MACHIAS – The 116th World Day of Prayer will be observed at 2 p.m. Friday, March 7, at Centre Street Congregational Church.
The day is sponsored by Church Women United and is observed annually in more than 170 countries around the world.
This year’s theme is “Holy Spirit, Fill Us.”
Women from three Christian families in Lebanon – Catholic, Evangelical and Orthodox – have written the service for 2003, which often alludes to biblical images.
Robb Cook, Centre Street Church organist, will accompany the singing, and Nancy Night will serve as song leader and soloist. The Rev. Charles Lightner will offer a meditation titled “That Quiet Conversation.”
Members and friends from 12 area churches will participate in the service, which is open to everyone. Fellowship and refreshments will follow the service.
