World Day of Prayer - Suriname
For only the second time since the 1990’s, the World Day of Prayer 2018 service in our area will be celebrated at Weston UMC, on Friday, March 2nd at 12 noon. Invite your family and friends to join in a one hour inspirational service of prayer and song, this year lifting up the people of the South American country of Suriname. After worship, stay and sample the aroma and flavor of some of Suriname's tasty delicacies. No reservations are needed.

Please contact Bob Hout for more info, or if you'd like to help with the event, particularly by preparing one of the delicacies (recipes are available) -

Please take a moment to write out a Prayer Request or Blessings to add to our new poster in the Narthex.

Dinner for Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen
Our hungry brothers and sisters come to the Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen, held daily in the basement of Grace Vision (formerly Immanuel) UMC, at the corner of 545 Moody Street and Cherry Street in Waltham. They are so grateful that GOD and YOU care about them! As blessed children of God, please lift up in prayer each of them and their needs and concerns, including:
- For Johnny, who suffered a seizure and is in hospital.
- For Steve, Raquel, and others, thank you for those who help.
- For John, for world peace.
- For the family and friends of Justine who died from pneumonia.
- For Tony and Linda, for a job, for health, for those in harm's way.
- To bring Jesus.

After worship on Sunday, please sign up on the two signup clipboards in the church parlor to share Christ's love by playing YOUR part in this ministry. You can contribute one or more food items for our next serving day and/or assist with reheating or serving the meal. Our next serving day is Monday, February 12th at 5 pm (the second Monday of every month). As always, please keep in your prayers this ministry of love and everyone who it touches.
