Delegates want churches to participate in prayer vigil

From Jean Henderson
Holston delegation leader

The Holston delegation to General and Jurisdictional Conferences is joining other delegations in “Saturating GC ‘04 in Prayer,” a model created by the Western Pennsylvania Conference.

The goal for every Annual Conference: Cover General Conference in prayer by recruiting at least 40 churches to each organize a one-day prayer vigil for 40 days preceding General Conference. If more than 40 churches are recruited within the conference, the vigil can be extended through the 11 days of Gen- eral Conference.

The delegation needs churches to help in this effort. To find ways to meet the goal, visit the GC Prayer Ministry Web site at

The Holston delegation's immediate request is for church leaders to notify one of the following four coordinators that your congregation will participate. Choose a day within the time frame listed for your area – or ask to be assigned a day:

March 18-27: Knoxville, Morristown, and Oak Ridge Districts. Contact Lynn Hutton by email or at (865) 690- 8641.
