Upcoming Sermons & Worship Highlights

Late Summer & Fall 2016

Welcome to worship at Lake Harriet United Methodist Church!

Join us as we worship God at 10am each Sunday of the summer!

August Highlights:


August 28:  Our final chapter of the book “We Make the Road by Walking!”  We’ve made it through an entire year of sermon reflections and small group discussions, covering the overarching narrative of scripture that began with Genesis and ends with Revelation. It is also Blessing of the Backpacks & Children Sunday. We will have a special prayer to bless our children with or without their backpacks before they head off to school. We will also have a Back To School prayer board for students, teachers and parents.


Looking towards September…

September 4: Labor Day worship.  This is our last Sunday with one service at 10:00am!

September 11: Rally Day  Worship at 9:00am and 11:11am.  The 9:00am worship will feature the Sanctuary Choir and a brass quintet, and the Three Year Old Milestone Ministry  – “Welcome to Godly Play. The 11:11am worship will feature the Shout Band. There will be an Information Fair between services at 10:00am. Learn all about enrichment classes for all ages and register.

Sermon Series – Ordinary Heroes  (Stories of our faith ancestors) Begins September 11!
What makes someone a hero?  We usually think of heroes as people with special powers (like Superman or Wonder Woman), or special success (like Presidents or professional athletes) or special Godly status (like Abraham or Mary).  It can be easy to think that God uses only a handful of people to do amazing things. The reality?  God uses ordinary people, all of the time, to do extraordinary things.  Join us as we take a look at some of the ordinary, less known heroes of our faith who made a difference.  As we learn about heroes of our past, we will also celebrate the ordinary heroes among us now!

September 18: Our Ordinary Hero this Sunday is: Josiah, with a theme of: The importance of youthful leadership and wisdom. The 9:00am service will feature the Sanctuary Choir and the Dolce Wind Quintet.

September 25: Our Ordinary Hero is: Jethro, with a them of the importance of delegation. Our worship services will feature our Festival Bells.
