Welcome Pastor Jen
Pastor Jen Matthees will begin her ministry with Grace during this week's worship service. Pastor Jen is originally from Winona, MN and has most recently been serving Immanuel UMC in Winona. She and her husband Mark have one adult daughter Megan who lives in Texas. Pastor Jen studied at both WSU and San Diego Christian College while obtaining her degree in Christian Ministry Studies, she is a Licensed Local Pastor for the Minnesota Annual Conference. She has served in both administrative and pastoral roles within church settings. She is a skilled business leader who has created and led many successful teams, and views her secular career experiences as a benefit to the churches she serves. She points to numerous youth mission trips and working with families during end of life celebrations as having the most impact on her own faith. Jennifer is excited to join the story of faith happening at Grace and looks forward to the beauty and peace found in northern Minnesota.

We are working on finalizing the plans for our Welcome Groups. Welcome Groups will meet one time in July or August to have a small gathering to make community space for meeting Pastor Jen. If you are interesting in hosting a group please contact Andrea Langhoff . Look for how you can sign up for a Welcome Group in next week's e-grace.
Grace Good News: Operation Sandwich in the News
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 Operation Sandwich team, who we are partnering with.

This summer we are partnering with Operation Sandwich by collecting food donations and helping to raise awareness for the program. Operation Sandwich successfully expanded this summer to include a northern route to serve folks in Nisswa, Pequot Lakes, and Pine River. No proof of need is required, families can easily request a lunch supply bag which contains five days of lunch supplies.


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