World Day of

Prayer set

WEIRTON - Church Women United of Weirton will celebrate World Day of Prayer at 1 p.m. March 1 at the First Christian Church on Main Street.

The theme is "Matthew 25 - I Was a Stranger and You Welcomed Me," observing church communities are called to care for the hungry, thirsty, strangers, sick, naked and impoverished. The program colors are dark and light red, orange and yellow.

Each year, the World Day of Prayer service is developed in a different country, and, in 2013, the French World Day of Prayer Committee developed the theme.

People of all faiths are invited to attend the service, which will be handicapped accessible.

A fellowship tea will be held immediately following the service. Project Chair Diane Pastoric announced, as the World Day of Prayer project, Church Women will collect household cleaning products, bleach and paper goods.

Program Coordinator Joyce Summers and the first-year delegates will make preparations at 10 a.m. Feb. 28 at the church. The choir will meet with Music Coordinator Wadeanne Nardo and Choir Director Mary Ellen Groves immediately after practice.

Unit President Karen Tate stated Church Women members gathered together to celebrate God's promises and has chosen "Standing on the Promise of God" as her theme for 2013.
