Prayer Candles

We light prayer candles at the front of the sanctuary on the first Sunday of months where we do not celebrate Communion. People can choose to light a candle of celebration or concern, and can announce who or what the candle is for if they wish. The minister stands off to the side to offer personal prayers for anyone who wishes, and holds the whole congregation in prayer as the candles are lit.

Generally speaking, during the school year the children are usually not in the sanctuary when the candles are lit.
