Sunday School teacher and member, Todd Manning, had the idea of getting the houses worship in town together, at the same time, to pray. Nothing more, nothing less. One act by one body concentrated in lifting to the divine the concerns of the people.
Well, our church leaders took that idea to the town and to the clergy association. Our clergy organized the meetings, wrote the scripts, assigned prayers to the different clergy, and helped nudge the process along. In the end we were blessed as a town to have the immeasurable talents of leaders from Temple Emanu-El, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, First Congregational Church, First Baptist Church, The Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity, and First United Methodist Church to join in with their congregations. Together over 400 members of the Westfield community prayed together last Monday 3/30@3:30pm.
What started as a kernel of an idea in our community is blossoming into new ideas and new directions as the local clergy are talking about other ways to connect in this time, and other ways to serve our community. Thanks to all who helped PCW lead in this time.

The Presbyterian Church in Westfield continues to burn as a light in the darkness as our community weathers this fearsome storm of illness. Our reach of care continues to extend far beyond our immediate borders. You can help us make a real impact in the lives of others by joining in our work through your time, your talents, and also in the fruits of your labors.
