New Classes for Adults!
Predictions of the Messiah
The Monday night Bible Study will start again in December for a short, 3-week look at the various predictions in the Old Testament of the coming Messiah. We’ll read from some of the prophets, hearing their predictions of a young woman who will give birth, of the Son of Man who will make everything right, of one who is coming who will turn the Hebrew people back to God. We’ll hear their message in song, we’ll see how the writers of the gospel interpreted these ancient words, and we’ll look at the words in the context of their own time and place. Join us Monday nights, December 1, 8, and 15 beginning at 6:30.
Birth Stories of Jesus
Come to a one-time class on Thursday, December 11 from 10-11:30 a.m. to hear how the different gospel writers recorded Jesus’ birth and why there are similarities and differences.
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)

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, Dec. 12 @ 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.
