Easter isn’t just a Sunday. It’s a season.
Traditionally, the season of Easter lasts seven weeks, a “week of weeks,” spanning the “Great 50 Days” from Easter Sunday to Pentecost, a time to rejoice, give thanks, and live in gratitude. Easter is a new way of life, in which we are “dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 6:11), called to “walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6:4).
This year we will celebrate the Great 50 Days by coming before God in prayer. Beginning Sunday, April 23, Prayer Cards will be available in the pews. Fill out a card with a prayer each week, drop it in the basket at the church entrance, and pray with others through the Prayer Chain.
You may also submit your prayers online via the form below. Online submissions will go to Deacon Debbi Roldan and then to the Prayer Chain. All prayers are confidential.
You are also invited to join the deacons for times of prayer on Sunday mornings in Niles Chapel on April 23, May 7, and May 21, 10:15–11:00 AM.
We invite you enter this season in prayer.
