Join us in prayer for Rev. Jasmine Smothers, District Superintendent Dr. Bernice Kirkland, and the congregation of Atlanta First UMC as they minister to their community in downtown Atlanta following a tragic crime at the steps of the church on Friday, May 26.
Bishop Sue shared this message:
"I ask for your prayers this morning for our city, for Rev. Jasmine Smothers and DS Bernice Kirkland as they offer a peaceful and comforting presence at the church, for the vulnerable and exposed folks on our streets, especially the one who lost his life so cruelly early this morning, and for the members and friends of Atlanta First UMC who are in ministry in these critical areas. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers."
