Next Monday will be the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Orlando shooting and tragedy. I can think of no better way to honor and remember those victims than by making the world a better place for all LGBTQ persons. For that reason among many, I am excited to share that Sara Cunningham will be our guest preacher on Sunday, June 11, 6pm. You won’t want to miss hearing about her 3-week tour across the country to remind the LGBTQ community that they are valued and loved, and to give out an abundance of free hugs!
I also want to wish everyone a happy Pride month. This year marks the 30th year for the OKC Pride Parade, which is being held on Sunday, June 25. The parade goes from NW 39th Street from Classen to Youngs and will include over 100 entries, including our own! This year we will be sharing a Pride Festival booth with church of the Open Arms on Saturday, June 24,10am-8pm, and Sunday, June 25, 10am-4pm.
We will also be marching in the parade, carrying our banner, and LOVE balloon sculpture which we debuted last year! We will need help on pride weekend for blowing up and attaching all the balloons, more info to come about that. Also we are invited to a Pride Ice Cream Social after the parade hosted by Church of the Open Arms; it’s a great way to cool off after the heat!
Our new Pride t-shirts will be arriving soon; I did order 1 extra for each size in case someone would like to purchase but did not sign-up to order one. Cost will be $16 per shirt.
Love and Pride blessings to all!
