The United Methodist Council of Bishops has invited each annual conference to designate one day to hold a 24-hour prayer vigil for General Conference. These prayer vigils began on Jan. 1 and are continuing through the 131 days from Jan. 1 to May 10, the opening day of General Conference. Because The United Methodist Church has 131 annual conferences throughout the world, each annual conference is able to take one day.
Bishop Young Jin Cho selected Sunday, April 10, to be the day for the Virginia Conference prayer vigil. Central UMC will pray from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Our chapel will be open for prayer and you're encouraged to pray wherever you are if you can't make it here to pray. A prayer guide is available to download. See file below.
Please continue to hold our delegates in prayer from April 10 until General Conference concludes on May 20.
