June 2023 Pride brings three opportunities to celebrate

June 2023 Pride brings three opportunities to celebrate with our church family and the larger community.

1)  Rainbow Love, Worthington Pride (Sunday Funday, June 4, 12-5 pm).  Please join us for an hour or two as we pass out popcorn and rainbow bracelets and celebrate Pride with our Worthington community.

2) Central Ohio Reconciling Ministries Pride Worship Service at Broad Street UMC (Friday, June 16; 7 pm). We will join local UMC reconciling congregations for this worship service, which concludes with communion. Please join us as we joyfully celebrate Pride and worship our awesome God who welcomes ALL people with open arms!


3) 42nd Pride Parade in downtown Columbus (Saturday, June 17; 10:30 am step-off from Broad and High).  We have space for up to 25 people to join our contingent of walkers.  Does walking the parade route seem a little daunting, but you still want to participate and show your support? We have spots for 10 or more people to ride in the decorated church van!

We need your help!  Please review the available slots and sign up through SignUp Genius OR email openheartswumc@gmail.com to share your availability.  Participants of all ages are encouraged and welcome. Thank you!
