Weekly Prayer written by First Dawn Eastern Edge Youth Forum 2020
In this time of COVID-19 Holy one, we come to you
We come with both the joys and the sorrows of our hearts.
We offer our thanks to all those in health care and working in essential services
We hope for an end to this time of uncertainty.
Divine one in you we trust

Mother, we are grateful for double bubbles, especially now as they expand
For families and friends who love us.
For health care workers, and all other essential workers whose work enables us to stay safe.
For beautiful weather and all of creation

Father, we pray for those who suffer from discrimination
Because of their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any form of prejudice.
For those who are not safe in their communities.
May they know that they are valued, loved, and seen.
We pray for peace and the well- being of all creation.

Creator, help us to be salt of the earth and light-bearers
Allow us to encourage others to see the salt and light they must share.
Together we join to make this world a better place for all. Amen.

Rendez-vous 2020
Rendez-vous 2020 is going ahead in August 2020 – just in a different way. Due to the ongoing health crisis, we will not be able to hold a large gathering in Calgary. Rendez-vous brings together youth (entering grade 9 and up to any age), young adults, and their leaders from across the church. Through real-time online events, recordings, and DIY workshop kits, we will celebrate bold faith, brave space, and brazen grace. Click here for more information.

Prayer Room Ministry
Church in Mission Unit is offering weekly Prayer Rooms for each Regional Council. Congregations and leaders are invited to join facilitated half-hour online times of prayer (modeled after the Prayer Room at GC43) to pray for every pastoral charge by name. Nothing is required except your presence.

Sign up online and join us every Tuesday on Zoom at 1:00 PM EDT beginning June 2, 2020 running until mid September
