Church in Mission Prayer Rooms
Church in Mission Unit is offering an opportunity to Pray for each other across the Country from East to West. Given these uncertain and overwhelming times for our congregation and leaders, we invite you to join a facilitated half hour online time of prayer (modeled after the Prayer Room at GC43), to pray for every pastoral charge by name. Prayer rooms will happen throughout the summer beginning with the East and working our way to the West hosting one prayer session per region once a week. Nothing is required except your presence.
View the full Prayer Room across the Regions schedule and zoom links here.
