Congregational Prayer

This week in our prayers we especially remember to pray for:

  • Persons grieving the loss of loved ones, including our custodian, Wendy Store, in the loss, this past week, of her brother, James Strykiwsky. 
  • People feeling uncertain about the easing of pandemic restrictions – navigating what they are comfortable with, and what others might be comfortable with – with regard to masks, gathering, visiting, etc. May God grant wisdom and patience.
  • The people directly affected by wildfires, floods, the earthquake in Haiti, the change of government in Afghanistan, resulting in uncertainty and even panic.  
  • That “. . . other hearts, in other lands are beating with hopes and dreams as true and high as [ours].”  (from “This Is My Song” VT #710)

God, hear our prayers . . .

Let’s join together in a congregational prayer, led by Dianne H.

Prayer Song

We Listen to God’s Word

Children’s Feature

Sometimes we just have to slow down and listen…and maybe in that moment, we can know that God is with us, no matter what!
So take a deep breath, and listen/watch this:)
