Students, parents and faculty gathered to participate in this global day of prayer. The group was led in prayer by Coach Steve Futch. Prayers were also given by parents, Colonel Don Davis and Carla Darden as well as three lower school students, Graham Ford, Hunter Murray and Ellen Kesler. Davis Kinney brought his guitar and led the group in music.
The students released red, white and blue balloons that had prayer grams attached to them. The prayer grams were written by lower school FCA students. Over 90 prayer grams were submitted. Here are a few of the prayer grams written.
