30 Congregations for 30 Days of Prayer
June 1 is our specific date and May 13-June 10 is the 30 day period of prayer
MPUMC is committing to being 1 of 30 congregations to pray for our First Responders and for our neighbors in our city and county. MPUMC’s specifically assigned date is June 1.
Our church is joining other congregations to pray for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) and other public safety officials and our beloved city. We believe that prayer will create a foundation from which to face and address the challenges ahead with wisdom and courage. This movement of churches praying is due to the rate of violence in Charlotte being up. The rate of homicides is up. And, as the people of God, we are not immune. Mass shootings have become a recurring part of American life and religious institutions a recurring setting. As people of faith, we must not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with goodwill.
