Christ Community Church (Presbyterian Church in America) will host a community prayer service for our military servicemen and women, our leaders, and our magistrates at 3:00 PM on Sunday afternoon, July 3, at its downtown Franklin chapel, 3rd Ave. and Church St.

In light of the downing of a chopper earlier this week in Afghanistan with Ft. Campbell and Franklin servicemen aboard as well as the intensifying conflicts with Afghan and Iraqi rebels, the pastors and congregation of Christ Community felt that Independence Day Weekend afforded our community an ideal opportunity to gather together both to give thanks for the sacrifices that have been made by our leaders and our men and women at arms and to supplicate the good providence of the Lord to guard them, protect them, and give them wisdom.

The prayer service will be open to the public. While cameras and microphones will not be suitable inside the chapel, pastors and family representatives of servicemen will be available for statements to members of the media immediately prior to the service.

For more information, contact Pastor Scott Roley at 615-468-2260
