On Wednesday nights at Central faithful prayer warriors gather to intercede for our church, community, mission partners and issues all over the world. (As a side note: all are welcome to join in at 6:30 on Wednesday evenings on the third floor of the Education Building to be part of this vital ministry)
Whether you are able to come or not we want the whole body of Central to be able to join in unity to pray for these things. That's why we are making them available here on a weekly basis. Let's join in prayer together and see how God will move in powerful ways!
