Worship at Lake Harriet United Methodist Church

 
 
 

Onsite Worship

Online

Sundays at 9:00a
 
 

9:00a in-person and livestream worship. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED. NO COVID CAPACITY LIMIT. Masking is strongly encouraged (see note below)

 

While the mask mandate for the city of Minneapolis has been lifted, Lake Harriet UMC strongly encourages the wearing of masks in worship as a way to stand in solidarity with those who cannot be vaccinated, those who have health concerns that make them vulnerable, and with children who cannot yet be vaccinated. Wearing a mask is a simple thing we can do to love our neighbor and keep everyone healthy. The mask recommendation will continue to be evaluated throughout the summer monitoring COVID-19 cases, vaccination rates, and vaccination availability changes. The CDC strongly recommends those who have not been vaccinated to wear masks.

We want to affirm that online worship will not become any less important as we start to add in-person worship opportunities! Lake Harriet has a robust online worship service that will continue! John Wesley said, “The world is my parish” and we believe this is true. People from across the metro area and beyond the state of Minnesota participate in online worship either during the live stream, or later when it is more convenient for them. Online worship will likely be our largest worship service and we pray it will continue to grow. We celebrate what God has done and what we are learning through this experience.

Worshipping With Children

At Lake Harriet UMC, we embrace kids. Their sounds and presence remind us of the joy, spontaneity, and awesomeness of God. You spend enough time apart during your busy week; join us for worship as a family.
 

Babies & tots

Our nursery is professionally staffed and available for your child (6 months to 3 years). A beeper will notify you if your child could use your comfort. The Susanna Wesley room also provides space for families to take a break if needed. There you will have a visual of the Sanctuary through one-way glass and audio via speaker for the grown-ups, as well as the Children’s Library for kids.

Kids 3 years & up

Worship materials (books, bulletins, art supplies) are available as you enter the sanctuary. During the sermon, children have the option to accompany an adult leader to a kids’ space for a children’s message that relates to Sunday’s sermon topic. On Communion Sundays, we set this practice aside so we can all gather at God’s table together.
