We'd like to invite you to be a part of Christ's family that has a cherished past since 1834 and a very bright future. We are a very active church filled with things to do for every age from precious newborns to those full of the wisdom of many years on God's good earth and all those many wonderful times in between. There is a place for you here. We would love to be your church family and have you travel with us the journey of faith that grows and lasts a lifetime. Please explore our website to learn a little about us, then plan a visit so we can have an opportunity to serve you!
Mackinaw Prayer 24
October 28-29, 2016 7 am to 7 am
A Prayer Vigil for Peace and End to Violence
A 24-hour period of silent and spoken prayers for world peace and an end to violence, terrorism and oppression is being hosted by our church. We will be offering prayers for our country, our election process as well as prayers for leaders in our communities, state, national and international locations. This is also an opportunity for prayers for those suffering from disease, hunger, strife and turmoil in their lives. We will offer prayers for everlasting peace and the love of God to touch everyone. This is a chance to pray together and enter into God’s presence for healing and inspiration.
Judah International Ministries, Mackinaw Christian Church, Mackinaw United Methodist Church (MUMC) and New Castle Bible Church are joining to provide this opportunity for us to come together and pray. MUMC is the host site for the event, and we welcome everyone to come for a period of prayer time whenever convenient for you. Our church sanctuary will be open from 7 am Friday the October 28th thru 7 am Saturday the 29th. A sign-up list will be available on our Opportunity Board to indicate when you would like to come, however, sign-up is not necessary!
We wish to reach out to everyone, providing opportunities for you to talk with God. Don’t know where to start? Simple guidelines will be provided which will list scriptures to help you meditate, prayers for you to read and speak, and inspirational writings to assist you in your prayer time. We will pray for specific situations of violence. We can all unify around Christ’s teachings of love as the root of all our actions. We pray for God to grant strength, creativity and vision in the face of war and violence and His leading grace to strength us.
Area pastors and others will have an opportunity once an hour to publicly offer prayers. Private prayer time, group prayer time and spiritual assistance will be available. We also will offer two opportunities for prayer at Veterans Memorial Park for those who would rather pray in an outdoor setting. Times will be 12 – 1 and 6-7.
This is an opportunity to reach out to others. We hope this will provide strength and support for peace-committed Christians. Please contact Pastor Shelly or Dick Thierry for more information.
