VISIONING EDGEHILL UMC'S FUTURE: YOU ARE INVITED to a season of praying, listening and visioning -- alone and with others -- over the next few weeks through to Pentecost June 9.

During these first days of Eastertide find a quiet place and time(s) to pray with our gathered information --as you read and pray, listen for what you hear God pointing to, leading us to.  Sink in, settle into the comfort of prayer -- stay in both your heart and mind waiting to hear/see what God intends for Edgehill UMC.  Make notes of how you hear and see God calling us into the future.  
Then watch for the announcement of small group opportunities to bring the notes from your personal praying/listening.  Each small group's visioning will be recorded and given to the Visioning Team, who will prepare the resulting Vision for Edgehill UMC's future, to be launched on June 9, Pentecost.


Prayer Shawls Available for Congregation and Loved Ones

    “Grief and resilience live together” -- Michelle Robinson Obama

Edgehill Knitters continues to place hand knitted and sometimes crocheted Prayer Shawls on the prayer rail in the Big Room.  As we create the shawls, we pray for the person who will wrap themselves in the shawl, asking God for healing, for wholeness, for shalom, for that person's highest good.  We welcome you to pick up a prayer shawl for yourself or for a loved one who needs healing and pray that it will be a blessing as you build resilience.
