    Men's prayer group

    Wednesday at 7:30am

    July 15 and July 22 in Room 114

    As the church, we know that prayer will strengthen us in all that we do individually and as a community. These two meetings will be the basis on which we organize a regular group to convene after Labor Day. You are invited to participate in one or both of the meetings.

    The meetings will last about half an hour and include a short opening reading, shared reflections and closing intercessory prayer. Time for socializing will be available afterward while leaving space, for those who so desire, to attend the 8:30 communion service in the wilderness habitat.

    Social distancing and use of masks are required. We are restricted to 15 men with RSVPs who have signed up ahead of time. Go to this link to sign up: https://bit.ly/fumcmen
