From April 2-8, the Virginia Conference will participate in a week of intentional prayer for the mission of The United Methodist Church and for the work of the Commission on a Way Forward which began meeting in January.

This week of Praying Our Way Forward is an initiative of the Council of Bishops as a part of their larger commitment to lead the church in every part of the world in times of worship, study, discernment, confession and prayer for God’s guidance.

Each annual conference in The United Methodist Church will participate in this prayer ministry which was launched on January 1 in the North Carolina Conference and will conclude in the West Angola Episcopal area in June 2018.

Beginning Saturday, April 1 with the Bishop’s Convocation on Prayer at Trinity UMC in Richmond, our Virginia conference will enter into a week of prayer in response to the Council of Bishops’ initiative called Praying Our Way Forward.

Our conference will meet together for the Convocation on Saturday, will join in a Day of Prayer on Sunday, April 2, and then will blanket the remainder of the week (April 3-8) in prayer as Districts.
