LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Victory Over Violence is hosting a city-wide Prayer Rally to gather the churches of Central Arkansas to pray for peace. We will worship together, pray together, and hear from key leaders about opportunities for the church to meet the needs of our city.
Congressman French Hill applauded pastors for stepping up and getting involved with the upcoming Victory Over Violence prayer rally at War Memorial Stadium.
"We can't really have Victory Over Violence if we don't get families and people of faith engaged in all of our neighborhoods, Congressman French Hill said. "So I'm excited that that's taking place. I appreciate the pastors who have stepped up to do that and support the effort."
The event will be held Monday, October 9 at 7 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. You can RSVP for the event and spread the word using this Facebook Event Page.
The Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally is a significant opportunity for the churches of Little Rock to put faith into action. Our churches are an integral part of the community, and it is time for us to come together and engage the need. Governor Asa Hutchinson will be among those speaking at the October 9 event.
"Our churches have always been a force for change in the community," said Victory Over Violence co-founder Austin Kellerman. "We're at a point where we need that force to help improve the lives of people across Little Rock. If we're going to tackle this problem, we need people of faith to lead the way and put 'love of neighbor' in action."
"We are inviting all Little Rock Pastors to participate and mobilize your church to attend the Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally,” said Logan Bloom of Arkansas for Christ. “In moments like these, God calls the church to gather as a regional body with a regional response."
Pastors are asked to RSVP using this Eventbrite link.
