National Day of Prayer event slated in Bicentennial Park

TICONDEROGA - Adirondack Community Fellowship, located at 14 Park Avenue in Ticonderoga, will be hosting the 60th annual "National Day of Prayer" event on Thursday, May 5 at 6 p.m. at the gazebo in Bicentennial Park. The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988 President Ronald Reagan established the first Thursday in May every year as the annual National Day of Prayer.

The National Day of Prayer, as designated by the US government, belongs to all Americans. It is not sponsored or owned by any one group. Adirondack Community Fellowship, in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer Taskforce, and many of the churches of Ticonderoga, would like to invite the citizens of Ticonderoga and surrounding areas to gather May 5 in prayer for the United States of America.

All those attending are asked to bring a lawn chair and an item to be donated to the Ticonderoga Food Bank. The event is free to the public, no offering will be taken. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved across the street to Cornerstone Alliance Church.

Additional information may be obtained from Pastor Steve Blanchard of Adirondack Community Fellowship. Call the ACF office at 636-6733 or e-mail pastorsteve@AdirondackCommunityFellowship.org. For announcements concerning the National Day of Prayer, visit www.AdirondackCommunityFellowship.org.
