At the Y, we still believe that faith in the power of prayer is at the heart of a strong community.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
The YMCA of Greater Charlotte is hosting its 26th Annual YMCA Community Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday, April 30, at the Crown Ballroom at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The inspirational event will include a message about the power of prayer from N.C. Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker. Doors open at 6:30 a.m. and the program begins at 7:15 a.m.
The Y is expecting close to 2000 attendees. A Charlotte tradition, the YMCA Community Prayer Breakfast is usually held on the National Day of Prayer but organizing committee leaders shifted the event to an earlier date so that Y branches can offer neighbors a variety of prayer activities across Charlotte on the national observance on May 2.
“One hundred sixty years ago, the Y was founded as a refuge of Bible study and prayer for young men seeking escape from the hazards life on the streets of London,” says YMCA of Greater Charlotte Representative Molly Thompson. “At the Y, we still believe that faith in the power of prayer is at the heart of a strong community.”
The YMCA Community Prayer Breakfast is free but registration is requested.
