Prayer Emphasis Focuses on Discernment on May 1
April 11, 2016
General Conference is a month away. Our delegation will be in Portland May 10-20 and they continue to seek your prayers. Since February, each first Sunday of the month we have asked United Methodists across Western North Carolina to pray for the bishops of the church, the general agencies and their leaders, our own delegation, and on May 1st we focus on the "Spirit of Discernment." Below is a bulletin insert prepared by Dr. Jeff Patterson, the Yadkin Valley District superientendent, and General Conference delegate: May Focus: "I am with you always" and Spirit of Discernment (download to your computer and then print) For background on the Prayer Emphasis and a video from Bishop Goodpaster and Rev. Kim Ingram, go to this article: General Conference Prayer Emphasis Begins For more prayer resources as we lead up to General Conference use these resources from the 24 Hour Vigil that was the emphasis on April 3rd.
