Prayer Circle Around the Jail

This year we want to increase participation in the community-wide prayer circle to over 500 people. Can you help spread the word and bring people of all ages to pray? This year’s date is Friday, September 13, at 5:30 pm (prayer starts at 6 pm) for our community-wide prayer around the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center (jail) [201 N. Church Street, Winston-Salem]. Join us in prayer asking God to touch the hearts of those inside. Please ask your friends to join you, as this event is open to everyone.
