Recent Updates
A return to yellow involves more things than just a return to masking. The direction from the Conference is to continue to monitor the county numbers and make changes as needed. If the spread number is over 5% we should follow all of the yellow protocols. At this time, Crow Wing county is at 5.7%, Cass county is trending higher. Masking is the easiest thing that we can do. It is my hope that if the numbers stay where they are that we will not need to return to distanced seating in the sanctuary and no singing by the congregation. We are monitoring the county numbers closely and changes may happen rapidly. The goal is always to create a safe space for worship for everyone.

August Mission

Have you noticed all the Back to School commercials on TV and ads in the newspaper? Soon our students, teachers and support staff will be going to school again. It may be online or in person, masked or unmasked.
Either way they all need our prayers and support this year more than ever.
One way to support the 5 teachers who are members of our Grace family is by donating to our "Back to School Bonanza" mission project this month. Money received for this mission will be used to provide those teachers with gift cards to purchase materials for their classrooms. Teachers chosen this year:
-Carla Goddard
-Andrea Langhoff
-Lynn Lundgren
-Chris Palmer
-Liz Wallace

Money will be collected through August 22nd. Put your check (marked Back to School) in the offering plate, send it to the church, or place it in the "yellow crayon" in the narthex. Thank you  so much!
