REACHING OUR COMMUNITY'S CHILDREN
We invite you to two (2) of our initial planning meetings for our work with The Matthew Initiative. 

These first two meetings will be around our scope of work, continuing to discern how we will reach the children of our community.

Please join us THIS Sunday, June 3rd and later in the month on the 24th, 2pm at Grace. Questions? Please contact Pastor Stacey (pastor at graceonponce.org).

WORSHIP AND COMMUNION FOR PEACE ON THE KOREAN PENINSULA
Recognizing the changing circumstances surrounding the planned-but-now-canceled summit between the US and North Korea, GBGM will host a worship service with communion on Wednesday, June 9th at 12noon in the Grace UMC sanctuary. We will gather in hopeful prayer for lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.

All are welcome to join us, in person or in spirit, during this half-hour service, one of many to be held worldwide the first full week in June. The UMC and GBGM have long joined with the Korean Methodist Church, the National Council of Churches in Korea, the World Council of Churches, and others in efforts aimed at permanent peace, reconciliation, and reunification in Korea.

Please share the word of this service and join us for this time of prayer together. We will broadcast the service via Facebook Live.
DAY CAMPS: GROW SPIRITUALLY, SOCIALLY, INDIVIDUALLY
You can find a day camp for just about anything. What about one focused on forming faith and friendships?

Grow Day Camps puts 90+ years of experience into creating an environment where every moment - whether in morning chapel or 20 feet up a tree - is about practicing faith in Christian community.

Grow is setting up camp at Grace UMC the week of July 2-6! Learn more and register your rising 1st-6th grader at growdaycamps.org.
