Meet our CYF DIRECTOR, Katrina Hagemeyer. I recently graduated from UMD and currently live in Duluth.  This area is so much fun because there are so many activities to do in all of the seasons.  I love hiking, paddle boarding, fishing, swimming, and much more.  I also love reading, sitting by fires, and relaxing with family and friends. Sharing the Lord’s word and His love is my passion, and I am so excited to start my time here and get to know the youth and families that make up Hope United Methodist Church. Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself: I can’t wait to meet people!
