Stay Safe MN & Grace

Stay Safe MN Update: Gov. Walz's new executive order strongly encourages face masks, prohibits gatherings of more than 10 people, and allows drive-in gatherings. Bishop Ough is still asking all congregations to suspend in-person worship and other gatherings through at least May 30 and to continue to focus on online worship while developing a detailed and phased plan to safely bring people together—initially no more than 10, and outdoors if possible. Minnesota United Methodist Conference leaders will meet Monday with Governor Walz’s staff and other judicatory leaders to start to develop a phased approach to re-opening churches in a safe and smart manner. Through weekly meetings, Grace leaders are also in the process of creating a phased plan for gathering together. Feedback and input is welcomed as we create this plan. Please email or call (715-470-3131) Andrea Langhoff to share suggestions and concerns.

Here is what Grace leaders have discussed so far:
  1. Worship online will continue! Due to the small number of people permitted to gather together and the cleaning that would be required between gatherings, we will continue to provide weekly worship online. While we pray and look forward to the day we are all back together we also celebrate how many folks are tuning-in to worship each week. Our data tracks views, not exact number of people watching. The Easter Sunday service has had 196 views which we can conservatively estimate to 300+ people watching. Our other Sunday services are averaging 94 views per Sunday. We invite you to celebrate these numbers with us.
  2. We are hoping to create opportunities for small groups to form and gather for fellowship, support, and also to help welcome Pastor Jen. In addition, we would also like to use our outdoor space to meet-up with each other. Stay tuned for more details about both small groups and outdoor gatherings.
  3. The church building is open for ministry teams and committees to meet. In order to use the building for a meeting we ask that you do the following:
  • Call the church office (218-568-5755) and reserve your meeting time and room. This will allow for us to safely monitor how many folks are in the building at one time and which spaces need extra cleaning.
  • Spray tables and chairs after your group has meet. There will be spray bottles, paper towel, and sanitizer placed throughout the building.
Farewell to the Likers
Pastor Gary's last Sunday with Grace is Sunday, June 14. Even though we won't be able to worship in-person with everyone yet, we will still come together as a church community to recognize them. The Staff Parish Relations Committee is inviting you to participate in a card shower. Please mail your cards to Grace UMC, P.O. Box 276, Pequot Lakes MN 56472.  Please write "PASTOR FAREWELL" on the outside of the envelope. This will be a flag to Ann Hutchings to hold these for their final worship service. If you want to include a monetary gift, make your check payable to Gary and Brenda Liker. In addition, we are looking at options for people to say good-bye in person, in a safe setting. Stay tuned for more information on that!
