• All are welcome

  • Be still, and know that I am God

  • A place and a time for God

  • Come to me, all who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest

  • I praise you, for I am wonderfully made

  • This only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

  • At the works of your hands I shout for joy

  • Make known to me your ways, Lord; teach me your paths.

  • In verdant pastures He gives me repose

  • Be still, and know that I am God

Prayer and Reflection for Health Care Providers in Light of the Pandemic 

Date: Jul 15, 2020 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm


“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” - Matthew 11:28

Join us for an hour of pause. Ground yourself in community as we pray for the healing of our world. COVID-19 has affected so many in a deep, life-altering way, especially nurses, social workers, health care providers, grieving family members. There is a weariness that calls us to seek restoration through God’s companionship. This prayer service welcomes all; with a special invitation for those serving on the front lines, ministering to the physical care of the sick. The service will consist of readings, a guided meditation, intercessory prayer, and personal reflections.
