A Time of Prayer for a Pandemic Year
Thursday, March 11, 5:30PM in the Pavilion
Grieving what was lost
Giving thanks for God’s blessings
Seeking God’s guidance for the year ahead.
A year ago, on March 11, the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Soon thereafter, public events, schools, churches and businesses around the world began a year of disruption and adaptation. Over 500,000 people died in the U.S and many more were sick. We also saw God at work in blessing us with resilience, mutual concern, new treatments and vaccines, and new ways to stay connected, to pray together and serve Christ in the world.
We will have a special Communion Service to mark this occasion on Thursday, March 11, at 5:30PM at the Pavilion. During the service, you will have the opportunity to write out on a card the losses that you grieve. We will burn those cards in the service as a sign of giving that grief to our God. On a second card, you can write thanksgivings for God’s blessings and prayers for God’s guidance in the days ahead – and keep that card to remember and to guide your prayers in the future.
Please join us for this special outdoor in-person or join us online!
