Local pastors will lead a community prayer event Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. at Myles-Wimberly Park in Barnesville. “This morning of prayer will bring us together to pray for life, healing and the needs of our people,” organizer Chris Hightower said.
Hightower said the impact of COVID-19 and other community problems prompted the ministers to act. Pastors speaking at the event include Keith Battle, Eddie F. Collier, Nancy Dadd, Jimmy Lyons, James C. Marable, Mia C. McGee, Walter Mitchell and Waylon Knight.
In conjunction with the morning prayer, the health department will be offering free COVID vaccinations at the E.P. Roberts Center from 9-11 a.m. Breakfast, also at the center, will be served from 9-10 a.m.
