This Sunday, Kiwanis members want congregations to pray for schools
Jul 28, 2012 12:00 am
This Sunday, July 29, the Kiwanis Club of Lebanon will be leading the way for the 14th annual observance of "A Day of Prayer for Our Schools" throughout Wilson County.
To help our children begin a new school year safely, the Kiwanis Club has invited all churches in the community to participate by devoting a portion of their worship time to special prayers for the safety of all our children, teachers and others involved in the operation of the schools.
"We believe that the concerted prayers of the people of the community will have a positive influence on the state of a new school year," said Lebanon Kiwanis member Eddie Callis. "We realize that each congregation has its own traditions and we do not presume to suggest how individual churches should participate in this project. We hope that each church will devote some portion of their worship time to prayers seeking God's help in keeping our children safe at school."
Callis noted that Kiwanians realize that the start of a new school year is a stressful time, but the organization feels the day of prayer can have a positive impact upon the community and will "help foster an environment of tolerance and understanding as a new school year begins."
