Mayors Prayer Breakfast on the National Day of Prayer

The mayors of Newton and North Newton are hosting a third annual prayer breakfast from 7-8 a.m. on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 7th at the VFW Hall. The event will start the day with prayer for our nation, state, county and cities, as well as local emergency personnel, families and schools, and churches.

Modeled after the annual National Day of Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. first hosted by Kansas' own President Eisenhower and Congress in 1953 and each year after, local organizers hope to inspire greater prayer for our community and country leaders while offering a time of reflection and inspiration.

Mayors Raquel Thiesen and Ron Braun will be hosts of the event, with prayer led by community leaders representing the various areas to be prayed for interwoven with special music, group singing and a refreshing breakfast. All are invited.

On behalf of the mayors, organizers from the Kiwanis, Rotary, and Lions Clubs, the Newton Ministerial Alliance and The Missional Church Network have received broad support for this third city wide event.

Tickets are available at all Newton First Bank locations for $10.
