Grad Sunday Family Worship


May 21 • 9:40am

Meet in the Narthex

We have a lot of fun things planned for Worship on Sunday, May 21! All HAUMC kids will have an important role to play in this service! Please plan to arrive by 9:40am. The kids will be processing, so we'll need all kiddos on time and ready in the Narthex where they will be given percussion instruments to play as they process in! They'll be leading the Congregation in a song, have a special Time with Children led by one of our teens, and then engage with our four HAUMC high school graduates! We will be empowering children and youth to lead this service, and I can say with confidence, you won't want to miss it! 

Looking Ahead to Summer

Who else is ready for the beautiful Minnesota summer to emerge? When those temps get above 70 all I want to do is be outside... and I know that I am not the only one! Beginning in June we will be having Sunday School outside! We will continue our habit of having kids start out in worship with their parents and then after Time with Children we will take all of the Sunday School kiddos outside to the Ministry House Yard. Club 67 students are invited to join us as leaders! I am excited for Summer Sunday School outside, it will give our kids and teachers a chance to connect with one another on a deeper level each week as we spend time together as one big group!

Family Faith Formation

Schools around the Twin Cities will begin dismissing for the summer in just a few short weeks... and with that comes a change in the weekly family rhythms. It is easy to get lost in the busy (or boring) summer routines.

To help create space for faith formation during the summer, I recommend these Family Time Kits! It is a monthly subscription box that provides you with everything you need to lead your family through a new spiritual practice at home. You can cancel anytime, so you can order boxes to get you through June, July, and August until you begin a new rhythm in the fall. Click HERE and check it out!
