Annual Conference Laity Session is June 5. Please join with us in seeking God’s blessing for those who represent the lay people of the church.

Dearest Lord, you are supremely present to all of us, laity and clergy alike, and we bless your Holy Name.

Bless and keep our Lay Representatives, gathering digitally on this day. Help them to represent their peers in truth and in humility. They are your servants, Lord, and they are the strength of your Church. 

You are always present among those who love you. Thank you for a church in which the laity always has a voice. Be with the United Methodist Church as we go forward into a new Conference year. May all the congregations say “Amen!” In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen, and again Amen.
