Youth have been very busy at Minnehaha, here are some photos of what we have been up to. For example, the Youth helped to serve food for Rally Sunday:
Youth also ran the Dunk Tank at Rally Sunday:
They helped serve Enchiladas with Rick Anderson to raise money for MinneHarvest.
They took a trip to Feed My Starving Children and packed enough food to feed 37 children for a whole year.
They spent an evening making and packaging sandwiches for the homeless.
Three Confirmands became new members of the church. Yay!
And we took a great trip to the High Ropes Course at Mall of America to have some fun!
