Global Impact Sunday

November 12

Every year we take the second Sunday of November to look at what God is doing around the world. This year, as a part of the C&MA family, we’re focusing on Going to the Hard Places in Lexington and the World.

On Sunday morning, our Pastor of Outreach and Missions Tyrone Vinegar will be sharing how we can reach the world as we minister here in Lexington. We will also hear from some of our own who are living on mission in our community as they prepare to go overseas.

On Sunday night from 6:00 to 8:00pm, join us for dinner as we hear from our Cross-cultural Partners via video about what they are doing and how we can be praying for them. Phil James of Trans World Radio and Ron Brown of Perspectives USA will also be sharing with us in person. Registration is open until November 9.

This is a family-friendly event. There will be special videos from the kids of our international workers and a special time of prayer geared specifically for kids!

24 Hour Prayer

November 13 and 14

Sign up for one or two 30-minute time slots from 12:00pm on Monday, November 13 to 12:00pm on Tuesday, November 14 as we join with other churches in Central Kentucky to pray for our city and nation. Pray individually, as a family, or with a small group either here at the church or from home. A prayer guide and journal will be available.

As a church, we value and champion expectant prayer. Join us in this important work!
