Prayer Flags – A Gift for UPAVIM

Sunday, June 21
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Wednesday, June 17
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Express your hopes, prayers and dreams for the people of the world by creating a Prayer Flag. Adults and children of DGFUMC are invited to make a small flag that after flying outside our church, will be delivered as a gift to the women and children of UPAVIM by the DGFUMC delegation visiting Guatemala City in July.

It is believed that prayers on the flags are lifted to God as they flutter in the wind extending happiness, good will and peace to all peoples of the world.

Making a prayer flag is an opportunity for everyone to express through pictures and words their personal sentiments for the world. No artistic skill required. All materials will be furnished. Examples will be on display for inspiration. 

Come to the parlor to make a prayer flag on Sunday June 14 or 21 anytime between 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or Wednesday evening, June 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Children in Messy Church will also make prayer flags on June 14.

Sunday, June 14, 2015 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Sunday, June 21, 2015 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
