We are asking everyone from Grace Church to park at the Warwick High School where the Operation Barnabas busses will be running throughout the entire event to shuttle people to and from the Rodeo and Western Event.

Will there still be regular Sunday Services that morning? YES! We will have our normal 9:00 and 10::45 worship services and children’s programs in the church on June 24. The morning services will be more informal and celebratory. Please feel free to dress more casual and even wear to church what you will be wearing to attend the Rodeo and Western Event.

What if it rains on June 24? This will be a “rain or shine” event. Please be praying fervently that God would give us a perfect weather day for our Rodeo and Western Event.
