World Day of Prayer is Friday, March 3, 2017. Join the community for worship at the Church of the Good Shepherd, located at 315 Highland Terrace, Pitman. The first organized “day of prayer for the world” was held in Canada on January 9, 1920 with the United States following right behind. Services were meant to recognize the critical role of prayer in mission work and call for world peace through worldwide mission work. Now, hundreds of thousands of women, men, youth, and children from around the world and in every region gather to collectively worship on the first Friday in March. Service at the Church of the Good Shepherd begins at 1 PM with light refreshments to follow. All are welcome.
