CHURCH HILL — A Women’s Prayer Night has been scheduled in Church Hill on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Church Hill Intermediate School.
As the Expecting God’s Help movement continues to grow in Hawkins County and surrounding areas, more prayer groups and events are being organized on a weekly basis.
The Women’s Prayer Night will begin with a free snack-type supper and will be followed by fellowship, a guest speaker, music and prayer.
All women throughout Hawkins County and surrounding counties are invited to attend.
The main emphasis of the event will be prayer for families, friends, communities, Hawkins County and the country.
“We want to continue to pray in one accord as God’s people,” said event organizer Shirley Stapleton of Church Hill. “It is our prayer that the Expecting God’s Help Women’s Prayer Night is another source for women to serve, grow and glorify God through prayer.”
The Rogersville-based Christian group Expecting God’s Help has organized several recent events including the prayer rallies at Cherokee High School in Rogersville and in Church Hill at Volunteer High School.
Most recently, the group organized a prayer walk at the Hawkins County Justice Center.
Prayer groups have formed and are meeting weekly at Bulls Gap School, Mooresburg School and Surgoinsville.
Men’s Prayer Breakfast groups meet on alternating Thursdays at the National Guard armories in Mount Carmel and Rogersville.
“As a result of the prayer rallies, the Justice Center Prayer Walk and other prayer groups forming, we are seeing people come together in unity, stepping across denominational lines, and asking God to expose the darkness so the light of the Lord can shine,” said Expecting God’s Help organizer Kim Williams.
Expecting God’s Help is a nonprofit, all-volunteer group. If anyone would like to help offset the costs of these events, they can make a donation to Four Square Inc., c/o Expecting God’s Help, P.O. Box 35, Rogersville, Tenn. 37857.
Expecting God’s Help is in the process of planning other events in the near future.
