Pride Month 2022

Grace family, we are an RIC congregation and we welcome all – “exactly as you are.” We, therefore, want to lift up opportunities for all ages during Pride Month in June. There are a number of activities throughout the month (in fact, throughout the summer) organized by Twin Cities Pride. For a full listing of pride events go to tcpride.org. We encourage parents to check events carefully to determine which activities are appropriate for you/your family.

If you have questions or want to learn more about our Reconciling in Christ designation, check out graceofav.org/ric or email ric@graceofav.org. Stay tuned for more, including details for our upcoming Pride Sunday worship service in June.
