Pride Invitation ~ Saturday, July 8

Just over a year ago, Hope United Church of Christ (UCC) made a commitment to strive to become a more welcoming community to our neighbors and in particular to the LGBTQ community.  And it was great for those who helped work our booth at Cedar Rapids Pride to share that we are an Open and Affirming church.  Well, now we have the chance to do it again!

The annual celebration of Cedar Rapids Pride will be on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at NewBo City Market from 12-4 pm.  Hope UCC will once again have a booth at the event along with several other welcoming faith communities in the area.  And we need you!

The Welcoming & Hospitality Team and Missions Committee are teaming together to bring our welcome to the event, but you—the congregation—are the true representation of who we are.  So if you are interested in helping work our table, please see a member of the Welcoming Team: Cathy Evers, Susan Hodin, Alicia Landers, Mike Slagenweit-Coffman, and Pastor Mary Beth.  But in any event, please come and show your support!
