Good Friday 24-hour Prayer Vigil
A vital part of our Holy Week observance is the Good Friday 24-hour Prayer Vigil. This will be held from noon on Friday, April 18th to noon Saturday, April 19th in the Chapel. We need to be in "continuous prayer", therefore, we ask you to sign the sheets that will be passed through the congregation during both services on April 6th. The Prayer Vigil sign-up board will also be in the Great Hall beginning Sunday, March 30th. Prayer request cards will also be available in the Great Hall, and will be placed in the worship bulletins on Sunday, April 13th. There are several ways to submit your prayer concerns. You can drop them in the little white church (in the Great Hall), in the offering plate, or in the church office at your convenience. Please park in the west parking lot, and enter the building by using the west door nearest the Chapel. There will be a security guard on duty and an Elder will greet you when you enter the church. Your Prayer Vigil experience will include guidelines for prayer, the opportunity to take communion and the opportunity to pray for the many requests listed on the prayer cards.
