All Christians in Appling County are encouraged to unite together as one Body on Saturday morning, May 4, at 9:00 a.m. to begin a Celebration Walk beginning at the Ernest Parker 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 the 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 with the service.
Come and bring your flags and banners and let us 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 their 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 leave your vehicles at the Church of God, Baxley Christian Center will have their bus on hand to carry folks to the starting point at the Northside Park (from 8:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.).
For more information contact Pastor Steve Statum, Appling Ministerial Alliance Chair, Pastor Johnny Blair, Pastor Lamar Lee or Wanda Stone.
