In light of recent events surrounding the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, we will be coming together with other houses of faith in the Newton community to hold a special interfaith prayer vigil for healing in this nation and a renewed courage to be faithful responders in this moment in our history.

This special service will be held on Sunday, August 24 at 1:00pm at Myrtle Baptist Church.
