Special Area-wide Worship Service:
Breathing Smoke ... Finding Hope
As wildfires rage, we add to our prayers yet another crisis. Our individual prayers are crucial, but our corporate prayers are needed, too. Join United Methodists from across the Greater Northwest Area in a time of prayer, reflection, and praise in online worship this Sunday, September 20, at 3 p.m. Alaska Time.

Voices from across the Area will lead us through music, liturgy, and deep breaths amid the fire, smoke, ash, anxiety, and grief of this time. You will have the opportunity to offer financial support to disaster response efforts in each annual conference as you see images of our earlier commitments to be good stewards of the earth and our current efforts to love our neighbors.  

Denomination-wide Practice
Update Regarding In-Person Worship
We will continue to meet virtually for worship and small groups via Zoom and Facebook.

Thank you all for your continued participation online. Wash your hands, wear a mask, stick to your bubbles, stay home, and stay safe! Let's keep the numbers in Homer low so that we can resume worship as soon as possible!
