The inaugural “Northeast Kansas 2020 Healing Prayer March” will be held in Overbrook, Kan., this Saturday, September 26, from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
“America is in trouble. Our communities are hurting. Our people are divided, and there is fear and uncertainty all around us,” said Loretta Harder, event coordinator. “Let’s join together for the most important thing: prayer!”
The march is in conjunction Franklin Graham’s Prayer March 2020 event taking place in Washington, D.C., the same day.
The Overbrook event begins at the host church, Grace Community Church in Overbrook, 310 E. Eighth St., with a biscuits and gravy breakfast, and juice (free-will offering), followed by sign creation, live praise music, and prayer from 9:00 a.m. until approximately 10:30 a.m.
“The event is centered around praying for the healing of America, our communities, families, and leaders – local, state, and national,” said Harder.
Leading the event in prayer will be Elvin Dillard, pastor of Grace Community Church in Overbrook. Pastor Scott Perkins, known in the region as “The Country Parson,” as well as the founding pastor of the Heritage Country Cowboy Church, Scranton, Kan., will also be leading at prayer stops on the route.
Event staff will line up those going on the prayer march from 10:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. From the church parking lot, they will march south on Cedar St., west on Seventh St., south on Maple St., and arrive at Overbrook City Hall, 401 Maple St. After a few words and prayer, the march will return the same route back to Grace Community Church in Overbrook.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Due to COVID-19, all participants are asked to wear a mask during the march and practice social distancing.
