Prayer Vigils

The Nederland Community Church continues to respond to the need for racial healing in our individual hearts, our neighborhoods, and our country. One of the new ways we are doing that, is by offering a monthly short prayer vigil. Our first one, open to all for lament and encouragement, is Tuesday 27 Oct, 6 pm, on Zoom. (

NCPC has created a Social Justice Working Group, which has, over the past few months, held deep conversations about personal and systematic anti-racism, analyzed our church investments to ensure they align with socially responsible values, researched local businesses owned by BIPOC, brought an educational event to Nederland, and we are preparing an racism audit to analyze the biases that exist in simply how we function as an organization. Now, to ground our sense of justice in the holy threads that have weaved through all civilization, we are meeting to sing and pray and share and listen.

Vigils are about creating peace in our heart, so that we can remain vigilant for the chaos in the world. So, we invite you to prepare a candle in your home space, and to join us with a prayerful attitude – and prayer can mean pain, gratitude, awe, silence, or anything that your deepest soul brings to the source of life, whatever your faith tradition.
