Presbyterian Church Plans ‘National Day Of Prayer Event

A National Day of Prayer event will be held at the Presbyterian Church of Mountain Top on Thursday, May 1 at 7 p. m. in the Fellowship Hall.

This is the 5th year the church is hosting national day of Prayer event. The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by a 1775 proclamation made by the Continental Congress, setting aside a day of prayer.

Congress established this event in 1952, and in 1988 that law was amended designating the first Thursday in May as National Day of Prayer.

Members of the community and area churches are invited to join the Presbyterian Church for this event. If anyone is interested in taking part in the program please call the church office at 570-474-9951 or contact Linda Weaver.
