SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts Wellspring United Methodist Church announces a “Worship In Pink” Hope and Healing service on Saturday October 12 in Lawrence Hall at the Trinity Episcopal Church at 440 Main Street in Shrewsbury. A free soup and bread meal will be served at 6pm in the Fellowship Hall and the service will start at 7pm in Lawrence Hall.
A few years ago, the Susan G. Komen organization launched a “Worship in Pink” program to invite everyone to join in the fight to end breast cancer. Worship in Pink is a grassroots effort with local synagogues, churches, and mosques nationwide to educate their respective members on breast health and breast cancer.
Wellspring United Methodist Church will be hosting our own Worship in Pink Hope and Healing service, or an even wider “A Splash of Colors In Ribbons” service. Cancer affects millions of people worldwide and does not only include breast cancer (pink ribbon) but also pancreatic cancer (purple), lung cancer (clear), ovarian cancer (teal), brain cancer (grey), prostate cancer (light blue), bladder cancer (yellow), childhood cancer (gold), leukemia (orange), colon cancer (royal blue), melanoma (black), kidney cancer (green), liver cancer (emerald green), lymphoma (lime), general cancer awareness (lavender) and more.
During the service, survivors, patients, family and friends will testify of the power of God in their lives throughout treatment, recovery or while waiting to go home to Jesus. A well-known local harpist will play during worship.
All donations will go to the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen or any cancer organizations of the attendee’s choice.
All are invited for this vibrant non-denominational service featuring praise music, prayer, teaching, testimony, and the power of God.
