Walk for Jesus set for Saturday
The Appling County Ministerial Alliance encourages all Christians in Appling County to unite together as one Body on Saturday morning, May 7, at 9:00 a.m. to begin a Celebration Walk beginning at the Northside Park (old Jr. High) and ending at the Baxley Church of God with a prayer and worship service, which should end around 11:00 a.m. The walk will begin with prayer by Rev. Johnny Blair of First African Baptist Church and stops will be made along the way to pray at the courthouse, hospital and board of education and finishing at the Church of God.
Come and bring your flags and banners and proclaim the name of Jesus Christ over Appling County! Bring your children and babes in strollers and wear your Christian t-shirts. A trailer with chairs will be available for those who are unable to walk the distance.
The “Walk For Jesus” brings Christians of every denomination, age, and color into the streets to celebrate what Jesus has done in our lives and to pray and ask God’s blessing on our city. It is nothing more and nothing less than a joyous celebration of our Lord Jesus Christ. Everyone is welcome to attend.
For those who would like to park at the Church of God, First Assembly Church will have their van on hand to carry folks to the starting point at the Northside Park (from 8:15 a.m. - 8:45 a.m.).
