Hello!

"Greetings" from our Hopkins members, Don and Geri Seaberg! While vacationing at Causeway on Gull this past week, they stopped at Grace to say that they miss all of you but that their residence is attractive, friendly, provides outdoor and walking path opportunities, and has been Covid free.

Thank you Ann, for sharing this message!



Planning a meeting or event?

When planning a committee meeting at Grace, please check the date and time with Ann in the office to avoid conflicts and to get placed on the calendar. Don't forget to send a reminder to your group, so that no one misses a meeting. We are all getting back into the swing of having things on our calendars!

Reminder: All groups and gatherings are limited to the Fellowship Hall at this time. This room allows for safe distancing and provides good ventilation. This area is also part of the cleaning routine of our custodian. Everyone attending any activities indoors at Grace, must wear a mask at all times. This ensures the safety of everyone that enters our church(vaccinated or not).
Confirmation

Save the date! May 23rd is confirmation day. Please plan to attend, to pray over and welcome these young church members.

Welcome to Camp Minnesota!

Grace Kids, Teens and Families

It's time to think about registering for a summer camp experience. Camp Minnesota information can be found by clicking the link below. Check out all the amazing opportunities that the camp staff are planning for a safe camp experience.
Every year the Grace United Methodist Women (UMW) offer a scholarship to Grace children, youth and families who register to attend a Minnesota United Methodist Camp. The scholarship is named for Marnie Luce, mother of John Luce, who was a huge supporter of the camp experience.
Copies of the scholarship fund policy are available in the Grace office. Some of the guidelines are:
 * Scholarships are awarded on a first come basis in the amount of $50 per person.
 * Online applications for the scholarships are due to the UMW treasurer, Le Sears sears.litta@gmail.com by June 1, 2021.
 *A copy of the camp registration along with a copy of the $100 deposit is requested. Upon receipt, the dollar amount of the scholarship(s) will be made to you.
 * An "early bird store credit" is available through Camp Minnesota if you register by April 30th.

Our Bishop has turned the dial back to Orange. Woot!
We returned to in-person worship on January 31.
