We restarted a weekly playgroup at Minnehaha in November. Children - ages five and under - are invited with their caregivers to come Thursday mornings from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. Come for the whole two hours, or drop in when you can - you are always welcome.
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.
