Because of the recent aggression of Russia into Ukraine, Trinity Ayton held a prayer service on Wednesday, March 2, prior to the Ash Wednesday service at 7:00 p.m. This come and go service was open for the community to come to pray and light candles.
Pastor Heather Spencer- Stoltz began with prayer followed by music and a slide presentation about the Ukraine. A table was displayed with bread, sunflower seeds, flags and tea lights for lighting. The service ended with quiet contemplation and more prayers from pastor Heather.
Participants were invited to donate to CLWR to assist with the great need of the refugees. Thanks to Sharon Machina who operated the new, recently installed technology, during the prayer service. People were invited to take an artificial sunflower home as a reminder of this service and its meaning.
The service can be viewed on Prayers for Ukraine – Trinity Ayton on Youtube for people unable to attend.
