Back to school Prayer event huge success

Local churches, youth groups, and administrators converged on the grounds of Citizen’s Bank Lodge Sunday night to offer blessings and thanksgiving for the new school year.  Over 100 attended the community wide event.  

Merian Shack Milton had some awesome words to offer returning students, parents, and administrators for the coming year.  Milton said we (Jackson County) come together as a community when tragedy strikes and she wanted the community to come together for something good.  With the start of the new school year, church leaders and administrators joined in prayer for faculty, staff, students, parents, and caregivers for a safe year, a learning year, and a year of peace within our school system.  

The area churches were well represented with Jeff Powell from First Baptist Church, Linda Ellis from St. Joseph AME Church, Nathan Atwood from First Methodist Church, David Green from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, John Wamsley from the first Presbyterian Church, and Steven Subel from Welcome Assembly of God Church all in attendance.  School administrators were scattered throughout the grounds, praying with students and parents, music from the always-popular Royce Reagan and Ben Crowson and First Baptist Church.   Alisa Garlo gave the closing devotion before Royce and Ben closed out the evening with music. 

Monday morning, in an interview with the TIMES, Milton deemed the event a success, “It was great!  The community responded and everyone seemed to enjoy it.”
