A reception will follow the service. The family is inviting those who would like to join them at the Rose Park Pavilion. 


MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

On Sunday, June 21 at 10:30, we will meet on the front lawn for worship.  


Those gathering to worship will have two options:

  1. Stay in their cars and listen to worship on their FM radios.  

  2. Sit on the lawn with immediate family, bring a lawn chair or blanket.  Spaces will be marked off.

Guidelines for safe worship:

  • Anyone showing symptoms of sickness should remain home.

  • No passing of offering plates or anything else (including communion elements) from car to car, or people to people.

  • Receive and exchange of items will happen with gloved and masked volunteers as people come into worship.

  • Electronic giving or mailing offerings are requested.

  • No use of public bathrooms will be permitted.

  • Attendees are asked to stay inside vehicles at all times if they do not choose to sit on the lawn.

  • For individuals wanting to sit in the lawn area, they must maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other households at all times. They are responsible for bringing their own lawn furniture, and blankets.

  • Those who would like to sit on the lawn are asked to wear a mask to protect others while we sing during worship.

  • Attendees should not interact physically with clergy, staff or participants in other vehicles or spaces. 

  • Vehicles should contain only members of a single household. Do not bring your neighbors or others outside of your household. 

“RACISM AND ME” – 21-DAY CHALLENGE

Have you ever made a successful change in your life? If you have, you know that change is hard, it takes time, intention, and attention. Learning more about social justice, particularly issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership is like building any new habit – it involves spending time and paying attention. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you, to teach you, to help you grow. For 21 days, starting on June 15, we will challenge ourselves to dedicating 21-days to reading, learning, and noticing issues surrounding racism and how it impacts our lives. To find out more about the challenge, visit our website – graceumcbillings.org.
