On Saturday, April 7, the Shekinah Presbyterian Ministry in Marlborough, MA held its inaugural worship service. An outreach to Brazilian immigrants, the Shekinah ministries are Presbyterian in structure and government in a spirited worship style.
Vilmarie was invited to welcome the first members of the congregation and pray for them. Cindy was invited, as the Presbytery leader, to pray for the lay leaders and preach. We were honored to be present, to see a room filled with people celebrating a new opportunity to worship within the PC(USA), with arms raised high and shouts of “Glória a Deus!”
