Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Week of Prayer

January 18-25, 2015

This year we’re reading and preaching through John’s gospel, which includes Jesus’ prayer for his followers in John 17: “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me” (v. 23).

Given our direction for this year, it’s especially appropriate that the 2015 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity focuses on John 4: Jesus said to her: “Give me a drink.” We are warmly invited to gather as follows:
