In preparation for the 2016 General Conference, all 131 United Methodist Annual Conferences around the world are going to participate in a 131 day continuous prayer vigil leading up to the May 10-20 gathering in Portland, Oregon. North Georgia will be participating on February 24, 2016.
North Georgia United Methodists can sign up for a time they will commit to pray on Feb. 24, and they can take part in prayer services or prayer times offered that day around our Conference. Sunday School classes, UMW circles, UMM groups, youth groups, Bible Studies, Emmaus groups, prayer teams and entire congregations are asked to join in praying for our delegation to General Conference and for the work of holy conferencing that will take place in May. (Learn more about General Conference at www.ngumc.org/GC2016)
The prayer effort began January 1 with the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference.
In North Georgia we hope to have many more than one person praying in each time slot, but also must have at least one person for each time in order to keep continuous prayer for these 24 hours.
