We need you to help us prepare a Conference-wide week of prayer August 13th-19th, 2017.
This prayer movement is a response to the Council of Bishops’ initiative called, Praying Our Way Forward, as a way of prayerfully supporting our denomination during the work of the Commission on the Way Forward. We are called to a posture of prayer, praying for God’s leadership to guide us effectively in fulfilling the mission of the church. Clergy and laity, conferences and congregations across the denomination are asked to pray for God’s guidance. For more information about the history of this initiative, click here.
Each Annual and Central Conference has a designated week to pray for this important work. The Desert Southwest Conference is scheduled to pray on August 13-19, 2017. Click here if you’re interested in finding out when the other Conferences are praying.
Next week’s newsletter will announce ideas and resources you can use in your ministry setting for the Conference-wide week of prayer. If there is something you need to engage your congregation in this effort, please email Rev. Beth Rambikur, Director of Connectional Ministries at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most importantly, pray, pray, pray.
