May 7, 2020 - Last year community leaders, pastors, and lots of just plain folks gathered to form a human prayer chain around our historic courthouse on the National Day of Prayer. We won't be able to gather this year but you are encouraged to pause, wherever you are, at noon on Thursday, May 7 to pray.
Lots of things are different this year, but some things remain the same - prayer is powerful and prayer is needed. So take a moment on Thursday to pray for our city, our county, our country, our world. Thanks and God bless you and yours.
