Sunday Morning Worship:
Just Push Play
Starting on Sunday, July 12 at 9 a.m.

Step one in reopening our Sanctuary for worship will be an experience that we are calling "Just Push Play". Starting on Sunday morning, July 12 at 9 a.m. folks are invited to watch the recorded worship together in the Grace Sanctuary. Pastor Jen will provide a welcome and then we will “push play” on the recorded service. This initial baby step will allow our staff and volunteers to evaluate the next steps towards in-person worship at Grace.
 
Attendees are asked to sit 6 ft from each family/couple/individual and are strongly encouraged to wear masks. There will be no coffee or fellowship time. 

We'll be distanced. We'll be masked.
But we will be together.
Finance Update
Please review the financial update through June. Feel free to contact the Finance Committee with any questions.
Grace Good News: Celebrating Hope with Minnesota Methodists
We want to share good news stories each week in the e-grace. Members and friends of Grace celebrating life's big and small joys! Today we celebrate the efforts of the Minnesota Annual Conference as they work to share hope across the state.

The theme of this summer's Annual Conference is "Be the Light: Live Hope!" and it centers around our gospel imperative to heal a broken world. We are all invited to be included in the conference worship this year. We're asked to share how Minnesota United Methodists are living hope in our communities. To participate, simply make a sign that says “I AM LIVING HOPE BY _______” and fill in the blank with a way that you are living hope in your context. (The photo is an example)

Here's how to participate:
  • Use a dark marker and large printing so that your sign will show up in the photo.
  • Don't write your name on the photo or sign.
  • Take the photo landscape (hold your phone the wide way).
  • Email your photos to Rachael Warner at raw.umc@gmail.com by July 19.
  • By sending a photo, you are agreeing to allow it to be used in online worship that will be shared publicly.
  • Be creative! Share hope!


If you have good news that you would like to share please contact Andrea Langhoff .
