Day of Preparation - Prayer Vigil - Saturday, April 19, 2014
After Jesus was crucified, many
prepared spices for his burial. These followers of Jesus did not yet know
the Good news of the Resurrection on that day. As modern day Christians we now
know the entire, wonderful story.
On Saturday, April 19th, SVPC
will hold a Prayer Vigil from 6:00 AM until 6:00 PM, approximately sunrise to
sunset, coinciding with the Day of Preparation. During this time, each
participant will be asked to devote 30 minutes at the church to read scripture,
pray, and/or meditate. For those who would like, there will be a list of
scriptures and prayers as a guide during this 30 minute vigil. The sanctuary
will be available most of the day except when the Chancel Committee is
preparing it for Easter Sunday, which will probably be from 9:00 am until
noon. You may also use the Lillian Gatchell Prayer Room located on the
second floor, as well as the library, or anywhere in or around the church that
you feel called to spend this quiet time with God. If you are unable to
physically come to the church, you are still encouraged to participate.
There will be a sign up sheet in the Narthex on Sundays, in the Fellowship Hall
on Wednesday nights, or you can call Lana. If you will be having your
prayer vigil away from the church, please note that either on the sheet or to
Lana as we would like for someone to be praying at the church during the entire
twelve hour period.
