Prayer Vigil Is April 23 In Response To White Civil Rights Events

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

God’s Unconditional Love: The Antidote for Hate is the subject of the weekly Wednesday evening service April 23 at 7 p.m. at First Church of Christ, Scientist. The person who leads the service (an elected layperson) has put together readings on this topic so participants can think prayerfully about upcoming ‘white civil rights’ events in the community. 

The Wednesday meetings are an hour long; the first half is spent listening to readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and the second half is quiet prayer and people sharing their prayers and gratitude. 

Everyone is welcome to participate.  

First Church of Christ, Scientist is at 612 McCallie Ave.  For more information call 266-0646.
