 4. Prayer Walk - #2 Maysville First Responders

Prayer Walk- We will go to several places where 1st responders (Police Dept., Fire Dept., Sheriff's Office, etc.) are housed and have prayer outside the facilities.  We will also go to the hospital and pray for their staff.  All communities in the area are encouraged to take a small group to Fire Stations and have prayer.  For those who are in Maysville, we will meet at Central UMC and drive to the various facilities and pray. The church van holds 12 people so, if more than 12 participate they will need to provide their own transportation.
