 Outdoor Advent Prayer Chain

            During the season of Advent we will invite church members, community members and neighbors to create an outdoor prayer chain.  Outside you will notice a box that has Tyvek paper strips and permanent markers.  Please write on the strips prayers that you have for this season before Christmas:  Prayers for the world, prayers for yourself, prayers for others, prayers for healing, prayers for the nations, prayers for peace, prayers of thanksgiving, prayers for anything that is on your heart and mind.  After you have written your prayer, please loop them together to add to the chain.  Over the season of Advent it is our hope that these prayers will grow and grow into a beautiful prayer chain of unity.  

Advent Mosaic Art Project

Here's the finished product:
