Live Dead Concert of Prayer | Sunday, April 12 | Sanctuary

Central Assembly will host the first ever LIVE|DEAD Concert of Prayer on Sunday, April 12 from 6:00-7:30pm. This will be a unified time of prayer and praise driven by scripture. It will be a powerful night as Omar Beiler, Greg Beggs, and others lead us in strategic prayer for the Arab world. Intercession is key; please plan to attend. Share and multiply your passion by inviting others to join. Please be in prayer for this gathering.

LIVE DEAD PRAY is the prayer strategy for LIVE|DEAD designed to aim prayerful hearts of believers of any age or denomination at unreached people groups throughout the world. This strategy organizes those who pray, stabilizes how they pray, and multiplies more to pray for the unreached and the teams that are reaching them.


Wednesday Night Bible Study | April 22 | 6:30p | MPH

Wednesday Night Bible Study began a new series on April 8. Since we will host the SOMO District Ordination Service on Wednesday, April 15, our series will resume on Wednesday, April 22. The purpose of this series of studies is to respond to current events, especially those surrounding ISIS, Boko Haram, etc., and the impact all of this has on many people relative to Islam. Extremism seems to rule the airwaves on the part of all sides, factions, and points of view. We are looking for a biblical approach and a practical understanding of both Islam and current issues which will help us arrive at a good worldview about it all.
