The South Georgia Conference is centering itself around prayer in 2023. April’s prayer guide, written by South Georgia Certified Lay Ministers Anne Bosarge, Joeli Chance, Sara Fullerton, Gracie Martin, Whitney Weyeneth, Chris Moncus, and Ben Hasty is now available at www.sgaumc.org/year-of-prayer. This month’s prayer guide includes prayers for each day of holy week. A bulletin insert is also available for local churches to use.
District prayer days are also being planned. This year for Annual Conference our theme is, "When They Prayed." During the six weeks leading up to Annual Conference each district will be assigned one week to pray for our Annual Conference. Laity and clergy from each district will gather over Zoom and spend time praying through scripture, liturgy, response, and silent individual prayer. If you'd like to join us, choose your district's date and fill out the registration below to the appropriate district. If you would like to participate and you can't make your assigned date, join another district! The most important part is that we all pray!
