Koinonia - All Voices Matter! 
Important discussions regarding whether or not HAUMC should sell Koinonia Retreat Center were held on April 28 and May 5. There were many compelling discussion points on both sides of this question. 
On Sunday, June 2, we will vote on this important decision. Please plan to attend the Church Conference at 11:30am in the Sanctuary. Child care will be provided. (Only HAUMC members are allowed to vote.)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact John Roberts.

Celebrate Pastor Nate
and all Volunteers

June 9 is Pastor Nate's final Sunday at Hennepin.  We will give thanks for his ministry over the past 5 years, and send him off to Richfield UMC with our heart-felt thanks and blessings.  

On this day, we will also celebrate all of the amazing volunteers whose time and commitment help all ministry to happen throughout Hennepin, and this includes our AMAZING TEACHERS!  If you have taught in Hennepin Kids this year, please come so that we may recognize your amazing work on this day!

Bring in your empty plastic Easter eggs. We will use them next year for our Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt!

Halloween Costumes!

Bring a Puppet to Life
Missa Gaia/Earth Mass on June 1 and June 2 will feature puppets from Heart of the Beast Puppet & Mask Theater-- and we need a few more adults and youth to bring them to life! This opportunity includes working with Master Puppeteer Laurie who will orient each participant to their character and lead them through their part.   We would also like to have 5 young folks to play the role of twinkling stars to accompany our moon puppet!  The puppet team will meet on Friday evening (6pm, May 31) for training, and then participate in our dress rehearsal on Saturday, June 1 (10am), and our performances on Saturday, June 1 at 7pm and in worship on June 2 at 10am. No experience necessary for any of these roles! Please contact Mark Squire via email: mark.squire@haumc.org.

Missa Gaia/Earth Mass
