 Grace Financial Giving:
Thank you to all those who have mailed in their giving checks. We gratefully appreciate it!
Note: At this time we are exploring online giving. Until that is set up, offerings can be mailed to Grace UMC at P.O. 276, Pequot Lakes, MN 56472.

A note from the desk of Pastor Gary:
 
The Tuesday morning Pastor’s Bible Study has resumed, although we now study together via email. I reference the scripture readings for the week, pose a question or questions, and give some of my thoughts. The people on the email list then respond with questions and thoughts of their own. I think it’s working out well! Anyone who would like to join us is welcome to do so! Just let me know and I will add you to the list. You can email me at pastorgary@tds.net .
 
Blessings…Pastor Gary

Conference Compassion Campaign
A message from the Minnesota Annual Conference: Thanks to the creative efforts of clergy, worship, and outreach teams, church members are gathering around computer screens, mobile phones and tablets, and radios, and in parking lots. The sharing of ideas, resources, and encouragement across the Minnesota Conference has fueled a spirit of collaboration and possibility in this uncharted territory we are navigating amid COVID-19. But we know ministry goes beyond worship. United Methodists across Minnesota are seeking to be the hands and feet of Christ in their communities. To help us rally that spirit of compassion, we invite you to help us launch a conference-wide COVID-19 Compassion Campaign and live into our 2020 Annual Conference theme “Be the Light, Live Hope!” This campaign is an expansion of our “Masks for Minnesota” effort and also includes feeding our neighbors and performing acts of kindness. Join this initiative and tell us what you're doing so we can celebrate efforts across the Minnesota Conference. Click here to read more about the campaign.

Two ways to be "be light" in the Grace community:
Lay Leader Position
Grace UMC has been blessed having Brenda Liker as our Lay Leader since January 2019. Because of Liker’s move coming up in June, Brenda is hereby relinquishing her position as Lay Leader effective immediately. This opens up that slot for anyone interested in being “the primary representative of the church on the local level” (Book of Discipline). If you are interested in this position, please give Pastor Gary a call (651-280-0150) or send him an email ( pastorgary@tds.net ).

April Mission Update
On a typical Easter morning we collect an "Easter Special Offering" that is split between Heifer International and The Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes (formally known as Kids Against Hunger). This year, $50 from our noisy offerings will go towards each of these missions. Thank you to those who gave coins in January, February & March not knowing exactly where they would go. We are grateful to be able to support mission work that helps the hungry, especially during this economic uncertainty. If you would also like to contribute to April Missions send your donation to church at Grace UMC, PO Box 276, Pequot Lakes, MN 56472, mark "April Missions" on the memo.
