School shootings are becoming increasingly common all over the country. As a church, we have become burdened to tak action with our best weapon -- prayer. We want our teachers and children to know that we love them and are praying for them, therefore our church family would like to invite you to join us for a community-wide Prayer Walk on Sunday, April 8 at 2:00pm, as we pray for our schools in the Southside community. This Walk will begin at Southside High School and end at Southside Elementary School, and will be escorted by the Southside Police Department. Afterwards, our church will provide two vans to shuttle participants back to their vehicles at the high school.
We have made flyers (click here) and created a Facebook Event (click here), which we encourage you to use as a way of promoting the walk throughout our entire community. Our hope is that as many people as possible will participate.
If you are unable to participate, please keep this event in your prayers. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Pastor Carrie via e-mail or by calling the Church Office (256.442.7080).
We look forward to partnering with you in prayer for the safety of our schools.
