Pray the Miracle: Take the Next Step Challenge

We want to help you “Pray the Miracle” this year for 2 people close to you but far from God. To do that we created the Weekly Evangelism Challenge. You select whether you will do the challenge for 13, 26, or 40 weeks. Each week you get an action step to help you stay focused on your goal throughout the year. Go to bethanycentral.org/praythemiracle to sign up for the challenge.
