First Lutheran Helps Plan Community Event "To Pray and Serve"
First Lutheran Church is among a number of Cedar Rapids area churches who have been meeting with police officers for months in response to the violence surrounding police across our country. These conversations have led to a community prayer service for police accountability and officer’s safety open to the public on Nov. 20. The public and media are welcome to attend. Our congregation will be leading prayers and providing refreshments at one of the four sites. Other churches involved include Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Ascension Lutheran Church, Assembly of God, New Covenant Bible Church, First Church of the Nazarene, and Oakhill Jackson Community Church. The group's next and final planning meeting at 2 p.m. Wed. Nov. 9 at the Hiawatha Library. We could use one or two more people in the planning. If you'd like to get involved please contact Pastor Craig Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
