Prayers were offered up last Wednesday at the Courthouse War Memorial as PACT (Prayer and Action in Christ Together) group held its annual Meet at the Flagpole ceremony in Bowling Green. Various churches and denominations from across the county were represented. This year’s theme was Awaken…Pray. Dr. Larry Twellman prayed for students. Frank Berlin prayed for all of the individuals that work in schools. Richard Biggs prayed for the Board of Education. Pastor Chris Gamm prayed for parents. Deborah Kraft prayed for churches. Brother Don Amelung prayed for communities and the nation. Biggs closed in leading the assembled crowd in “Amazing Grace,” and all recited the Lord’s Prayer. A similar ceremony took place at the flagpole at the high school before classes started.
