Community should be proud of local Prayer PatriotsPublished 9:12am Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Mark your calendars now for two special musical programs to be held at Green Creek First Baptist Church in December. The children of the church will perform on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 6 p.m., and the adults program will begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 23. Visitors are welcome.
Aren’t we proud of the many Prayer Patriots of America, who gave of their valuable time and talents to pray for our country?
Last month, about a hundred ministers and Christian laymen gathered each week at the Philadelphia Presbyterian Church in Landrum to pray. Dr. Alastair Walker, former pastor at First Baptist Church in Spartanburg, organized this community event, saying, “It seems, as a nation, we are turning away from what we have always been: a God-fearing nation.”
When Dr. Walker talked to numerous pastors of different denominations who also had concerns, he decided to organize the united prayer group. That resulted in ministers and church members from a number of different denominations coming together for these community prayer meetings. Thank you, Dr. Walker.
