You may hear “We Seek, We Serve, We Celebrate” a lot at Minnehaha. It’s part of our mission statement. So, as we plan our programming year, we ask ourselves what are we doing in each of these areas. How is Minnehaha helping people to do each of these things? Because seeking, serving, celebrating – these are all important aspects of our spiritual journey; these are all important aspects of growing a community.
We are thankful for our amazing Sunday School volunteers, who give their time each week to prepare lessons and lead the children & youth of Minnehaha in seeking. We are thankful for our wonderful music volunteers who engage our the children through music, and help them learn the power of connection and story as they prepare songs to share with us. We are thankful for Pastor Becky’s sermons, and all those people who put work into making our worship services a time for us to discover God.
We also are blessed here at Minnehaha to have opportunities to learn more about the world. To seek beyond our walls, and beyond our comfort zones. Through our Who Is My Neighbor ministry, we’ve learned more about the Somali immigrant community in Minneapolis. We’ve got to participate in breaking the fast during Ramadan, and to share stories, meals, and spend time together in community with our Somali neighbors. Next week, we’re excited to be offering a chance to join in with a tour at the Somali Museum of Minnesota – the only Somali museum in the world! Families are invited to join us for a tour at 2pm. The cost is $9/adult and $7/child or senior. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to Jenia at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 13th.
