“Get up and pray so that you may not enter into temptation,” (Luke 22:46). We believe that God changes us when we pray, and that God both hears us and speaks to us. So we pray a lot at Central. The pastor compiles all the joys and concerns for the church and distributes that list through a weekly email. If you have a specific prayer request or if you are interested receiving the weekly prayer list, please let the pastor know.
