We are One in Christ UMCprays.org

• A UMC Prayer Community

This UMC prayer movement is a response to the Council of Bishops initiative called Praying Our Way Forward. We invite all—across the denomination—to pray for God’s guidance as we approach the special-called session of General Conference to be held February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis. Here’s how:

 • Join UMCPrays.org.

 • Pause and Pray four minutes from 2:23 through 2:26 AM or PM.

 • Participate in a weekly Wesleyan fast from Thursday after dinner through Friday afternoon.

 • Use the prayer calendar to pray for delegates and bishops by name.


If you have any questions or want to talk about the issues around the conference, please contact Pastor Chris.

 Pause and Pray Cards are available on the narthex table.
