Pray Farragut, a group of individuals who already are regularly praying for Farragut schools and community, is hosting a Back to School Prayer Walk from 2 to 4 p.m., this Sunday, Aug. 4, at Farragut High School.
The event is open to any individual or families.
“Please join us as we pray for our FHS staff, students and families,” said Terri Tucker of Christ Covenant Church, which is just one of many area churches involved with the movement.
“The Prayer Walk is meant to bring prayerful families together to support the staff, students and families at the Farragut Schools,” Tucker added.
Prayer guides will be available outside under the covered sidewalk approaching the main school entryway.
The initiative itself is designed to encourage community-wide participation from all area Christian churches, and evolved after church members from First Baptist Concord, Two Rivers, Christ Covenant Presbyterian, Fellowship Church and Faith Promise found themselves working together during front office clean-ups at FHS, which was led by FBC.
“During the cleaning, a mutual hope to unite in prayer, support and service emerged,” Tucker said.
“There have been multiple churches meeting at (Farragut) Primary School over the summer serving in various ways (cleaning, mulching, remodeling, painting), and I believe there is a greater recognition by many community members that so much good can happen when we each get out side the walls of our own church family and embrace our community as one body in Christ,” she added.
