The Barton County Association of Churches will hold a unity prayer service at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, at the First United Methodist Church, 2123 Forest. A special offering will be taken for Emergency Aid.
The goal is to have representation from every church in Great Bend. Sponsors describe this as an opportunity to unite in the worldwide observance of the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Jan. 18-25, which began in 1908 in New York.
Everyone is welcome. The speaker will be the Rev. Carrie Buhler from Trinity Methodist Church, 5700 Broadway Ave.
The Barton County Association of Churches is comprised of churches in the Barton County area. Association members meet five times a year to share information about their churches and to plan BCAC events, which include the annual soup supper in October, unity service in January, Lenten lunches, Widow’s Mite during Lent, and scholarship in May for a high school student. The funds raised are for the Barton County Emergency Aid Association.
“We truly appreciate the support of our member churches, as well as the community,” spokesman Nancy Sundahl stated in a news release. “We want to offer a sincere thank you to all who supported our soup supper in October. Your generosity on bahalf of the BCAC/Emergency Aid is greatly appreciated.”
All churches are welcome to become part of the association, which is here to serve the community. For more information contact Nancy Sundahl at 620-793-5894 or Betty Clark Keenan, 793-7934.
