donnadempewolfThe Rev. Donna Dempewolf joined Living Spirit United Methodist Church on July 1, 2010 as the new Pastor. Living Spirit UMC is committed to serving all of God’s children by breaking barriers of race, class, ethnicity, and fear. The congregation is a culturally and racially diverse, inclusive community. It was formed by the joining together of the former Asbury UMC and Oakland UMC churches in 2009.

“I’m looking forward to meeting neighbors and friends in South Minneapolis. Our diversity is a gift from God, something we must simply celebrate,” said Dempewolf. “My life has been enriched by the people I’ve met along the way, especially those whose backgrounds differ from my own.”

Dempewolf is originally from Southeastern Minnesota, near Rochester, and has lived in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Boston, and Paris. After working for 3M Company for several years, she entered the ministry in 2005 and was ordained a full-elder in 2008. Living Spirit UMC is her second pastoral appointment. Her first was White Bear Lake UMC where she served for five years.

Living Spirit UMC is located at 4501 Bloomington Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55407. Sunday worship service is at 10:30 a.m. The church hosts a free community meal each Wednesday evening from 5:45 pm until 6:30 pm. All are welcome.
