Fairfield Glade Council of Churches to celebrate National Day of Prayer

CROSSVILLE — Thursday, May 1 marks the 63rd annual National Day of Prayer. The theme this year is "One Voice, United in Prayer!"

Again this year, the Fairfield Glade Council of Churches is sponsoring the National Day of Prayer program. We'll be gathering around the band–shell at Mirror Lake at the intersection of Peavine Rd. and Stonehenge Dr. (the 4–Way Stop) in Fairfield Glade. 

The activities will start at 11 a.m. and generally last about 45 minutes. Bring your lawn chair, plan to arrive early and pick your favorite spot. We will meet, rain or shine! In case of rain, the program will be moved to the Robin Hood Park Pavilion at the intersection of Peavine and Snead.

This year's scripture, Romans 15:6 reads "So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ," ties in perfectly with our theme of "One Voice, United in Prayer." We, the people as individuals, as a community and as a country, must place our faith in the unfailing character of our Creator, God. He alone is sovereign over all governments, authorities and men.

Anne Graham Lotz, the 2014 Honorary NDP Chairperson, has written a special prayer which will be read simultaneously throughout the nation at noon (EDT). Think about it! A huge wave of millions of prayers flowing from one coast to the other, illustrating the unity of God's people and acknowledging His dominion over the circumstances facing our nation.

At this crucial time in our country, we can do nothing more important than pray. Please mark your calendar, make the necessary arrangements to get off work if necessary, offer to pick up a neighbor who doesn't drive, carpool from your neighborhood; in other words, we need to make this a priority ... God needs to hear directly from our hearts. 

If you would like additional information on ways you can assist or volunteer, the local NDP staff has assembled a variety of resources that describe how to organize and publicize prayer breakfasts, worship services and rallies. They also have creative ideas for establishing meaningful devotional times for individuals and families. Please call 800–444–8828 to find out more.

Meet you at the Band Shell on Thursday, May 1, at 11 a.m.!

  • Abacus Column: Fairfield Glade golf courses — a product of talent, desire and commitment

    On a recent Friday morning, a friend and I were playing the back nine of Dorchester Golf course. At the tee box on the unique par three 13th Hole, we met a young gentleman named Rob Krumple. Rob is a course maintenance employee reporting to Dorchester Superintendent Mike Wilson. My friend and I often comment about the excellent condition of our courses and since we had opportunity to pass a compliment on to Rob, we did.
