Healing the Heart of Our City Community Prayer
July 27, 5:30pm at
912 W Broadway Avenue

On Thursday, July 30 at 5:30pm, members from Hennepin are invited to join together at the community prayer tent at 912 W Broadway Avenue in North Minneapolis. This has been the site of a 30-day, multi-faith prayer ritual called "Healing the Heart of Our City."

As part of Hennepin's ongoing commitment to becoming an anti-racist congregation, each individual will be encouraged to pray or meditate in a socially distanced way for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time George Floyd's neck was restrained by police. The theme of the prayer is "Prayer for a New Future." To learn more, click here.  We look forward to seeing you there.
