February 25, 2019

February 5, 2019 – Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate the annual World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 1, 2019.  Carroll Lutheran Village will host the Carroll County service beginning at 10:30 a.m. in Krug Chapel Auditorium.

The ecumenical service was written by the women of the World Day of Prayer Committee of Slovenia, who invite us to explore Jesus’ parable of the Great Dinner with the theme “Come—Everything is ready.”  Students from Carroll Lutheran School in Westminster will participate in a variety of ways and Rev. Rodney Gross from Lazarus United Church of Christ in Lineboro will be the guest speaker.

World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many cultures and traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March.  World day of Prayer promotes justice and equality for women through prayer, partnerships, service and celebration.  Each year a different country’s committee writes the World Day of Prayer worship service.

World Day of Prayer is planned locally by Church Women United of Carroll County.  Men, women and children of all faiths are invited and welcome to attend the service in Krug Chapel Carroll Lutheran Village.  In the event of inclement weather, the World Day of Prayer service is cancelled if Carroll County Public Schools are delayed or closed.
