From Armuchee Middle School Assistant Principal Jill Thacker:
The student athletes, their families, coaches and the community took part in a special prayer service for the family following Wednesday evening’s middle school game. Below is the note shared about that event earlier in the day.
(Wednesday), instead of having a Fifth Quarter at the end of the middle school game, we are hosting a community prayer for the Williams/Floyd family. The focus will be to let Aiden Williams and his family know the Armuchee football program is praying for him. I have spoken with all of the rec department coaches along with cheerleading coaches. I have also lined up various church officials to meet with the different age groups… Bob Agan will meet and pray with high school age students.
In speaking with Coach Elliott, he thinks the game will end around 5:45. We are going to have the different age groups meet individually with a prayer leader (three to five minutes) and then Jason Stockton (Life Church) will lead everyone in a large group prayer. We are wanting this to be meaningful but yet get everyone back to their home churches in time to attend Wednesday night services.
Please share with your teams. If they can make it, I am asking the coaches and players to meet me toward the field house during the fourth quarter. This way we can determine the space needed for each group.
Thank you for allowing us to use your field for this. The mother is very appreciative of all the prayers and support.
