A Note from the New Guy

My name is Rick Belbutoski, and I'm the new Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at Hennepin Avenue. My family and I are overjoyed to call Hennepin our new church home, and we're so appreciative of how warm a welcome we've received, as we've been settling into our new lives in the Twin Cities.

I'm excited for the new chapter of ministry we'll share together. As I get started, I ask for your prayer and patience, as we seek God's guidance for how to build a great community for youth! Below is some info about a couple upcoming events for you to know about.

If you have questions about anything below, or anything youth or young adult in general, please let me know. Give me a call at 612-435-1301 or email me at Rick@haumc.org. I look forward to getting to know you soon!

Grace and Peace,

First Annual Hennepin Avenue UMC Youth Mini-Golf Invitational
August 18, 12noon-4pm

Fore! The First Annual Hennepin Ave. Youth Mini-Golf Invitational will take place on Aug. 18 from 12noon to 4pm. The afternoon will include fun and fellowship as we play a round of mini-golf at the Walker Art Center's Skyline Mini Golf course. Post-putting, we'll gather back at HAUMC for ice cream and to celebrate the afternoon's Champion. All students entering grade 8-12 are encouraged to participate and bring friends!

No need to register--just show up at Hennepin with $10 cash to pay for your round of mini golf. Contact Rick Belbutoski, Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministries, with questions: rick@haumc.org.
