I hope, Lord. My whole being hopes, and I wait for God’s promise.

 

Psalm 130:5 (CEB)

Camp Hill UMC is a church that believes in God as a Trinity—three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are a community of ordinary people in the presence of an extraordinary God learning to love as we are loved. In that love, we welcome all to share in the life and ministry of this community of faith. Our welcome knows no boundaries. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice. We interpret that scripture together as a community, believing the church to be the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. 

 

Ideas for prayer are shared for each day of December. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
