On Sunday, June 23, 2019, Community Spirit UCC, Montrose participated in the 7th Annual Colorado West Pride Parade in Grand Junction, CO.
For four Junes now, our church has made the 65-mile drive to Grand Junction on a Sunday morning to have “worship in the street” as we join in the only Pride Parade in our wider area. We want those who attend the parade, as well as those who participate, to know that love and support for the LGBTQIA community (and their friends and families) isn’t confined to Grand Junction alone. We are always met with wild cheers, genuine expressions of thanks, and even a few surprised faces from people who can’t imagine there’s an ally church in Montrose. We love going to witness to the boundless love of God and are already thinking about what we’ll do when we take part again in 2020!
