January in the Chapel

January 14, 2018 by Beth Richardson

Every Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. we gather to worship in The Upper Room Chapel. We are joined by staff from The Upper Room, United Methodist Agencies, and guests from the area and around the world. Central to the work of The Upper Room, this worship and prayer time inspires, uplifts, and encourages us.

We pray when things are good and we pray with things are hard. When we don’t have words to express our concern for the difficulties in the world, our hearts join together to pray on behalf of the world. All are welcome in this place. If you are ever in the area, we welcome you to join us.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
