18th Annual Celebration of Prayer

COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS THROUGH SPIRITUAL GROWTH Join us as we bring the community together for our 18th annual YMCA Celebration of Prayer on April 5. We will be hearing from our special guest speaker, Gigi Graham. She wants to share a message of faith and inspiration with you and nearly a thousand community and business leaders during Central Florida’s prayer breakfast. The celebration takes place from 7:00 a.m. – 8:15 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Orlando located at 3000 S. John Young Parkway. Gigi, is the eldest daughter of Christian evangelist Billy Graham. She is also an award-winning author and inspirational speaker. She is the author of Currents of the Heart, Passing It On and A Quiet Knowing.  Gigi’s faith grew in large part because of her Christian upbringing. Her father, Billy Graham, preached the Gospel to more people than ever in history. She uses her varied experiences both good and bad to stress the fact that we cannot look to anyone or anything to be to us what only Jesus can be.   Although she comes from a well-known Christian family, Gigi feels that like the rest of us, she herself is a work in progress. She says she comes from an ordinary family who share the same problems very family has but that for some reason was chosen by a wonderful God to serve Him in an unusual way.   The Y’s reason for being remains unchanged, and we are committed to strengthening the community by connecting individuals, inspiring leaders and providing community solutions through spiritual growth.   “The Celebration of Prayer is a unique opportunity to celebrate the YMCA Christian heritage and mission that has guided our organization for over 150 years,” states YMCA of Central Florida President and CEO Jim Ferber.   Everyone is welcome as we celebrate the arrival of the Easter season. Come and be a part of our mission by putting Christian principles into practice.   Tables are available for $250 and individual seats are $35 each. Please call Debbie Korba at (407) 895-4296 or email at [email protected] to reserve your ticket.   Celebrate with us.
