Grounding in our Faith with Pastor Laura:


A couple of nights ago I got home from an evening meeting, and it was time to put my son to bed. I came into the living room, scooped him up, and carried him to the bedroom trying to speed through all the steps to get him ready for bed. I wrestled him into his pajamas as he tried to play the xylophone and search for the comb he had hidden in the bed that morning.


After all the tasks were done I set up the nightlight he got for Christmas that we had not used yet. I put him into bed, turned off the light, and flipped the switch to the nightlight. Suddenly, the ceiling was dancing with a light projection that looked like a galaxy and tiny pinpricks of light dotted the room that looked like stars.


Lil Dude froze and looked at the ceiling and started to say “wow” repeatedly. It was like the night sky came to his bedroom that night. The wonder of the moment disrupted my rush to get through the task and I climbed into bed and snuggled with him as we sat in the sacredness of the moment.


I have been reading a book* on the erosion of the ability to focus or think deeply.  The pace of the world and the role of technology over time is hurting our ability to rest and be present in the world around us. In our haste to keep up with life, we lose out on moments to be present and see beauty in the simple things.


This Sunday our children and youth will be in worship and we will experience Communion together.



Worship is an opportunity to resist the “noise” of our busy life and simply rest. It is the children and youth that may be the first ones to point us toward wonder. Amazingly, the organ can produce a sound that you can almost feel in your body. There is wonder in a group of people gathering together to eat and drink deeply of the grace of God. And there is wonder in a child experiencing something for the first time that causes us to pause and revel in the beauty of creation.


It is a blessing to journey with you all in this adventure of wonder and grace.


Pastor Laura

Annual Meeting and Church Conference Recap


We had a full report of the year's membership events and worship attendance numbers, which also included our digital community. We heard ministry team reports from: The Dignity Center, The United Women in Faith, Housing, Old School by Steeple People, and Trustees.


We look to the future exciting things from Streamlined governance and the Convergence project (more on those below).


You can find the link to the PDF of the annual report booklet HERE


You can expect this meeting in the future, and we will be making sure we get all the reports we need for the Annual conference also available in the booklet to increase our transparency. Transparency is key to clarity of vision!

Marty Shimko speaks to the congregation about the budget in the Sanctuary.

2024 Budget Passes


After celebrating that it appears that 2023 will close with a balanced budget, the congregation passed a resolution supporting 2024’s ministry needs of $2,955,608. 


These ministries will be funded by those who completed estimates of giving and by taking funds from dedicated accounts, as contributions do not cover all the expenses. We ask everyone to remain faithful in their support of the ministry opportunities which God has placed before us.

Streamlined Governance Meetings

Feb 4 at 11:15am

and/ or Feb 17 at 10am

In The Sanctuary


Lay Leaders have been looking at a streamlined governance idea for our great church and we want your thoughts.


Please gather with us in the Sanctuary at 11:15 on Sunday, February 4, and again on Saturday, February 17 at 10 a.m. (with donuts and coffee!). You are encouraged to attend and discuss this exciting approach. The presentations will be the same on both days.


If you have questions in advance, please contact Marla Tipping (Connections) at marlatipping59@gmail.com.

Convergence Letter and Survey available now!


On Jan 28th we heard from Bill Tipping where he briefly outlined the Convergence Project, and I quote, "I'm excited, and I rarely get excited." For those who know Bill, that is probably an understatement!


On January 30 we sent out letters to our congregation explaining the project.


**If you do not receive this letter in the coming weeks but would like to be included on our members and constituents list, please contact celeste@haumc.org or thor@haumc.org so that they can update your membership information.


You can also find a PDF letter HERE


You can find a link to the survey HERE


We ask that each member of your household (teens included) take the survey for themselves. We want to hear each person’s unique perspective.  


If you have multiple survey takers in your household, please close your browser window after one person takes the survey, and open an incognito or in-private window for the next person. This will avoid getting a message that the survey has already been completed.


For those who may be uncomfortable with online surveys, we have printed versions available at reception. You can also reach out to them at reception@haumc.org to request a paper version be mailed to you.

At Hennepin Avenue UMC, our vision is to grow deeper in our love of God and neighbor, to welcome all people, and to heal a broken world. This week we begin the new Sermon Series called Active Faith to explore more fully what this means as we show up. in faith, in this world, now.


How do we put faith into practice in a changing world? By discovering and rediscovering together what that means.

Faith Development

Join the monthly virtual book club every third Thursday for a year of reading banned books.

Monthly Virtual Book Club

Febuary 15 | 7pm | On Zoom


The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison


Starting in February, The Monthly Virtual Book Club is kicking off 2024 with a year of reading Banned Books.


Fittingly for Black History Month, they will begin with reading Toni Morrison's groundbreaking novel, The Bluest Eye.


Toni Morrison’s acclaimed first novel, published in 1970, follows Pecola Breedlove—an 11-year-old Black girl living in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children has a devastating effect on those who do not conform to narrow and artificial standards.


She prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning, and the tragedy of its fulfillment.


A National Bestseller and a Parade Best Book of All Time. From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner—a powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity that asks difficult questions about race, class, and gender with the author's characteristic subtly and grace.


If you enjoy reading, please join the Hennepin Avenue UMC community for an hour-long discussion via Zoom about this book!


The books can be read online through local libraries or inexpensive websites like thriftbooks.com.

The death of a loved one, whether it be a spouse, a child, a sibling, or a close friend, can be the source of great pain or depression.

