A GATHERING SPACE FOR PRAYER. We are a community of prayer, centering on the Love and Grace of God. Please be welcomed to this time of offering our prayers for ourselves and others, the community, country and the world. “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am with you” is our reminder and guide to share this time together. Bring any of your own joys and concerns, but this is not required. Come as you are—fully human and deeply loved. Planning to hold this space on the 2nd and 4th Fridays each month at 12 noon in the balcony at SPC. The zoom link will be open for those who wish to join us remotely.
