Education: Life Church of Rome hosting community back-to-school prayer event on July 26. Rundown of when students return to class.

Many local students will be heading back to school in just a matter of weeks. As teachers, parents and students prepare for the upcoming school year, Life Church of Rome wants to offer the community an opportunity to cover everything in prayer. A community-wide prayer event is scheduled for Friday, July 26 at Life Church located at 19 John Davenport Drive. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event will begin at 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

“We just wanted to open up this opportunity for anyone who has a heart to pray for our teachers, administrators, school staff members and students,” says Mandy Perry with Life Church. “We want teachers and administrators to know that we are here for them…to have them feel encouraged, inspired and hopeful as they start a new school year.”

There will be coffee and desserts at 6:30 p.m., as well as a raffle for various artwork. The event will also feature musical entertainment and guest speaker Raissa Kumbandi from Mount Paran Church. The prayer time will focus on three areas: prayer for physical location of schools/safety; prayer for students; and prayer for teachers/administrators/staff. There will be childcare available.
