A Note About Sunday’s Worship & Upcoming Events:
This weekend’s worship, along with upcoming Sundays and other church events, will go on as planned. If we are advised to limit worship or events we will let you know as soon as possible. If you can’t come to church this weekend, Pastor Gary’s sermon will be posted online . We are also in the works for getting our live-streaming ready to be shared. We will let you know the link for watching worship online as soon as it becomes available. As always, please stay home when you are sick. Also, let Grace leaders or the church office know if you are in need of support. Together we will take courage, be patient, consider the least of these, and press onward while loving our neighbors. Peace and wash your hands!

Thank You Message: Bonnie Wulf, from Pine River UMC, would like to offer her thanks for the outpouring of love and cards on the passing of her husband, John, age 89, on March 4.
Faith Communities & COVID-19

Connectional Podcast
The Connectional podcast is sponsored by the Minnesota Annual Conference. The Book of Discipline describes the unique term "connectionalism" as the "vibrant web of interactive relationships" between us as Wesleyan folks. To stay connectional in the 21st century, however, we use conferences, phone calls...and podcasts...to help us share stories and support one another.

This week's episode might be of special interest to people of Grace:
The latest episode of the “Connectional” podcast features Rev. Nick Scutari, who pastors a United Methodist church in the 2,163-person southwestern Minnesota town of Tracy. This episode delves into grief and struggle, parenting a child with special needs, trusting and believing in yourself, rural living, and the legacy of Rev. Clint Evans, as well as what it is like to process losing a friend.
