The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has strong commitments to seeking Christian unity through dialogue, service, and prayer. Vine Street Christian Church has long been involved in ecumenical efforts in our city and nation, as well as globally.
We gladly extend the invitation to an ecumenical prayer service in observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The service has been prepared by Christians in Poland; here in Nashville, it will be hosted by Otter Creek Church of Christ on Wednesday, January 18, at 7pm.
Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated each year in cities and towns across the country and around the world.
The theme for the 2012 observance of this week is "We Will All Be Changed by the Victory of Our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:51-58)
The service, which will be held as part of middle Tennessee’s observance of this annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, will take place at 7:00 PM at Otter Creek Church of Christ, 409 Franklin Road, Brentwood, TN.
Reverend Joseph Breen of St. Edward Catholic Church will deliver the message. Special music will be provided by Otter Creek Church. Area pastors will be leading prayers and scripture readings centered around this year’s theme.
In conjunction with this Prayer Service, Operation Andrew’s United 4 Hope and Room in the Inn will be collecting donations of coats, especially children and teen coats, for distribution through the school system and other social service agencies.
So, please come and pray with us and bring a coat for the collection!
