Congregations are asked to share 9/11 resource materials

As the 10th year anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States approaches, a number of organizations and churches are sponsoring special commemorative activities. University Christian Church in Ft. Worth, Texas has organized, "9-11-11 Hands of Hope" – A weekend to honor the past, and to celebrate what is coming. Activities include a 12-hour prayer vigil with multi-sensory stations and resources. Morning worship services that day will incorporate a litany or prayer and a children’s sermon.

A special evening worship will culminate with a large concert involving several different choirs, that will end with statements of hope about service in the world.

If your congregation is involved in planning resources for Sept. 11 observances, please send those resources to: news@cm.disciples.org so that they may be shared with the larger church.
