Worship at the Falls
Our annual worship service at Minnehaha Falls Park this year will be on Sunday, August 3.  Join us at 10:30 as we gather for worship at the bandshell with St. James Episcopal and Lake Nokomis Lutheran.  Please also bring a picnic lunch and stay after the service for a great time of fellowship at the picnic tables behind the bandshell.  You can also get food at the Sea Salt Eatery located in the park. If you'd like to be part of a pick-up choir for the worship service, please come to the park an hour early, and bring a chair!

Summer Fun at Minnehaha UMC

Join us this summer – we’ll play, we’ll learn, we’ll grow…

Confirmation Camp (for Middle Schoolers):
July 29 – 31

An overnight program for youth who have completed fifth through ninth grade. Confirmands will travel to Lake Koronis Assembly Grounds to dig deep into faith, and into play. We will canoe, hike, swim, and more; most importantly we will grow together as a class.

Native American Speakers at Minnehaha

Recently, David Larson, a Dakota Elder, and Mi-zi-way Mi-gi-zi Desjarlait, a Red Lake Ojibwe, spoke at Minnehaha UMC about understanding and building relationships between Native Americans and our congregation, and about living as a Native American in the United States today.

Taizé Worship October - May

What is Taizé?

Spend a brief hour and renew your spirit with a worship service of music and meditation. Taizé Worship, based taizeon 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 in October after the summer break. Peace.
