Teenagers in Grades 8-12 are invited to participate in a multi-faceted ministry at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church. You're encouraged to join Youth Director Rick Belbutoski and other adult leaders for a variety of ministries, events, and ways to serve your neighbor in the name of Jesus Christ.
Hello Hennepin Youth and families,

Even though it feels sometimes like not much has changed recently, there are a couple exciting new things to keep in mind. First, you can join in the weekly Youth Break time on Wednesdays. There's more information below about how you can take advantage of an extra time to check in mid week. 

Second, I want to encourage you to save the date for the first week in August. I've been working for several weeks now on a local mission opportunity that will bring youth from all over the Twin Cities to do justice work. More info is coming next week, and I'm excited for this opportunity to serve our city as we continue to seek the best path forward on issues of equity. 

Grace and Peace, 

Take a Break on Wednesday's at 3:30 pm

School weeks are hard for so many reasons, and it's hard to do life separated from community. Starting Wednesday January 27th, Rick is inviting youth to drop in for a zoom call to talk about whatever is needed. Homework, relationships, parents, whatever a youth need is why this call exists. This call will help carry youth through the week with a little extra encouragement and a chance to see their friends' faces. 

Being Anti-Racist: Read, Learn, Act, Impact:
A Reading & Discussion Group for Parents
Weekly on Sundays at 7:30pm on Zoom

Join a group of parents, grandparents, and other adults on Sunday evenings at 7:30 p.m. We discuss great books, learn through conversation, and support each other as we take action steps to be anti-racist within our daily lives. All while trying to have an impact on the kids we love.

No need to RSVP or to attend each week. To receive the Zoom link and what reading we are on, please email realm@haumc.org to be added to the Realm group.

Camp Minnesota!

Camp Minnesota
Registration is open for the 2021 camping season! Check out the sessions at the Camp Minnesota website and pick your favorite location: Northern Pines, Koronis Ministries, or Kowakan Adventures.

Registration and all information for the 2021 camping season will be digital and available on our website. With the potential for changes to schedules and events leading up to summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Dakotas and Minnesota Camp & Retreat Ministry team chose to forgo the traditional printed camp brochure this year. Instead, all camp listings and registration information are on the Camp Minnesota website where details will be updated quickly, and changes made in real-time. This ensures you will always have the most up-to-date information.

The early bird incentive, bring-a-friend discount, and camperships are all still available. 

Youth Night Meetings will continue on Zoom

This week's youth night meeting will start at 5 pm Sunday for conversation and games!
