7am-7pm - Pray along on Facebook

At 7am, we’ll begin with Bishop Loya, who will help frame this day and our call as followers of Jesus.

Throughout the day, at the top of each hour, a different ECMN-er will be sharing a prayer on the ECMN Facebook page.

Each of these videos will be premiered on Facebook, which means that you can head over to the ECMN Facebook Page right now to see these scheduled prayer videos - you can click the star icon next to ‘interested’, and you’ll get pinged as the video goes live to watch it.

8pm - Compline over Zoom

At 8pm, as the polls close, all of ECMN is invited to participate in a service of Compline over Zoom. You can register for this gathering by clicking here.

As followers of Jesus, one of the most powerful tools we have is prayer. Prayer changes us, prayer offers hope and connection, and Jesus says that prayer matters. However you choose to observe, it's important that we, as followers of Jesus, center ourselves in the wider story of the movement of God in us and in the world.
