeling more relaxed and centered, and less reactive to stress. Many report improved health, including lowered blood pressure. According to an eight month follow-up study, regular practice of IAM® lowers levels of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. IAM®20 is a secular meditation which integrates easily into any spiritual or health support practice regimen.

New Classes for Adults!
Invitation to the Old Testament (short-term Disciple Bible study)
Whether you know the Bible front to back, tried reading and got bogged down somewhere in Exodus, or don't really know it at all, join us for this class on Monday nights, beginning Sept. 15. We'll meet from 6:30-8:00 through November 17.
Bible Stories for Adults
Do you know only the basic stories that we teach in Sunday School? Then join us Thursday mornings from 10-11 as we explore the entirety of some of the main Bible stories. We'll learn ALL about King David's life, explore what happens after Jonah is swallowed by a whale (and whether that was really a whale), etc. No reading is necessary in preparation, and we'll meet Sept. 18 through Nov. 20.
Support the Minnehaha Food Shelf
The Minnehaha Food Shelf has served more than 600 clients each month in 2014. (In May we served more than 35,000 lbs. of food to 828 clients!) Please remember the families who are in need of food with a donation of food or money. Thank you.
How can you give?
- Drop off dry goods in the donation barrel just inside the front door of the church
- Church hours: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (and most evenings you'll see people coming and going)
- Drop off or mail a check to Minnehaha UMC and note: "For Food Shelf"
The Food Shelf was featured in the Southside Pride. Read the full article here.
Visit Minnehaha United Methodist Church. We’re a church of faith, with (usually) two Sunday worship services—plus a Taizé service once a month. We’re a church of action, supporting the local Food Shelf, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels and more. We’re a church of neighbors, helping, supporting and sharing with each other. We’re a church of renewal, with music, prayer and even silence. Curious? Confused? Willing to take a risk? Click here to find out what a first visit would be like. Good things happen at Minnehaha. Pass it on.
Next Taizé Worship:
Friday, Nov. 14 @ 7PM
Spend a brief hour and renew your spirit with a worship service of music and meditation. Taizé Worship, based on the teachings of Brother Roger from Taizé France, uses music with "simple" melody lines and periods of silence to quiet the soul and renew the spirit. There is no sermon, just a brief reading and a few questions to consider.
Join Us on the Second Friday of each month (October through May). Peace.
