We pray that those of you who have already left New York have arrived home safely and without incident. For those who are still here attending the second week of UNCSW62, please note that as of right now, the Church Center for the United Nations WILL BE OPEN today – Wednesday, 21 March. Please share this information with your delegations and use wisdom when considering your commute into the area. Official CSW events have not yet been cancelled, so WE WILL GATHER as scheduled for worship and prayer for those who are able to make it to Chapel. ALL are welcome! We will continue to monitor official updates and keep everyone informed.
As we face the pending storm, let us remember in prayer those who have no warm or safe shelter/dwelling place to rest.
