We begin by sharing joys and concerns, then share in a pastoral prayer, and then close with Compline prayers from the Book of Common Prayer. This lasts about 15-20 minutes. Leadership will rotate and include me and church leaders. I will be the leader in these first days as we build this ministry, and then we will begin to rotate so that I will lead some nights, and others will lead some nights.

Just a reminder out of kindness, please place your phone on mute.  By placing your phone on mute until you want to request a prayer or comment.  You will be able to hear the service without other background noises present.  Thank you!
