Grand Rapids Pride Festival
One of the things that makes Westminster such a special community for all of us is that it values inclusion of every person - including those folks in the LGBT community. Every year Grand Rapids has a Pride festival to celebrate the LGBT community. Many churches, including Westminster, host booths to let the LGBT community know that God loves them and that there is a faith community for them right here in Grand Rapids. For several years now, Westminster has hosted a booth at the festival. Emerging Westminster will be coordinating our church's booth for the second year in a row.
The 2014 Pride Festival will be held on Saturday, June 14 at Calder Plaza. We are looking for volunteers to staff the booth for one hour between 1:00 and 6:00p. The volunteers will be asked to represent Westminster, talk a little about our church to festival attendees who stop by the booth, and answer any questions they may have about the life of our community. They are looking for three volunteers each hour during the afternoon.
If you are interested in supporting this special event and are willing to donate one hour of your time on June 14, please e-mail A.J. at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know which time slot between 1:00 and 6:00p you are interested in volunteering. If you have any questions, please contact A.J. at 616-531-4653.
Thank you for considering supporting Westminster in this event!
