The United Methodist Church of Summit is offering a variety of monthly meditation and prayer services, including:

Participants call a specific conference call number at 7:45 am, and the Senior Pastor, Shawn Callender Hogan, will guide everyone in a form of prayer that is silent and individual, even as all are collectively praying for those 15 minutes. 

Interested? Contact the church office 908-277-1700 or UMCofSummit@gmail.com for further information and for the conference call details.

Taize Prayer Services                                                         

Wednesday, November 1 and Wednesday, December 6,  7 p.m. in the Chapel (Deforest Avenue entrance)

Come on the first Wednesday night of each month to the Chapel for a special time of quiet meditation. Could you use a small corner of space to be quiet and still? Do you hunger for the chance to be in prayer with no expectations on you? Are your days full, rushed… do you have a lot on your mind? This is the place for you!

On these evenings we will have a prayer service in the Taize tradition – which involves silence, prayer, and songs that are simple, rhythmic and soothing. 

Come and let the Spirit peacefully enfold you.
