Pray for Special General Conference
The Adult Education Committee invites you to join us to pray for this very special General Conference. The Council of Bishops have encouraged us to come together to pray from 2:23 pm to 2:26 pm on each day of the Conference, Saturday, February 23rd, Sunday, February 24th, Monday, February 25th, and Tuesday, February 26th.
We’ll meet in the Sanctuary for prayer time together praying 4 different prayers led by a member of the congregation.
A Prayer of Adoration
A Prayer of Thanks
A Prayer of Confession, and
A Prayer of Asking.
Our response will be “Hear our prayer, O God.”
After these four prayers, you’re invited to stay and pray silently, leaving when you wish.
The Committee just felt that joining together in prayer at this time was important. We hope you can join us. If you can’t join us at the church, please pray at a time and place convenient for you.
SPECIAL GENERAL CONFERENCE – February 23rd-26th in St. Louis
Please keep Pastor Rebecca and the other delegates from our Great Plains Conference in your prayers as they travel to St. Louis and their time at the Special General Conference. There have been months of planning and preparation leading up to this conversation about the full inclusion of our LGBTQ+ brothers, sisters, neighbors, and friends.
We have had a Town Hall Meeting with Bishop Saenz in our District, our church committees have been talking about the proposed plans and our UM structure for decision making, and our conversation as a congregation will continue after the General Conference as well.
Please pray for a spirit of openness, a spirit of unity, and a spirit of love for all who will be discerning the United Methodist Church’s future as it relates to our open hearts, open minds, and open doors. Thank you!
