How does God’s Love show up in the world?

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
— First Corithians 13:13

One of the most important responsibilities we at Hennepin Avenue UMC have is caring for each other. Care can take many forms but as a community of faith based on the teachings of Jesus, it must always be measured in love. Care is about the good and bad, the big and little, events that make up a human life. It means taking brave steps to ask for help when you need it, leaning on the community in times of sorrow and fear, getting perspective when you can’t see clearly, having an ally, or just a community to celebrate with! All of this is care.

You can use the links below to request prayers, contact the clergy about sensitive topics, and use the Change of Life links to notify us about any big life changes so we can keep our records up to date.

Please note this page is just for requesting pastoral care and notify the Clergy about major life changes that we can address prayerfully.

Celebrate Life Events

A community in Christ is a community that journeys with you through all stages of life: from being baptized into the faith, to celebrating the union of weddings, to commemorating a life’s end. The strength of a community built in love of Christ is our steadfastness to be with you, and you with us, for the whole journey no matter what.

Get Support

Support is one of the most important aspects of Care. We all need support in our daily lives and to tackle larger challenges and problems. Support comes in many forms - mental, emotional, spiritual, and material (financial). And sometimes it can mean the difference between getting up or staying down. It is that important.

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.
