This year’s service was prepared by the World Day of Prayer Committee of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The theme is “I Know the Plans I Have for You,” inspired by Jeremiah 29:1-14.

Lutheran Church of the Cross will begin the service with worship, including music and traditional Irish dancers from the Hudson Irish Dance Academy in Wayzata, followed by a time of fellowship where traditional foods from England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be served and artifacts and information about that region will be available.

A Jeremiah Bible study on hope and the future will take place at 10:30 a.m.


All are welcome at the service.
