December in The Upper Room Chapel

December 1, 2019 by Beth A. Richardson

TO LIVE BY God's call means making ourselves available to the power of the Spirit within us. When we become available to the Spirit, our personal stories become part of God's great story of redeeming love, despite our weaknesses. —Kara Lassen Oliver

GOD OF THE HEAVENS and the earth, we need your peace. Send your gentle, fierce Spirit to all the war-torn lands and broken relationships. Come, God of peace. We need you today.  Amen.

-Beth A. Richardson

Wednesday, December 11 at 10:45 a.m. in The Upper Room Chapel, we will gather for a special service of Lessons and Carols. We’ll be led by Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Rev. Dr. Cynthia Wilson, and the choir.  

Please consider inviting your family, friends, or church community to join us in our services this month. On December 18th we will gather in the chapel and have a Christmas hymn sing.
