People all over the U.S. will gather May 3 to pray for America on the following topics: family, education, church, media, military and government.

Dr. Jack Timothy Mathis, pastor of First Baptist, will deliver the national prayer common to all events across the country, with attendees joining the reading in unison.

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. This year’s theme is “Unity,” based upon Ephesians 4:3: “Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding your selves together with peace.” National Day of Prayer organizers believe “prayer can bring people together and build bridges between opposing persons and even political parties.”

If you cannot attend the event, the organizers request that everyone pray at 7 p.m. on May 3, wherever they are.

Singings, music 

Alum Springs  First Church of God, 3758 Alum Springs Rd., will host the singing group “South of Heaven” this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Built in 1987 and dedicated on January 17, 1988, our “Mighty Moller” has served our church as an effective worship instrument.  Albin has recorded  a CD on our organ of some of your “Favorite Hymns of Faith” and these CDs  will be given out the evening of the concert.  Invite friends and family to the concert and stay for our reception following.
