Candlelight Prayer Vigil to End Violence


The Rev. Darrel Cory and the Rev. Elaine Sveet are encouraging all congregations within the Presbytery of the Northern Plains to lead community candlelight prayer services across the whole presbytery this coming Sunday, October 11, 2015, at 7:00 pm. There may be people in your congregation and community wishing they had a way to express their grief over violence, bullying, assault and abuse.
