You have an opportunity to go on an amazing journey as we walk together to Jerusalem. We Walk in Beauty: Journey to Jerusalem is a program that exercises bodies and souls throughout Lent. The basic idea of this program is that, as a church, we try to log enough miles to take this imaginary walk from Minneapolis to Jerusalem in time for Easter. Miles can be “walked” through physical activity, prayer time, or Bible study time. Twenty minutes of an activity equals a mile. Please see the March Heartline newsletter for the full description. Sign up at church or Join the Facebook Event - RUMC Journey to Jerusalem. Everyone can help get us to Jerusalem this Lent.
Working with Beacon’s Families Moving Forward, our church is preparing to host homeless families during the week of April 6th-13th.
We will be welcoming up to 4 families to stay overnight in the upstairs Sunday school wing.
Please consider donating some of the much needed items to help make the families’ stay more comfortable and please consider the list of volunteer opportunities. You can help!
Drop off items in the Commons Area at church or in the church office. Please mark them for “FMF” (Families Moving Forward). If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please make the check out to Richfield UMC and write Families Moving Forward in the memo line. Thank you so much for your support of this ministry! Please contact Lee Ann Lehto firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
