From Pastor Lisa Dempsey and the Epworth UMC family
Epworth community is deeply grieved by the recent tragedy in the Newtown community. It is so difficult to make sense of such sorrow. We turn to media to learn details and are left even more shaken with the senselessness of such actions. I believe that prayer is the means by which we can support this Newtown community and its families, and in our own soul's struggle to cope with this event.
The sanctuary of Epworth will be open for prayer tomorrow, Sunday, Dec. 16 at 9:30. There will be readings made available for your personal prayer time, and candles that you may light. Worship will begin at 10:50. We welcome you to stay and join us. The sermon will be changed to address this event, as well as remain mindful of our season of Advent. Please stop in and remember these dear families who are in such pain, and give and receive the blessing of God's accompaniment through prayer.
