What’s right about Heritage Presbyterian Church?

Heritage Presbyterian Church — Acworth, Georgia

Last summer, as Heritage Presbyterian Church continued to worship virtually, an interactive prayer station appeared in front of the sanctuary entrance. Inspired by our summer worship series, “Unraveled” from A Sanctified Art, artistic volunteers prepared a large loom with strips of cloth hung from a clothesline. Members and friends were invited to write their prayers on the cloth and then weave them into a growing spiral of prayer as a tangible reminder that God continues to weave us together in love, even from a distance. Week by week, young and old added joys and concerns as the loom grew. The weekly prayers of the people were recorded in this space, lifting them as an act of communal worship. And when the summer was over, a small circle of Presbyterian Women transformed the circular weaving into a prayer bowl that now sits in the narthex, ready to receive the next prayers that are offered.
