October 22 and 29 – Lord, Have Mercy: Surviving the Prayers of the People

Whether you eagerly anticipate the Prayers of the People in our Sunday morning worship, or your eyes glaze over as yet another list of names is read, the practice of corporate intercessory prayer is long and deeply rooted in Christian tradition. We will explore the history of intercessory prayer, and what our prayerbook says about how those prayers are chosen and included in worship. – Led by The Rev. Jennifer Deaton

Upper Room

Knit one Pray Too

Facilitated by  Rev. Jennifer Deaton, Susan Nix, and Anne Robertson

If you’ve ever wanted to give knitting a try, and learn how it is as much a practice of prayer as it is making loops of yarn over needles, join us in the Upper Room on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.  No experience or materials necessary – just eager hands and an open heart! We will be making hats for our Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club.
