Twin Cities PRIDE – June 24 & 25
What you can do as a reconciling congregation
PRIDE is an opportunity for LGBTQIA+ persons to celebrate their true selves and for their allies to celebrate with them. After a fantastic PRIDE Festival last year, it’s time to continue celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community. Let’s have MN Reconciling Congregations help make this another great PRIDE celebration!
Booth in Loring Park
Once again we will have a booth in Loring Park on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Each year we staff our booth with smiling volunteers from across the state and this year is no different! By signing up, you help let PRIDE attendees know that there is a place for them in United Methodist congregations and help build positive interactions by giving them a rainbow peace medallion. Jobs are available for both introverts and extroverts.
Sign up for your shift online at: https://ttsu.me/8abvvr
All volunteers will receive a confirmation email when signing up and a logistics email with more detailed information closer to PRIDE. Please contact Don at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
March Along Hennepin Avenue
The March (formerly known as the Parade) will be on Hennepin Avenue again this year. The March begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday and will go from 7th & Hennepin to Loring Park. This is a great way to be part of the PRIDE celebration! All ages are welcome to participate. Don Prestly is coordinating the March preparations. Pastor Max Richter will be the on-site March Coordinator. Please contact Don at email@example.com with questions. More information will be sent out closer to PRIDE.
Please invite others from your church to volunteer at the booth or be in the March! Place an announcement in your church’s communications and forward this email to others who may be interested in being part of the PRIDE celebration. If you have not previously participated in the MN Reconciling Congregations PRIDE activities, this is a great opportunity to let PRIDE attendees know that there are United Methodist congregations who welcome LGBTQIA+ persons!
