Each session will begin with a short time of music led by Rev. Randy Seedorff.

It is the intention of the district prayer personnel to give each pastor time to rest, reflect, and pray. While we hope everyone will take advantage of the sessions, monastic prayer schedule, etc. we do want to encourage those who need solitude to utilize this place for that. If you will be taking times of seclusion and/or silence please simply let Pastor Nancy Cantrell know.