Friday Morning Men's Bible Class

Every Friday from 7:30-8:30am

Longfellow Room / Zoom


As we follow a book that leads us through the Bible, we have interesting conversations about what these passages of scripture mean to us. It is one of the few venues you can find where conservatives and liberals share their thoughts and spiritual insights and listen respectfully to one another. By honestly sharing our thoughts and spiritual experiences, we expand our own understandings as well as gain insight into the rich variety of experiences in other men's spiritual journeys.


Every Friday morning there is stimulating conversation, good coffee, and delicious pastries.


All are welcome. Contact Phil Graczyk, (612)-435-1331 or philip@haumc.org for the Zoom link.

Hope for Creation in a Climate-Changed World is canceled for this week January 28th

Thursday Morning Bible Study Resumes!

Thursdays | 11am

Longfellow Room and Zoom


Thursday morning Bible Study class has begun their winter study The Parables of Paul by J. Ellsworth Kalas.


In this six-week study, class members will discover the apostle Paul's compelling way of sharing Jesus' message with others through the use of the metaphor which makes things clear by giving us a picture. Paul's letters are full of these word pictures. From casting himself in the role of a slave, to presenting the Christian as a soldier or an actor, even showing how we are vessels in the King’s house, Paul's gallery of enriching, life-changing story pictures help us visualize the Christian life so that we may live our faith more fully.


Mary Mensheha and Juanita Reed-Boniface will facilitate the weekly sessions, at 11am in the Longfellow Room. Join us in person or on Zoom.

Reflection

11:30am after worship

Harrison Room or Dossal Alcove

Look for room changes as new options are explored.


Reflection is an opportunity to set aside some time for deepening personal faith and to learn about the faith experiences of others. What started as an experiment initiated by George Rodgers Adams ("Rodge") in June has become a wonderful new way to explore faith at HAUMC!


Each week we will pose a question for an informal, open-forum discussion. Anyone is welcome to join at any time. No former knowledge is needed, just bring your curiosity and an inquiring mind.


Anyone is welcome to join at any time. No former knowledge is needed, just bring your curiosity and an inquiring mind.


This Sunday's question is: "How do you react to the possibility that your current faith might change?”


Look out for signs as the group tries out other locations. If you have any questions you can ask reception on Sunday mornings or email Rodge Adams at rodgea@comcast.net for more information.


It is a standing gathering so feel free to drop by any Sunday as your schedule allows.

Open Yoga with Leslie Ball!

Saturdays | 11am | Church of Youth

Please arrive between 10:45-10:55am

Years ago we offered regular in-person yoga classes at HAUMC until the pandemic moved us to an online format.



After receiving many requests, we are so thrilled to say we can resume Saturday morning Yoga Practice!


Class information:

  • Our students range from teenagers to 90 years old. You do NOT need any prior experience; we welcome newcomers!

For those who don't know Leslie:

For twelve years I’ve been leading Open Yoga, a restorative yoga program incorporating spirituality and recovery into a holistic practice. Open Yoga is an outgrowth of my training at United Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity), and at New York University (Master of Fine Arts), along with my decades of grateful recovery in the 12-step community. I remain forever thankful for my most immediate teachers: the students in our Open Yoga classes.


Any questions? I’d love to hear from you; please email me at leslie@leslieball.com

Director of Family Ministry Update


Two weeks ago, a group consisting of clergy, staff, parents, volunteers, and representatives from the Staff Parish Relations Committee interviewed candidates for the Director of Family Ministry role. After a lot of good conversation and discernment about the program's needs and the candidates' skills and gifts, the team decided to not go forward with any of the finalists.


The plan is to repost the position and do further networking to exhaust other avenues that may yield qualified candidates.


In the interim Kelsey Johnson and Ryan Hackey have stepped up to provide more volunteer support on Sunday mornings for Sunday School. I am so thankful for the depth of leadership and passion for the faith formation of our children, and I want to thank all the Sunday School volunteers who are stepping up in this season of transition.


The Confirmation Program in the interim will continue to be shepherded by me. I am thankful for the added support from Jan and Ariel from Good Samaritan UMC and Lake Harriet UMC as we finish up the program year. The Confirmands are planning a service project, and please be on the lookout for ways to support their project in March and April.


While this season of being in transition continues, I look to all the adults in this church to continue to pray and give their time to support this program.

One thing we are looking for in the next Family Ministry Director is someone who can mobilize people to make this program successful. If you have a good idea for an event or offering for either children or youth, please reach out to me. I would love to discuss the idea and if it is in alignment with the program and how I can support you in forming a team to make your idea a reality.

An Update on Choir Attire


A team of choir members, friends invested in music ministry, and staff have begun considering future choir attire. The current robes consisting of a teal cassock and white cotta (or surplice) are several decades old and wearing out. The team is meeting to have honest and open conversations about Hennepin's culture and liturgical tradition, the choir’s expression and role in worship, as well as accessibility, inclusivity, and mobility. We are also doing research into various attire options, including cost, and considering the approaches of sister congregations.


With the choir’s input, we hope to make a decision to have the new attire in place in the fall. We invite you to pray for the choir attire team as we seek to serve Hennepin’s music ministry faithfully: Liz Buckingham, Glenna Dibrell, Irene Imai, Sally Messner, Chris Meyer, Joanna Paetznick, Krista Riedel, Mike Schmidt, and Phyllis Waggoner.


For the rest of the winter and the spring, the choir will wear the current robes on many Sundays. Sometimes we will wear black, particularly when leading alongside guest musicians, or wear something else to lift up the theme of the service. For one Sunday each in March, April, and May, we will not have a “uniform” as we invite others to join us for a community sing—a pick-up choir like the one that sings on summer Sundays. Watch for a future Hennepin Happenings article on how to come and sing with us!


Sally Messner, Director of Worship and Music

There will be no brunch on January 28th. Instead, there will be a Pie Fest following the Church Conference.

Memorial Flowers
