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.

Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for? (Audience) Why should they care? (Benefit) What do I want them to do here? (Call-to-Action)

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"
Our Bishop has turned the dial back to Orange. Woot!
We returned to in-person worship on January 31.
