World Day of Prayer set Friday

March 03, 2003

Five area churches and two nursing homes will participate in the World Day of Prayer on Friday.

This year's theme is Holy Spirit, Fill Us.

A group of women of Lebanon from three Christian families - Catholic, Evangelical and Orthodox - prepared the worship service that alludes to images found in the Song of Solomon, naming Lebanon and its cedars.

The services will be held at:

  • St. Paul's Lutheran/UCC Church on U.S. 40 east of Clear Spring, at 7 p.m.

  • St. Peter's (Beards) Lutheran Church near Smithsburg at 7:30 p.m.

  • Downsville Church of the Brethren at 7 p.m. for the Williamsport area.

  • First Christian Church, 1345 Potomac Ave., Hagerstown, at 7 p.m.

  • Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., for the Cascade area, at 7 p.m.

  • Services are also planned at Fahrney-Keedy Home near Boonsboro and at Homewood of Williamsport.
