Prayer and Scripture on the Square

Make plans to join us on the Morganton town square Thursday, June 18th at 7 p.m. where we will be reading scripture and joining together in prayer for our community, state and nation. In this time of COVID and racial unrest the best thing we can do as Christians is to pray. Therefore, please attend and encourage your church family to join us. Again, this will take place at the town square in Morganton and will last less than an hour. This will not be a time for signs and protests; only scripture and prayers as we seek peace and unity for our city, county, state and nation.
