THURSDAY, July 29th

24 Hours of Prayer

The 29th is our Day! We cover the entire day (12:00am - 11:59pm) in prayer for our community and church family.

 

We are a praying church and would gladly pray for you. 

The City Church

We are a part of the larger church in Eugene/Springfield and Lane County! There are 40+ other churches who pray on the other days of the month. Since May 2015 our community has been prayed for continuously (24/7/365)... and we have seen answers to our prayers!
