John 16:12-15
 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”

Prayer:
Come, my Light, and illumine my darkness.
Come, my Life, and revive me from death.
Come, Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of my sins, kindling my heart with the flame of thy love.
Come, my King, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there.
For thou alone art my King and my Lord.
Amen

June Missions

June 12th, is "Peace with Justice Sunday". Here is what this means.
United Methodists relate to this special Sunday by seeking peaceful solutions, creating and supporting peace-related ministries in their conference and learning about peaceful, just efforts around the world. Our Social Principles call us to love our enemies, seek justice, and serve as reconcilers of conflict. We insist that the first moral duty of all nations is to work together to resolve by peaceful means every dispute that arises between or among them.
The United Methodist Church, with its historic commitment to peace and justice, can and should provide leadership to this social transformation. The General Board of Church and Society Church holds a non-governmental, consultative status with the United Nations. This status allows us to participate in UN meetings, consultations and conferences. We recognize and renew our call for social transformation, for the quest to open the doors of opportunity for all, to distribute resources more equitably, and to provide better care for persons in need.
Donations for this special Sunday support programs and ministries to educate, equip and mobilize actions in support of identified Economic, Health, and Gender Justice Priorities. Each Annual Conference has a Peace with Justice Coordinator developing local social justice ministries. Fifty percent of the offering remains in your annual conference to support this ministry.\
We achieve peace with justice efforts by working with the World Council of Churches, interfaith and ecumenical bodies, and secular organizations for social-justice policies and programs that seek the wholeness of shalom for all of God’s people. Your gift, joined with the gifts of others makes a significant impact in the lives of individuals and communities.

For the rest of June, missional giving will go to the Youth Group for gatherings, and to a charity of their choosing.
*If you are giving a special "missional gift", please make a note on your offering.
UMW
Grace leaders along with our UMW are pleased to bring you a very special worship experience on June 26th.
On Sunday June 26th during our 9am worship service, we will welcome a professional “storyteller” who will portray Susannah Wesley. Her story will highlight how her faith influenced her sons, John and Charles Wesley. This should be a fun way to learn about another piece of our Methodist history! We will celebrate with cake together after the service in the Fellowship Hall.
UMW members and friends please watch for more details as we get closer to the end of June.
Details coming soon...

Save your plastic and brown paper bags please!
If you have something that should be added to this newsletter from your group or mission, please speak with Pastor Jen or email the details to her at pastorjen@tds.net. The E-Grace is generally completed by noon on Thursdays, so articles need to be given to me by Thursday morning at the very latest.

If you wish to connect with me directly and it is not an emergency, please know that I will respond as needed during pretty regular office hours. I am in the church most weekdays from at least 10-1. Ann has my detailed schedule and can find me if needed.
