Worship at Minnehaha United Methodist Church

"Congregations are places where we welcome people in without judgment, nurture faith, and participate in the world all around us," says Rev. Becky Sechrist. "I want to encourage everyone to recognize the grace offered by God, and to understand and then live out their lives as they are called by God. I also think it is important for people to understand their connections as a community, to listen to where God is calling them as a group, and to help them make strategic choices about how they can be the best at what and where God is calling them."

Sunday Worship Services

We celebrate with one worship service each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. (10:00 a.m. during the summer, from June through August), with a message of God's love and guidance for living out that love.

SUMMER WORSHIP @ 10:00 a.m. – Outside on the south lawn (weather permitting)

Pipe organ, choir, familiar and new hymns, and a thought-provoking message.

Taizé Worship

7:00 p.m. on the third Friday of each month
(October through May)

A service of music and meditation and periods of silence to quiet the soul and renew the spirit. Spend a brief hour and renew your spirit with a service of music and meditation. Taizé Worship, based on the teachings of Brother Roger from Taizé France, uses music with “simple” melody lines and periods of silence to quiet the soul and renew the spirit. There is no sermon, just a brief reading and a few questions to consider.

The sanctuary is set with candles and images of various Christian faiths. Music is led by Minnehaha Church musicians and often includes string instruments and a cantor.

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on the third Friday of each month, October through May, and partake of this moving worship opportunity.
