The Annual Light a Candle for Children 40-Day Prayer Vigil started earlier this month. Information packets are available online or by calling Connie Metts in Disciples Home Missions at 888-346-2631. The Light a Candle Prayer Vigil leads up to the Children’s Defense Fund’s Children’s Sabbaths Observance, Oct. 17-19.
The theme of the national Children’s Sabbaths Observance is "When Will We Hear Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Call to End Poverty in America?" For more information on the Light a Candle for Children Prayer Vigil and Children’s Sabbaths, visit: www.discipleshomemissions.org/FamilyandChildren/candle.htm
