Come Ride the PRIDE BUS!

Sunday, June 25, 8AM

Epworth United Methodist Church

Come help the Reconciling Committee advertise Epworth (and/or your spiritual group) as we march (and roll) through San Francisco Pride.
The bus picks up at the church at 8AM. It will take us to San Francisco to participate in the parade. You can get out and hold signs with us or sit in the comfort of the bus the whole time, enjoying being part of the parade.  If you don’t want to ride in from Berkeley so early, just meet us there by 11AM.
The bus returns to Epworth in the afternoon. There are bathrooms on the bus.
To purchase a seat on the bus:
2. click on “Donate to Epworth”
3. Donate $40*
4. From the drop down menu choose Pride Bus 1 ticket ($40)
5. Enter email & name
6. Click continue
7. Repeat for additional tickets
*$40 covers the cost of the bus but we have “Pride Angels” able and willing to cover any difference so Pay What You Can.
This Pride Bus is not just for LGBTQIA members but very much for allies too. Come show the world how inclusive our church is!

Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir is hosting a historic event, the Golden Gate Festival — Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir from July 9-15, 2023.

Ten choirs from around the world (Lithuania, Estonia, the Philippines, Georgia, Australia, Canada, U.S.) will join to participate in a memorable week of concerts, competitions, special events, and cultural exchange. PEBCC needs help during this time to host adult members of visiting choirs to rehearsals, concerts, and other events. Homestay families provide housing for their guests, transportation to and from all rehearsals and Festival events, meals, and (most especially) a welcoming home atmosphere.

Modified COVID Procedures

The church council has decided to modify our Covid procedures for Sunday worship. To continue to provide enhanced ventilation we will open the back side double doors during worship instead of opening the divider wall. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tom Huetteman, Joseph Koroma, or Laurel Williams.
