TRUMANN, Ark. (KAIT) – The congregation of McCormick Baptist Church took to the streets on Sunday afternoon for their 22nd annual prayer walk.
Pastor Rick Kimery said this year’s prayer walk is more important than ever after two devastating years.
“We thought it would be great to be an encouragement and we could pray along the way and just show the love of Christ,” Pastor Kimery said.
Kimery added that it’s important for people to surround themselves with a community that loves them because “we can do more together than apart.”
Between an EF-2 tornado and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, worship leader Bailey Jones said there might be someone in the community who needed a safe place.
“We want to be a safe place,” Jones said. “A haven of peace for those who have gone through a difficult period and even those who are well. We never know.
Jones added that she works as a nurse at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital, saying she has seen “a lot of heartache and a lot of brokenness because of the pandemic,” and that she tries to be a blessing to others in his community and in his work. .
Participants in the prayer march wore palm leaves to commemorate Palm Sunday.
