The Rev. Jonathan Falwell, pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg and son of the late evangelist Jerry Falwell, will be guest speaker at a noon service on May 2 to mark the National Day of Prayer. The service, organized by representatives from a group of area churches, will be held at Downtown Moneta.
The Rev. Daniel Wheeler of Dwelling Place Christian Fellowship on the Bedford side, who is one of the organizers, said the public is invited to the non denominational service.
“This is one time we can lay down the things that divide us and come together to pray for our community and nation,” said Wheeler. “It is a national day of prayer, so we’re participating with the entire nation.”
The service will include praise and worship; a short message; and prayer.
Wheeler said attendance in years past has averaged about 150‑200 people.
In addition to Dwelling Place, other churches involved in organizing the service are Eastlake Community Church, Radford Baptist Church, Vitalize Church, Staunton Baptist Church and Morgans Baptist Church.
