I would like to share with you that our church-wide prayer week is coming up March 10-17, 2019. We invite not only our church members but also the entire community to join us as we spend a week concentrating on talking with and listening to our awesome God! We have several events scheduled for this week that aim to bring the church together in prayer, as Jesus told us, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them" (Matthew 18:20). The schedule for this week is below, but I would like to highlight a few areas.
For years, we at Shady Grove UMC have partnered with Piedmont in order to meet their physical needs. We have set aside March 10 to meet their spiritual needs. We will meet at the school at 2:00 on the 10th to prayer walk through the school as a church. Anyone is welcome that afternoon to come and pray with us.
The 24-hour Day of Prayer, which will be from Wednesday March 18 at 8:00am to Thursday March 19 at 8:00am, is a wonderful opportunity to cover our church family and community in prayer. Those who would like to participate can sign up for thirty minute time slots. While you are more than welcome to come and pray at the church, you do not have to be in the building to pray during your time slot. If you would like to sign up to join your brothers and sisters in prayer, you can email Ashley Wren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Though this week is concentrating on prayer, we would also like to come together for a service project to put some work behind our words! We will meet at the church at 8am on March 16th for a breakfast provided by UMM before we split up and work on various projects throughout the church. These projects are not only to keep our church in working order, but also to keep it looking nice and clean! If you would like to sign up to help, you can email Ashley Wren at email@example.com. If you are planning to attend, please sign up so we can include you in the breakfast!
We hope to see many faces throughout the week at our worship services and at the altar. We encourage everyone both in the church and in the community to join with us as we seek God's face. If you have any questions, you can reply to this post or email Ashley Wren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goodbye for now!
