Group Week of Hope Minneapolis, Minnesota 2020

When you think about Minneapolis, your mind may wander to cold nights and snowy months. But when summer rolls around, everything changes. People head to the lakes or go outside to enjoy the city’s wide range of entertainment and recreation options: world-class museums, breathtaking architecture, distinct international culinary flare, and the Mall of America—the largest shopping complex in the country, which also has its own indoor theme park.

But the city has its challenges too: people who are homeless, families that can barely pay the bills each month, homeowners that face fines for not cleaning up their yards or painting their garages, children at risk of falling into bad situations because of too much free time on their hands during the summer months.

When you join the Minneapolis Week of Hope team, you’ll have the chance to minister to the “least of these” that Jesus described in Matthew 25. They are the homeless and hungry living on the streets, the senior citizens in need of help with home care, the children who need help learning to read, the members of a small inner-city church who want to make a difference in their community but doesn’t have the resources to do it on their own.

We hope to see you in Minneapolis this summer!

Trips for ages 12+ and preteens 10+

Where

Uptown Minneapolis is a 10-15 minute drive from the facility, and has tons of local cafes, shops, and the beautiful Lake Calhoun, Lake Harriet, and Lake Nokomis.

Other favorites include the iconic “spoon and cherry” at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden (great for photo ops and it’s free!), followed by a trip to one of the best ice cream shops in Minnesota, Sebastian Joe’s.

The Mall of America is about 30 minutes away for shopping and playing at the amusement park, Nickelodeon Universe, located in the center of the mall.
