Service of Support and Healing for All Impacted by Sexualized Violence
First Congregational Church of Martinez, UCC
1229 Court Street, Martinez, CA

A year into the #MeToo movement the public debate about sexual harassment and abuse continues. This morning we’ll turn to Jesus for guidance on a way forward which seeks the healing of all impacted, regardless of gender or experience. We will strive to create a safe space for truth and hope. Children are welcome to attend the first part of the service. For the second half, we provide supervised care. Everyone is welcome to the service and to stay for fellowship afterward.

Loving God,
We turn to You for Your care and safety, healing and forgiveness.
We stand in Your Light asking for all of us to be well tended.
We offer up prayers for those who are hurting, angry, scared or numb,
including those in our households and ourselves.
We ask for the goodness in our community,
the loving kindness You have instilled within us, to rise.
May we practice the ways of truth and healing,
showing great compassion for those who are suffering.
In the name of all that is holy, AMEN.
