WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Church members of First United Methodist Church came together Sunday, Aug. 11 to pray for the upcoming school year.
Church members simultaneously converged on all WFISD campuses at 1 p.m. to pray for God’s blessings on the students, teachers, and faculty and staff.
Lauri Cooper, church member, said “I’m grateful for the opportunity to pray for our students and community, and to show that we all work together for the better good. I hope our community gets out of this that we’re one, we’re united, and together we can make great things happen.”
