The World Day of Prayer, sponsored by Church Women United, will be held on Friday, March 5, 2021. There will be a prayer vigil in the church sanctuary from 9 – 5. You may sign up for time slots in the HUB. Residents in the satellites are also encouraged to pray in their rooms. A program will be held in the church sanctuary at 7 p.m., and it will be broadcast on channel 21.
The featured country this year will be Vanuatu, a Y-shaped tropical archipelago in the South West Pacific. Vanuatu is a beautiful, diverse, independent nation with 65 inhabited islands, each with their own customs, language and religion. The indigenous peoples are mainly of Melanesian descent. Christians comprise 83 percent of the total population of 312,000 in Vanuatu
Choosing the land, the foundation, on which to build a home is a very important decision in Vanuatu; their islands are prone to earthquakes, cyclones, volcanic eruptions and rising sea water. The theme of the program is Build on a Strong Foundation based on Matthew 7:24-27. Our sisters’ call of faith to us is to build our lives listening to the Word of God, in love for one another, with informed prayer and prayerful action. Christ is our Foundation.
Save the date, March 5, and join us in prayer, word and song.
