What We Learned Last Sunday

We started our ‘Emoji Prayers’ lessons and this week was the surprised-face! We learned about how we can praise and be amazed by God in our prayers. God was so creative when making earth and God is still creative and surprises us today. Check out this caregiver handout for ways to continue your child’s faith formation at home. 

Coming Up this Sunday

Kiddos participate and experience by staying in the service this week. They are also welcome to take on a leadership role in the worship service such as serving communion, being an acolyte, singing in the children’s choir or leading a reading/prayer. Reach out to Mayme anytime (mayme@haumc.org) if you have a kiddo who’d like to lead!

Hennepin Kids For Lyfe Pool Party!

Sunday, July 21 • 3-6pm

Hennepin Kids families are invited to Jerry Gale's pool on Sunday, July 21 from 3-6pm. Stop by when it's convenient for you. Jerry will supply hamburgers, chicken burgers, veggie burgers, and water to drink. We'll start eating at around 4:30. Please bring: 

  • A side dish to share. Snacks for around the pool are considered a side dish. Overachiever? You can bring a side dish and a dessert!
  • A swimsuit/towel (if you plan to swim)
  • An alternative beverage (if desired)

Please RSVP to Mayme (mayme@haumc.org) and she'll give you Gerry's address. We’d love to spend the afternoon with you, so if you can make it, great! If you can't make it, we’ll miss you, but we understand that summer is a busy time and conflicts are unavoidable.
