World Day of Prayer service set March 7 A local service sponsoring World Day of Prayer will be held at Gayville Lutheran Church on March 7 at 2 p.m. This is an ecumenical celebration of informed prayer and powerful action spanning over 170 countries beginning in the 19th century. This year's theme is "Holy Spirit, Fill Us" and was written by the women of Lebanon.
Other area churches participating will be: Gayville United Methodist Church of Gayville, Bergen Lutheran Church of Meckling, Faith United Lutheran Church of Volin and Vangen Lutheran Church of Mission Hill.
"Holy Spirit, Fill Us," this year's theme, encourages us to remember that what God has made is good, and what God intends is abundant life for everyone.
Everyone is invited to attend this event and join the women of Lebanon in prayer and song to support women's ecumenical ministries toward peace and justice. An offering to support the ongoing work of Church Women United will be taken. For more information, call Marie Erickson at 267-4151.
