This Week's Memory Verse 

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” - Acts: 1:8

Thought For the Week 

"I know we like it in the upper room but the upper room is not a permanent destination on our journey it is just a place where we connect with God and God’s people to be refueled. We cannot Advance the Kingdom of God while we are safe and secure in the upper room."

  • Prayers for the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference.

Hughes Memorial UMC Weekly Blog - Tuesday, May 19th

This Week's Memory Verse 

"I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." - Psalm 27:13

Thought For the Week 

"Learning to see God, to hear him, is the real object of prayer. Its major objective is not to inform him or bend him to our purposes. The result of praying is to attenuate us to God's will and God's work going on all around us. If we ask God to show us what he sees, he will! And it will change us."

 Community Prayers

  • Prayers for all of our members who are in the hospital or homebound.
  • Prayers for all children as the school year comes to a close.
  • Prayers for anyone who is hungry, homeless or hurting.
