Commission on A Way Forward Special Worship Service
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 05:30pm - 06:15pm

Please reserve on your calendars Wednesday evening, February 28 for a joint prayer gathering of Wisconsin’s Delegation, the Cabinet and other Conference leadership. This dedicated time of prayers and sermon from Bishop Jung will be held at 5:30 p.m. in Room 204 of the Sun Prairie United Methodist Center. The service is planned to last 45 minutes.

The Council of Bishops initiated Praying Our Way Forward to support the work of the Commission on a Way Forward and prepare the UMC for the Special Called General Conference in February 2019. Prayers are being developed by the annual conferences across our international connection for the weeks leading up to the GC session in Saint Louis. Wisconsin has been assigned the week of February 18, 2018, with the prayer focus Protection. Barbara Dick has coordinated the development of prayers by our delegation members.

Upon Bishop Jung’s request the February 28 date was established. As part of this prayer engagement the COB committed to organizing focused prayer services within their episcopal areas. This will be a significant time for our annual conference leadership to intentionally gather. Our intercessory prayers on behalf of the important work of the Commission, as well as for the subsequent COB recommendations which will shape the future of our denomination, will provide crucial support of this historic process.
