Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2017: January 18-25th

week of prayerJoin us for services during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The theme this year is: "Reconciliation - The Love of Christ compels us" (2 Corinthians 5:14-20)

At least once a year, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special celebrations and prayer services. The event that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

This year the liturgy has been put together by an ecumenical group in Germany. The services aim to celebrate God’s love and grace, reflecting the main concern of the churches marked by the Reformation, and to recognize the pain of the subsequent deep divisions which afflicted the Church, and offer an opportunity to take steps toward reconciliation. Please join us for this opportunity to worship and pray for church unity with our Christian brothers and sisters.
