Just Push Play : In-Person Worship Experience

Sunday, July 19 & Sunday, July 26 at 9 a.m.  

We have decided to continue Just Push Play through the end of July to help us further learn how we can best meet the worship and gathering needs of the Grace community while still prioritizing safety. On Sunday, July 12 we had 19 folks attending in-person with 91 views online. 

As we welcome those who join us the next two weeks in-person, please expect the following: 
  • After Pastor Jen provides a welcome prayer, we will “push play” on the recorded service that you can also still view from home. If your home is serving as a suitable worship space we invite you to continue to join us virtually.
  • People will enter and exit the building from the front door (under the canopy). 
  • There will be no coffee or fellowship time indoors before or after worship. 
  • The doors to the Fellowship Hall and the Sunday School hallway will be closed. 
  • The nursery will be closed, and there will be no Sunday School. Children will stay in worship with their families. 
  • Attendees will sit 6 feet from each family/couple/individual.
  • All in attendance are strongly encouraged to wear masks.

After Sunday, July 26 we will pause in-person worship gathering to again reevaluate what comes next. As we pray and plan for in-person gatherings your feedback would be appreciated. Please email Pastor Jen ( to share your responses to the following questions: 
  1. What is one thing that you miss most about in-person worship?
  2. Where are you seeing God right now?
  3. Have you been utilizing our online worship? If not, why?
  4. If a large gathering is not possible, would you be interested in a small group gathering?

“I am always open to your thoughts and concerns. I urge you to continue to be in prayer for our congregation and community in these uncertain times, knowing that God is in control and we cannot hold all of the answers.” --Pastor Jen

Lakes Area Food Shelf -
Board Update
Wayne Holtmeier serves on the Lakes Area Food Shelf Board as the Grace representative. He writes the following update:

A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers that have helped us continue to serve the food needs of the area residents during these very difficult times. God Bless You! We are anticipating an increase in families with food needs starting in August due to Federal unemployment check cessation and continued unemployment. A donation of just $1.00 buys $10.00 of food at retail cost. If you’d like to offer your support, donations can be mailed to: Lakes Area Food Shelf, P.O. Box 724, Nisswa, MN 56468. Thank you!

The Lakes Area Food Shelf has been serving the greater Pequot Lakes community for the last 29 years. The food shelf is open for grocery pick-up on Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon, and on the first/third Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. Follow the Lakes Area Food Shelf on Facebook for further updates.
