The Vespers Service

The Wednesday Evening Prayer Service is also called “Vespers.”

From the earliest days of the Church, Christian worshipers saw the rising of the sun and lighting of the evening lamps as symbolic of Christ’s victory over death. Additional hours of the day were also designated as significant moments of celebrating the Christ’s presence in the world. The Orders of Daily Praise & Prayer enable United Methodists to celebrate daily the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This service follows an ancient pattern of congregational prayer, focusing upon the praise of God and prayer for God’s creation rather than the proclaiming of the Word.

During this service, we participated in scripted (liturgical), guided prayers for our family, congregation, community, Church, and world. This service is normally about 15 minutes long, and is a great way to be renewed in the middle of the week!
