INTER-DENOMINATIONAL SERVICE ON NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
Thursday, May 2, the Greenville Ministerial Alliance sponsored an inter-denominational service on the courthouse steps as part of the National Day of Prayer. Pastor Carl Brannon, Ministerial Alliance President and Pastor of Discipleship and Outreach at Greenville Free Methodist Church, said their desire is to engage their hearts and minds with those who are praying or singing and to pay attention to words in scripture and song, even if they are very familiar. Pastor Brannon said we are blessed to live in a nation where a religious group may gather publicly. Despite these blessings, there are still many things going on in our culture that need prayer.
