Help with Minnesota Reconciling Congregations booth at

Twin Cities Pride 2021 Festival, July 17-18

Sign up for your shift online at:

The Twin Cities 2021 PRIDE festival will take place Saturday and Sunday, July 17 and 18 in Loring Park and Minnesota Reconciling Congregations will again be participating with a booth! In order to make this happen, we need your help.

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 Methodist congregations and help build positive interactions by giving them a rainbow peace medallion. Jobs are available for both introverts and extroverts.

Our booth will be open the whole time that the festival is open, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday with most shifts being two hours.

*     Additional help to set up Friday morning and clean up Sunday evening is also needed. If you have previously volunteered in the booth, please consider signing up as a “lead” volunteer. The lead arrives 15 minutes before the other volunteers, checks in with the previous lead, welcomes and reviews instructions with volunteers as they arrive and helps problem solve (if needed) during the shift.

*     We also reserve a space for a clergy volunteer for each shift as questions may come up that are best answered by a clergy person though we always welcome multiple clergy in one shift.

*     All volunteers will receive a confirmation email when signing-up and a logistical email closer to PRIDE with more detailed information.

Please invite others from your church to volunteer at the booth! Place an announcement in your church’s communications and forward this email to others who may be interested in staffing the booth. If you have not previously worked in the MN Reconciling Congregations booth, this is a great opportunity to let PRIDE attendees know that there are Methodist congregations who welcome LGBTQ+ persons!
