Prayer Vigil

Every year the First Church Prayer Chain conducts a 24 hour prayer vigil that begins in the sanctuary at 9:00 PM at the conclusion of the Maundy Thursday Service, and continues through 9:00 PM on Good Friday. There is a quiet space provided for participants on the chancel of the church, which includes a comfortable chair, choices of  reading materials and selections of music as you spend a quiet, prayerful hour.  There will be a signup sheet posted on the bulletin board across from the church office that lists one-hour time slots. In the past we have had some difficulty filling the late night hours, so we now allow vigil participants to pray from home if that is more convenient. If your schedule permits, please consider one of these times. If you have any questions or want more information, please call the church office at 860-742-8487.
