A Time Set Apart to Pray

2016gclogopraySunday, April 10th is a day set apart to pray for the United Methodist General Conference 2016 gathering in Portland, Oregon. It is a pivotal time for our church in its struggle for orthodoxy and vitality and you are asked to intercede for divine favor and direction for the whole of the conference which is scheduled for May 10th through 20th, 2016.

We are asking you to join a prayer vigil in the sanctuary that will begin immediately following the 11:00 AM  worship service at high noon and run through midnight. We will have a sign up sheet divided into 15 minute intervals available Sunday, April 3rd or you can call the office or Norman and let us know the time(s) for which you will be responsible.

Prayer guides will be provided to assist you in this focused time of intercession. Come and let the zeal of the Lord of hosts bring forth a fervent and effective time of prayer through you for our General Conference.

About laurelhillumc

Laurel Hill United Methodist Church is rich in history as a church family committed to a life in Christ. We began in the heart of Varina almost 150 years ago; the church has grown through its existence as a church-hospital in the Civil War, as a circuit church, and survived a disastrous fire which destroyed the sanctuary about 50 years ago. Then, dedicated, Spirit-filled Christians worked hard together to build a new sanctuary. That hard work has continued with many new improvements including a new addition connecting the sanctuary and educational building, the installation of an elevator providing total accessibility throughout both buildings, remodeling the education building and the installation of 18 stained glass windows. Faithful clergy and laity ministering together have established a legacy of dedication and service which enables Laurel Hill to be a beacon of light in our community, in our world and to all who follow for generations to come. In response to the needs of the Varina community, Laurel Hill United Methodist Church also operates the Laurel Hill Weekday School. These programs are an active part of the life and ministry of Laurel Hill UMC. We accept the opportunity through our morning Preschool and After School child care to share our values of love, caring, cooperation and forgiveness. The Church and child care programs work together to enhance the spiritual, mental and physical growth of children in our community. Our worship services are held each Sunday with a contemporary service at 8:45am and a traditional service at 11:00am. Sunday School begins at 9:45am. Call our office (804) 795-2772 for Bible Study times and other ministry opportunities.
