THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Woodlands United Methodist Church is partnering with churches nationwide to host a webinar and a prayer gathering in response to the tragic death of George Floyd and the ensuing events around the country. We invite the community to join us for both events.

The webinar hosted The Woodlands UMC and Impact Church of Atlanta, Georgia is planned for Thursday, June 4 at 4:00 p.m. CDT on “Lamenting. Listening.

Following the webinar, the church, together with Impact Church of The Woodlands, will lead an outdoor Prayer Gathering for Justice and for Peace. All participants will meet at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 4 at the The Woodlands UMC Fairway for a time of reflection and prayer.

We invite the community to join us for this Prayer Gathering. We will be following protocols and best practices as we are mindful of the continuing coronavirus concern.
