Fall prayer walk set for Sunday

Published 6:16pm Friday, August 1, 2014

The Chilton Baptist Association will hold a fall prayer walk at Chilton County schools Aug. 3 and LeCroy Career Technical Center on Aug. 24.

“The prayer walk is for all people, all cultures,” coordinator Bobbie Traywick said in a press release. “We ask that you go out and support our Board of Education and staff, and our schools and the staff in our schools.”

CBA has sponsored a prayer walk at local schools for more than 15 years.

“Our students need to know that we support them and the education each student receives,” Traywick said. “Prayer is the most important school supply that we can give them. Everyone can participate in praying for each school and each student.”

The walk is open to anyone that wants to participate.

Participants may go to the school or schools of their choice.

CBA’s annual spring prayer walk has taken place since 2004, and a fall prayer walk was later added to provide two walks each year.

The fall prayer walk is traditionally held the first Sunday in August, while the spring walk takes place the first Sunday in April unless Easter is the same day.

The following is a schedule for the 2014 fall prayer walk:

•Clanton Elementary School: Aug. 3 at 6:15 p.m.
