This year’s National Day of Prayer will be held May 6, 2021. The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday in May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.
The traditional larger gathering that has taken place in Denison in recent years will be replaced by three smaller gatherings to create safety as we continue to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ministerial Alliance of Denison is encouraging citizens to join for prayer at one of three locations on May 6, from noon until 1pm. The locations are Mt. Olive Baptist Church (1131 Scullin Avenue), Parkside Baptist Church (301 Lillis Lane), and Park Avenue Church of Christ (3000 Park Avenue). The gatherings at Mt. Olive and Parkside will be indoor gatherings with social distancing in place and masks preferred. The gathering at Park Avenue will be an outdoor gathering where masks are optional.
Here at Park Avenue, we will be meeting in the prayer garden to pray together.
