Minnehaha Academy Upper Campus
Give to Minnehaha Academy's Rebuilding Fund Here
A gas explosion on August 2nd changed many lives and families, but also deepened a greater dependence on the Lord within Minnehaha's community. Founded in 1913, Minnehaha Academy is owned by the Covenant Northwest Conference. The Upper Campus (high school) has relocated to Mendota Heights, and there is a campaign to help with the rebuilding of the school at their original location.

Learn more about the International Justice Mission (IJM) here
On September 24, 2017 during Worship and Spiritual Growth Hour, the issues of human slavery and trafficking were highlighted.

Handouts are available here and here.
