SERVICE OF LAMENT AND HOPE

ON DEC. 9 AT FIRST CHRISTIAN

The First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is planning a Service of Lament and Hope on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. The congregation is offering an invitation to gather, recognizing that even in this season of hope it is a time when many find it challenging to give full expression of the joy.

If the season finds you struggling with the loss of a meaningful relationship, a current illness, a personal difficulty, or even if you “can’t quite put your finger on it,” you may find this service of stillness and light to be meaningful, according to church officials.

The church is located at 2109 W. Highway 377 in Granbury and all are welcome.

THE CHURCH CONTINUES

DAILY PRAYER MEETINGS

The Church at Granbury, which engaged in 40 days of daily prayer for the nation prior to the recent national election, will continue 9 a.m. daily prayer meetings beginning Dec. 2.

“Praying for our country is more important now than ever before,” said C.C. Risenhoover, the church’s senior pastor. “But, our prayer meetings will not be single focused. We will be praying for people who haven’t experienced God’s salvation in Christ, who are ill, bereaved, in need or hurting in any way. We invite everyone to make known to us their prayer requests, and these prayer meetings are open to anyone who wants to attend.”

The pastor said people can call in their prayer requests to 817-326-5501, email them to [email protected], or mail them to 4900 Sonterra Court, Granbury 76049.

The prayer meetings are part of an event larger evangelistic effort by the church that is being called “Operation Urgent Witness.”

The Church at Granbury meets at 4900 Sonterra Court.
