Dear Hennepin Community:

The season of summer is upon us and we are beginning to see the beauty of God's Creation emerge all around us. We rejoice in these days.

Even in this season of greening and blooming we are reminded that life is fragile and that death is a part of this life. We learned this week of the death of Hennepin Church member Jean Simmons who had been in hospice only a short time. Jean died on June 4th and a service to celebrate her life will be held in the sanctuary on June 30, 2018 at 1:00pm.

Please keep Jean's family in your prayers as you go about these emerging summer days. May we all know the gift and treasure of life and celebrate with Jean's family her life-long and service-filled time upon this earth. 

In blessings and peace,

Sally Howell Johnson
