Night of Prayer
Is your New Year’s resolution to pray more? Meet in the Sanctuary on Wednesday, January 15 at 6:00pm for a time of “soaking prayer,” a short vespers service, and communion followed by opportunities for experiential prayer, such as praying with color, prayers for forgiveness and remembrance, body prayers, and walking the labyrinth. This is great to do alone or bring a friend to feel the peace of prayer with you. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Shannon Sandifer at ssandifer@broadmoormethodist.
Beginning Thursday, January 23, Rev. Shannon Sandifer will lead a time of Centering Prayer each Thursday in the Prayer Room, near the main office at Broadmoor United Methodist. You are invited to gather at noon and begin the prayer time at 12:15pm with 20 minutes of silence. No experience necessary; no registration required; just show up and experience time with God. Other opportunities for Centering Prayer are available at First United Methodist on Tuesdays at 11:45am and University United Methodist on Wednesdays at 11:45am, with 20 minutes of silence beginning at noon. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Shannon Sandifer at 225-924-6269.

January Missional Focus
This month’s missional focus is our Agape Fund. Agape is a Greek word meaning love – the kind of love that is passionately committed to the well-being of others. Our Agape Fund allows us to love our most vulnerable neighbors in very real and meaningful ways – paying for groceries to feed those who are hungry, a hotel room for those with no place to stay, a utility bill for those whose electricity is about to be shut off. By donating to the Agape Fund, you will help make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. If you want to donate by check, please write “Agape Fund” in the memo line and place the envelope in the offering plate. You can also donate securely online by going to www.broadmoormethodist.org/giving and selecting “Missions/Agape” from the drop down menu. If you want to give to specific needs, please stop by Connection Café to see our NEW Heartburst Giving Tree next Sunday, January 12. Contact Rev. Kennon Pickett at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
