Southeast District Intentional Prayer Meeting for General Conference

« All Events

December 6, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thornton: Bethlehem UMC

Southeast District

Our conference is joining together for 6 months of intentional prayer prior to General Conference.  Six churches on each of our 6 districts are setting aside a specific date and time to pray, and they invite you to come and join them.

The first prayer post will be at Thornton: Bethlehem UMC on the Southeast District on Dec. 6 at 6 pm.  Rev. Tim Kriebel will be the host Pastor.   Rev. Kriebel had the vision for these prayer posts throughout the conference.  Rev. Kriebel shares:  “For a few months now I’ve had the conviction that given all the tensions, divisions, and problems not only our annual conference but also the entire UMC is facing right now, none of us can truly expect any good outcomes from General Conference apart from prayer. And so the Lord led me to the idea of having six months’ worth of prayer meetings spread out over our annual conference, one per district per month.  These prayer meetings are not meant to be partisan but humbly surrendered to the movement of the Holy Spirit. Nor are they intended to be geographically exclusive, that is, there’s one on each district for convenience, but if the date of YOUR district’s prayer post is one you can’t make, anyone can attend ANY of the prayer meetings if you’re willing to travel there.”
