Sanctuary’s 4th Annual Tour de North has been canceled out of to an abundance of caution due to potential severe weather.
Our leadership team has been watching the forecast throughout the weekend. Although it’s an absolutely beautiful Saturday night in Minneapolis, we can’t deny the potential for severe weather.
From the National Weather Service: “Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 11am. Some storms could be severe, with large hail and damaging winds. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 82. East southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.”
This is a huge disappointment for us, because we were so excited to have a shared experience exploring the story of North Minneapolis on the streets, on bikes, in vehicles and in the parks and public spaces of our community. So, now we’re moving on to Plan B.
Plan B is to gather at our regular time of 10am on Sunday morning at North High School. We’ll have a brief time of worship and share some of the presentations you would have experienced on Tour de North.
There will be no Royal Hood and no potluck picnic as previously planned.
Thanks for your understanding. We hope to see you Sunday.

Tour de North is an annual event hosted by Sanctuary Covenant Church that encourages our congregation to engage with, explore the assets of, and hear the stories of North Minneapolis community.
We recognize that Sanctuary is a regional church with a church family that extends far beyond North Minneapolis. The north-side is our home though. Now, and down the road. It’s a vibrant and diverse community that too often experiences a mischaracterization of the people that live here.
At Tour de North, we come together at North High, and then venture out on bikes, on foot, or in vehicles on designated routes throughout our corner of the city.
This year, on Tour de North, you’ll travel to checkpoints and hear stories that reflect the way North Minneapolis is changing and being changed.
We’ll end this year’s Tour de North at North Mississippi Regional Park where we’ll have an all-church potluck picnic.
