Trunk or Treat: Be a Volunteer
October 31 • Noon to 2pm
Hennepin Avenue UMC is hosting a community-wide event and we need your help to host it! Trunk or Treat returns to Hennepin Avenue UMC on Sunday, October 31st from noon to 2pm!

Children are invited to wear their costumes to church, and the Hennepin community plus volunteers are invited to stay after service for lunch, a pumpkin decorating contest, and other fun activities before Trunk or Treat kicks off at noon. Invite your friends!

Hennepin members are also invited to bring pumpkins from home to participate in "The Best Jack O' Lantern" contest, which will be voted on by the families who attend Trunk or Treat. The best jack o' lantern and the best-decorated trunk will win a prize, as will some of our guests from the event. Kids will also enjoy face painting and a fun inflatable to play on!

Bible Sunday?

This year's confirmation class will be offered in person and online at 9 am on Sunday mornings beginning September 12. The classes will be held in the Longfellow Room and students who do not wish to participate in person can do so on Zoom. It's not too late to join the confirmation class, email Rick@haumc.org for more details.

This week, confirmation students will be tackling the question "What Does the Bible Offer?" We're going to creatively dive into some of the Bible's stories, draw comparisons to the media we consume regularly, and celebrate the gift of new Bibles being given to our students by the United Methodist Woman.
