Soliciting Prayers for Two Church Fires in Meridian District


Greetings Mississippi United Methodists,

This week, two United Methodist churches in the Meridian District experienced fires—Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Meridian and Enterprise United Methodist Church in Enterprise.

The fire at Tabernacle United Methodist Church happened January 10 and thankfully, that blaze did not cause any structural damage. Enterprise United Methodist Church was engulfed in flames early this morning.

At this time, we ask that you unite in prayer with the rest of the Mississippi Conference and lift up the pastors, Rev. Sidney Luvene of Tabernacle UMC and Rev. Charles Waddell of Enterprise UMC, the congregations and the surrounding communities that they serve.

May God’s grace abound,

The Mississippi Conference of The United Methodist Church

The Mississippi Annual Conference—empowered by love, generosity, justice and apprenticeship—forms spiritual leaders, faith communities and connections so more disciples of Jesus Christ transform the world.
