SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE
Saturday, December 14, 2013 - 9:00 a.m. – in the sanctuary
Our church will be open from 9 am – 5 pm on 12/14/13 for prayer
All throughout the scriptures we are urged to “remember“. The shooting of the innocents on December 14, 2012 is one such event in the life of our community and church. We will mark that day by gathering for “prayers and presence” in the sanctuary, to remember God’s love…
“For such a time is this”.
The Men’s Group will provide coverage of the property all day, for the management of the press.
The Monroe United Methodist Church will offer hospitality, following worship in Rauner Hall.
Come and support one another with your presence as we remember.
Our sanctuary and building are closed to the media and press corp. unless their desire is to sit quietly, pray, and reflect on this
tragic event. We ask that they be respectful of any persons on church property and allow them to come and go
freely without hindrance or questions.
“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can,
At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”

Wesley Covenant Prayer
I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,
exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
